Benign, banal, and sometimes boring inspirational drama.

Accepting the zen of golf is easy. It's The Legend of Bagger Vance and a callow Will Smith as a mystical golf guru that's hard to swallow.

Instead of taking on a life of its own, Redford's film reminds you of ones you've seen before. Legends deserve better.

Sit this one out. Please.

Eastern theology suffers the same fate as Western theology in today's Hollywood, which gave God a minimal role in The Prince of Egypt.

The Legend Of Bagger Vance takes a dry, sluggish and eerily zombie-like hobby and makes it even LESS interesting.

While everything about Bagger Vance looks stunning, its perfectionism comes at the price of genuine drama.
May 21, 2001
Another lusciously produced, emotionally clammy Redford enterprise -- forced, phony mythmaking filled with tinged sunsets and full moons.

El resultado final es una cinta pobremente dirigida, muy bien fotografiada, con una que otra secuencia llamativa, pero que carece totalmente de vida.

Pretentious piffle.

The script as now feels like a bunch of dots with the lines between them missing.
January 1, 2000
The film has no thematic or dramatic weight to justify the effort.
January 1, 2000
It's so utterly vague and mystical -- or, to be unkind about it, so slow the movie itself seems to be suffering from a hardening of the arteries.

Why ... would someone of Redford's proven abilities waste his time on something this frivolous, this negligible -- this out of touch?
January 1, 2000
Why should we care about rich people exploiting the poor to save their fortunes during the Depression?
January 1, 2000
Redford is so fascinated with the mythical qualities of the novel's premise ... he doesn't realize how anemic the tale really is.
January 1, 2000
A knuckleheaded period piece anachronistically strewn with New Age platitudes.
