I'd have thought it was impossible to overdo the role of Hitler, but Noah Taylor does just that in Max.

It doesn't offer audiences any way of gripping what its point is, or even its attitude toward its subject.

It takes talent to make a lifeless movie about the most heinous man who ever lived.

December 27, 2002
Perceptive in its vision of nascent industrialized world politics as a new art form, but far too clunky, didactic and saddled with scenes that seem simply an ill fit for this movie.

Although Max is a kitschy and often risible historical fantasy ... this Hungarian-Canadian-British co-production, directed by Meyjes from his own script, is not devoid of ideas.

It's a big idea, but the film itself is small and shriveled.

With lines that feel like long soliloquies -- even as they are being framed in conversation -- Max is static, stilted.

The film is torn between playing [Taylor's] character for real and as a dangerous joke.

So this is what a rhetorical question looks like on the big screen.

Max has 'first-time director' written all over it, and the arresting, contemplative subject matter demands a more experienced filmmaker to do it justice.

A subject like Hitler deserves stronger psychological exploration than such a fairy-tale-level story is able to handle.

Works better in the conception than it does in the execution...winds up seeming just a little too clever.
