It is easily one of 2007's most inspiring and rewarding cinematic experiences.

A shockingly bungled opportunity for greatness and quite possibly the most disappointing film of 2007.

A remarkable story with tremendous human interest, about people we think we've figured out, but about whom we actually know next to nothing.

A skilfully made and subtly powerful film, with a disarmingly human protagonist whose efforts seem all the more real, given his weaknesses and the movie's authentic feel.

The Kite Runner will no doubt warm the hearts of its intended audience, but its nature is one of dubious flattery.

The Kite Runner is solid and competently made, but then those are words one always uses when a piece of art falls short of greatness.
