The portrayal of Hitchcock is the obvious centerpiece, and while Anthony Hopkin's temperament is not quite lugubrious or phlegmatic enough, we eventually see past it.

The pleasure of Hitchcock comes in large part from the sparring between Mirren and Hopkins. As you'd expect, they're a class act, delivering the old married couple routine with conviction and plenty of humour.

It's rare for a biopic to deliver so little insight into its subject.

Wallows in fat jokes and wink-wink nudge-nudge references that anybody with even a passing knowledge of cinema history will find eye-rollingly obvious.

Without Helen Mirren, James D'Arcy and a few interesting scenes, this flat, lifeless exploration of Alfred Hitchcock's making of "Psycho" lacks depth or a suitable anchor.

There are a multitude of sordidly fascinating directions a biopic on Alfred Hitchcock could take. So, when Sacha Gervasi's flat and frothy Hitchcock concludes, it's inevitably frustrating to find this film takes such a conventional path.

A movie about the late great director poses a question too great to ignore: how does one truly capture the idea of Hitchcock in a span of only 99 minutes? The answer is you can't, and here is a movie that, thankfully, knows that.

If you can disregard your desire for authenticity and scrupulous historical accuracy, this is light fun with a sweet relationship at the center of it.

The movie hits the beats, but lacks depth.

... a slight, forgettable movie. Sometimes that's enough.

The Cook/Reville subplot is pretty standard stuff, so the movie is pretty lopsided, but the behind-the-scenes stuff surrounding Psycho is very compelling, even if it's not 100 percent true.

A half-hearted, clunky stab at psychodrama.

Hopkins' performance makes "Hitchcock" as much fun as one of the old episodes from "Alfred Hitchcock Presents."

Alternatively devilish, wry, soulful, and witty, Hitchcock presents a singing celebration of one of cinema's great unsung collaborations

All we mostly get to see is the sad, silent contemplation of an old, weary, prosthetically constructed man

Occasional flair and an A-list cast are simply not enough to carry this erratic origins story.

With Hitchcock, Gervasi, maker of beguiling rock documentary Anvil, has come up with a breezy entertainment rather than an in-depth biopic. You won't find any real insights into Hitchcock's filmmaking process or his psyche.

Hitchcock is both polished and crude, its accurate research not matched by original insight.

Here's a film fact you should tell your friends: Alfred Hitchcock was given his first directing job by... a Brummie.

"A nice, clean, nasty piece of work" is how Hopkins' stand-in describes the superior film within the film. Gervasi's movie is just nice and clean and that's not nearly Hitchcockian enough for a film that carries the name.
