The film offers such a rich array of archival footage, interviews, and candid photography that it's no struggle to put together a picture of the kind of man Pavarotti was.

A useful primer for those unfamiliar with Pavarotti's career and works as a charming trip down memory lane for people who are already fans.

One of the film's most compelling moments, aside from "Nessun Dorma," is the performance of The Three Tenors, Pavarotti, Spaniards Plácido Domingo and José Carreras...

An acceptable but nevertheless disappointing conventional biopic.

A lyrical scale that Ron Howard harmonizes to the greater glory of Luciano Pavarotti. [Full Review in Spanish]

Cinematically, there's nothing terribly distinctive about the film; just the usual clear, capable, well-managed Ron Howard narrative craftsmanship. No more was necessary here.

Howard's been a highly skilled storyteller for a long time now, and he knows how to flesh out a theme.

I walked out of this movie feeling good, which I think is the gift Pavarotti returned to everyone.

Perhaps the duration and style of Ron Howard's documentary, which abandons fiction for a moment, is of a traditional nature, however, he chose a great and unmissable character that is substantial to know to value his art. [Full Review in Spanish]

Director Ron Howard knows how to make it emotional and appealing, to make us love the man as well as the extraordinary voice, as he skims the surface of a grand life and career.

The doco is at its very best when it gets to show us plenty of Pavarotti in his showstopping, heart-starting prime, peaking with his work with the incomparable Joan Sutherland and (most famously of all) as part of The Three Tenors.

This is a robust picture of the maestro, and one fans will covet.

A celebration of a life that runs close to two hours will test anyone's patience, especially one stuffed with this much repetitive praise.

Pavarotti was the Babe Ruth of tenors, and with Opie behind the wheel, there's an element of fandom that creeps into the mix - by keeping things out of the mix.

...a marvelous documentary that strikes the perfect balance to please both opera-loving Pavarotti fans who know his work well and those who are new to opera...

It is done respectfully and lovingly, with the occasional criticism that he could be demanding.

Pavarotti is a delight. At times hard to watch, but ever so entertaining and explosive exploring one of the most captivating and astonishing artists of the 20th century and showcasing every nook and cranny it can to fully realise such an iconic performer.

It's a lovely tribute from one superstar-tenor to another from an earlier generation.

Plenty for fans to enjoy here, but the uninitiated who are looking for a good yarn may be left wanting.
