This is cliché heaped on cliché and hopelessly artificial.

... loses steam when the catfighting abruptly gives way to grim realpolitik.

Apart from the close ups of the lead actresses in 16th century garb, this movie is recommended only to soap opera aficionados and lovers of corsets.

A run-of-the-mill costume drama that made me think more about running home and Wikipedia-ing the characters than investing in the story before me.

Portman confere peso dramtico Ana Bolena, mas Johansson e Bana parecem seguir no piloto automtico. Alm disso, as liberdades histricas tomadas pelo roteiro so absurdas demais para poderem ser ignoradas.

The falling blade is the only element not missing the mark in this film. I wanted to call for the beheading after Act One, and spare the audience instead.

The film gets a full 'This is a work of fiction' disclaimer, even noting that any resemblance to any person living or dead is unintentional. That tells you something about how much trust to put in these historical CliffsNotes.

If only there was some nobility among these royals.

Such unwieldy mechanisms only draw attention to the movie's narrative contrivances.

Hey, wait a minute, is the movie supposed to be this funny?

Feels like an Oscar-bait title that somehow got its DNA mixed up with a daytime soap opera.

Ultimately we are meant to eat chocolates, admire their trembling lower lips, and choose sides.

With only one member of its love triangle really delivering, this packs less of an emotional punch than it ought. And who'd be a courtier, eh?

Why in the name of ermine boleros would anyone make such a dull, coy and, worst of all, pretty film about Anne Boleyn?
March 6, 2008
The worst thing? It's all hysterical and histrionic, and yet completely dull. I'm not certain how one manages that.
March 5, 2008
A disappointing costume drama.
March 5, 2008
The filmmakers have taken a trashy, overheated story of court intrigue and sexual duplicity and sucked the life out of it.
March 4, 2008
There isn't an enjoyable character in the bunch of this tragedy that constantly spirals downward.
