The central pair's shattering, once-in-a-lifetime passion cries out for more urgency and emotional power.

May 26, 2008
Handsomely produced, with a typically mesmerizing performance by Redford, alas this fails to exploit its intriguing political background and ends up being more of a routine and ineffective romance.
May 26, 2008
Elaborate visual mounting and iconographic placement of the romantic leads are the movie's preoccupation, with the overthrow of Batista merely providing local color.
May 26, 2008
Unfortunately, against that impressive backdrop, Pollack mounts a film that is lifeless and slow-moving, offering neither a compelling love story nor a tense tale of a city in turmoil.

May 26, 2008
Director Sydney Pollack and star Robert Redford have lost their normally dependable quality touch as they slog through a notably uncompelling $45 million-plus tale of a gringo caught up in the Cuban revolution.

Another top-notch effort from Pollack.

March 22, 2008
Mediocre Redford drama set in Cuba of semi-old, directed OK by Pollack.

It drips with class and craftsmanship, but the magic is not there

May 20, 2003
The glittering decadence of this culture on the verge of collapse is in fact the film's most fascinating aspect, and Mr. Pollack has re-created it extravagantly.

Some fundamental things still do apply as time goes go by.
January 1, 2000
At best, Pollack achieves a counterfeit sense of this atmosphere. But he insists on continuing the card game anyway, an over-extended misdeal of a movie that refuses to fold.

The lesson: Get into practice before remaking a classic. And until then, here's not looking at you, kids.
January 1, 2000
Superficial, contrived and talky.

Yu might as well look at the background; you are not missing much in the foreground.
