Hail, Caesar! Reviews

August 29, 2019
A mighty fine few hours in the cinema.
July 10, 2019
As far as escapist fare goes, it's a pleasant offering, particularly for audiences tuned into its plentiful cinematic references.

Hail, Caesar! captures laughs from literal slapstick, insane imagery and witty banter. But all of it is under the moon of a fascinating argument about "faith" and art.
June 5, 2019
A great, big love letter to the Golden Age of Hollywood manages not only to showcase a plethora of old Hollywood genres, but also be all of them at once.

In the end, it was a mixed bag attempt at satire, not the great spoof I was hoping for. Still, some definite laughs, so not a total loss.
April 10, 2019
Bright, glitzy, cutting - and most importantly really, really funny - the brilliantly written and perfectly cast Hail, Caesar! is a raucous smorgasbord of Coen motifs.

Clearly, everyone involved is having a good time, and between the costumes, sets, the absurdity of it all and the witty dialogue, "Hail, Caesar!" has enough going for it to entertain but doesn't aim to be anything greater than what it is.

Mannix's plate-spinning is involving enough, but I couldn't help but yearn for more time with the rest of the cast.

Hail, Caesar! is a worthy addition to the Coen Brothers' filmography of thrilling titles covering both drama and comedy.

Hail, Ceasar! is a film that contains a true dark humor and it's what makes it stand out. [Full Review in Spanish]

The film is broken down into individual bits that aren't cohesive and don't combine to create a story that flows.

Parodying the rich and famous in the Golden Age, Hail, Caesar! is an entertaining satire and love note to Hollywood.

The humor is much more subversive than laugh out loud funny. It's definitely worth a look for Coens fans and those who love films in general.
January 9, 2019
Catholics, Communists, and classic Hollywood are all equally celebrated and caricatured in the Coen Brothers' latest comedy caper. After all, it's a Christ tale. And a musical.

Hail, Caesar! is a mostly lively, occasionally wandering, usually entertaining and uncommonly heartfelt rebuttal to such complaints.

As much praise as they deservedly get, The Coen Brothers don't always hit it out of the park, and Hail, Caesar! probably won't become a classic like many of their other films.

A conflicted story that is also about losing faith in established institutions like Hollywood. Hail, Caesar! finds The Coens in a comfort zone all while paying homage to vintage filmmaking with a wink.

I was certainly entertained while watching it, but I did feel so let down by what could have been a classic Coen brothers movie.
October 16, 2018
When you look at this as an ode to the way Hollywood used to make movies, that's done really well, and the performances are off the charts.
August 30, 2018
There's lots of fun to be had here, much whimsy and fun grounded by the serious issues of the time. Ultimately Hail Caesar is a bouncy satire with a heart of gold to brighten February's pall.
