If John Duigan set out to make the most preposterous, over-the-top and sweeping epic he could cobble together, then he succeeded with a vengeance.

Great, gooey, hot-fudge sundae of a love story.

There's plenty of eye candy -- gorgeous scenery, gorgeous costumes, gorgeous people -- to keep the viewer from minding (too much) the Olympic leaps of faith required to invest in the film's plot.

This is never a great film. In scattered stretches, though, it's a very good one.

It wants to be a hard-panting melodrama, with spies and sex and love and death, and there are times when a movie like this is exactly what you feel like indulging.

A brilliantly conceived and delivered extension of the obsessions that have driven one of our finest directors to create excellent cinema for years.

Flawed as it may be, Duigan's film is still a terrific showcase for Theron, whose magnetic performance should erase any lingering doubts that her Oscar win for Monster was a fluke.

Perplexing as the characters are, the story is involving and the ending as the Allies drive the Nazis out of Paris is thought-provoking.

It is considerably more interesting when it is exploring the seeming contradiction between Gilda's loyalty and her hedonistic tendencies.

Even as a potboiler, this melodrama is too silly and improbable to be enjoyed as trash
Full Review | Original Score: D

Tyrone Power would have more chemistry courting Deanna Durbin in a deep coma. Theron destroys all her Monster acting cred. Cruz squeaks like a hamster huffing helium.

December 18, 2004
Miscast leads and ersatz emotions leave the film's soundstagey period ambiance as its most comparable asset. A handsome misfire.

December 11, 2004
The film is emotionally distanced from its audience, too stoic and stuffy. You'd never guess a film with as much sex as this one could be so stodgy, but there you go.
Full Review | Original Score: C

This would-be wartime epic romance is so intent on setting a dream-like atmosphere that it fails to develop either the situation or characters in a convincing fashion.
