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.

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 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.

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

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.

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

What could have been an intriguing look at how Alfred Hitchcock created one of his most iconic masterpieces is instead turned into a gently entertaining romp.

Hitchcock remains an enjoyable film. A film about Hitchcock this may be, but not necessarily a film for Hitchcock fans.

An enjoyable and humorous Hopkins and another wonderful performance from Mirren make this film quietly watchable.

Sacha Gervasi's muddled but endearing biopic of/homage to The Master of Suspense.

Anthony Hopkins dons the facial flab as Hitch, does the voice well enough and the portly-erect, pontifical stature better.

Smartly directed and sharply written, this is an entertaining, emotionally engaging drama with a pair of tremendous performances from Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren.

Another excellent, less-than-flattering biopic of a Hollywood icon.

A surprisingly bright-and-breezy affair in which the action moves briskly and with no little humour.

Hitchcock happily displays its skeleton, but is lacking in the way of flesh. Not unlike Norman Bates's mother.

Hitchcock for dummies: brisk, jolly, well-played but oversimplified.
