Doesn't have the teeth to properly wrestle with its theological themes nor the bite to give the titular figure's perspective any real clarity.

Davis keeps the effort crawling along, electing to make something visually appealing and insular than traditionally dramatic.

So earnest and reverent that it's just dull.

I'll freely admit that I'm not a religious person and perhaps this influences my opinion... but I didn't find Mary Magdalene to be an interesting character.

Rooney Mara is a remarkable actress, suggestive, sober, but her presence does not alleviate in the midst of so much boredom. [Full Review in Spanish]
April 9, 2018
An intermittently convincing film about belief, rather than a film to believe in.
April 4, 2018
It turns out to be a failed exercise...redundant, slow and schematic. [Full Review in Spanish]
April 3, 2018
For a film that is meant to be all about belief, Mary Magdalene is curiously lacking in the stuff.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The film is so slow at times it becomes monotonous. [Full Review in Spanish]

Mary Magdalene here is a woman who fights for what she believes, who moves away from her family to follow Jesus... [Full review in Spanish]

A film of little dialogue, almost entirely made of mood. But the mood is pretty magical ... truly depicts how scary it would be to see someone brought back from the dead ... title is a cheat; this is the story of Christ, even if he has less close-ups.

The Greatest Story Ever Told? No, just a tiring slog.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Whatever the reason for the muted and often unintentionally pretentious outcome of Mary Magdalene, those who relished the refined work of Davis on the global hit Lion will be sorely disappointed by his choice of follow-up.

The story is familiar but the take thought-provoking and quietly revolutionary in its depiction of the manipulation of records.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

A beautiful bore.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
March 23, 2018
Everyone looks way too clean, they endlessly pontificate in a variety of accents and it's awfully hard nowadays to take any biblical movie seriously since Monty Python's Life Of Brian.

Phoenix's Jesus is softly, tactilely loving. Davis brings you close enough to almost feel the weave of his clothes.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
March 21, 2018
It's a cheerless, ideologically driven movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 21, 2018
Mary Magdalene is an overdue retelling of the story, one that restores Mary of Magdala to her acknowledged place and more.

It's admirable that a young director in the wake of Oscars success has chosen such a risky follow up, and though the result isn't completely satisfying, the attempt is worthwhile.
