The pace is leaden, and the story sends you out feeling as if you know little more about Williams than you did when you entered.

I Saw the Light doesn't just fail to illuminate Williams' complicated life and his prodigious talent; it can't even capture the dark corners of a man with more than enough to peer into.

Sadly, the movie is a snooze, but see it just for the magnificent Hiddleston, who honors Williams' greatness but also wriggles beyond it.

Hiddleston is compelling as Williams, the king of hillbilly music, noting that when he finds a note he's fond of, "I like to hang on to it." One might say the same about director Abraham.

Hiddleston's uncanny musical performances, all filmed live, help redeem a movie that exhibits the flawed brilliance of its subject.

Saw the Light is not a movie that ever catches fire. One hopes the story will be told again, with more emphasis on what went on inside Hank Williams than on what went on around him.

Tom Hiddleston's excellent performance as Hank Williams deserved a better film but the performance alone is not enough to save I Saw The Light.

I Saw the Light has a fascinating subject...but still ends up rather a plonky misfire.

Though there are "steel guitars and weeping fiddles" a-plenty, as a final comment sums up, and despite the good performances throughout, the film still feels like a missed opportunity to get to the heart of its intriguing subject.

I Saw the Light is unstructured and slogs its way through the troubled rise and fall of arguably one of country music's most legendary figures.
