Cate is a wondrous actress but she is scandalously ill served here, and not just by the facile nature of the dialogue... It's as if the director has a checklist of the characteristics he wishes her to display and she should just get on with it.

While the performances keep the film afloat, Kapur's over indulgent direction and his inadequate interpretation of history comes dangerously close to running it aground.

But saddled with this dopey script, [Blanchett] is stuck pulling a series of poses and wearing one ornate gown after another.

Blanchett is again director Shekhar Kapur's greatest asset. His weakness is his tendency to fall back on silly, melodramatic contrivance better suited to popcorn fare than to a believable meditation on Elizabethan England.

Figurinos, direção de arte e fotografia são exuberantes, mas fica até difícil apreciar a performance de Cate Blanchett em meio a um roteiro tão estúpido e à direção "olhem-pra-mim-sou-Cecil-B.-DeMille!" de Shekhar Kapur.

A sequel, a costume fantasy, a romantic melodrama, a CGI war spectacular, a puzzling celebration of beauty over substance.

Menos interesante y más rutinaria que la primera Elizabeth (de 1998), esta segunda parte vale la pena más que nada por otra brillante composición de Cate Blanchett.

a muddle that subsumes [its] premise in a mighty attempt to be several things all at once, with an uneven delivery

... fearsome and passionate with its visual flair, but incredibly confused as to how it wants to address Elizabeth's life beyond what has already been realized.

The elaborate costumes and set decoration provide the only interest.

Unreliable as history and misguided as a contemporary allegory, Golden Age finally fails because it is a half-hearted spectacle, not even filmed in a widescreen format.
November 5, 2007
Cate Blanchett's workaholic Queen Liz too busy for boy toys, in this royal runway strut more about fashion statements than political statements.

The pity of this botched follow-up is that it never once touches us.

Where Kapur's first Elizabeth was cool, cerebral, fascinatingly concerned with complex plotting, the new movie is pitched at the level of a Jean Plaidy romantic novel.

The film is just about worth seeing for the wigs and costumes. But Elizabeth: The Golden Age sank without trace in American cinemas, and I fear it will do the same here.
November 1, 2007
Making soap of statecraft, the film has plenty of juicy moments, but offers an inconsistent rather than complex view of Elizabeth.

okay, but more silver than gold this time out.
