Critic Reviews for Louis

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (4)

  • With a pace and cinematic language openly inspired by Charlie Chaplin, it's as much a riff on silent movies as it is a coming-of-age tale with a whiff of political farce.

    September 1, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Faux silent-film melodrama is mostly a novelty, but the jazz score, performed live by Wynton Marsalis for select engagements, is a real treat.

    August 31, 2010 | Full Review…
  • Though commendably attentive to Chaplin-esque pantomime on the part of lead villain Jackie Earle Haley, this cinematic anomaly falls flat as a stand-alone.

  • Louis may superficially resemble movies of a bygone age, but it lacks their essence: masterful effortlessness.

    August 24, 2010 | Full Review…
  • The problem with Louis is that it gets distracted from what it does best, and a Chaplin pastiche is no substitute for the real thing.

    March 19, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Louis is in every way a tribute to regressive nostalgia.

    August 23, 2010 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
