  • Lemmons' film isn't more than a star vehicle for Erivo. Which isn't a failure, but it flies far beneath the heights of what could have been.

  • It's a disappointing and formulaic portrait. Erivo - and Harriet Tubman - deserve a better vehicle.

  • An impassioned, edifying portrait of a remarkable life, and a fitting showcase for the considerable talents of its star, Tony-winning British actress Cynthia Erivo.

  • What better entry point for learning about one of America's real-life superheroes than this bravura performance from Erivo?

  • A disappointingly standard biopic, one whose technical flaws and paint-by-numbers clichés threaten to overshadow its subject's compelling story.

  • History, heroism and leadership are the stuff of Kasi Lemmons' rousing and heartfelt film about the life and times of Harriet Tubman, the Spartacus of the American south.
