The pace is so pedestrian it's a wonder the entire cast aren't on Zimmer frames.

There have been several 'what if' movies about what Britain might have been like had the Nazis occupied us. This is one of the worst.

The film has the feel of Sunday night telly - perfectly serviceable, but not much more.

Not bad, but it falls far short of It Happened Here.

Fails to capitalise on its intriguing premise and the pacing is painfully slow throughout.

Ostensibly about decency and tough moral choices, these movies are actually an excuse to watch pretty people striding through pretty countryside.

There is little conventional suspense or action, just an undertone of violence, and a sense of hallucination and disorientation.

Riseborough ... reminds us yet again what a great film actress she could be, in the right context.

A cold, bleak film. Riseborough is superb, but an all-too-brief Michael Sheen cameo underscores what's missing: conflict.

Gupta's faithfully muted approach to Sheers' literary atmosphere is both Resistance's illusive strength and its hindrance.

Gupta, working from novelist Owen Sheer's screenplay, isn't tempted by big bangs and action setpieces, preferring to keep the narrative subtly human scale.

A beautiful, elliptical war film with the haunting qualities of a ghost story. Riseborough is terrific and Gupta proves that he's a talent to watch.

It's a great idea, and the filmmaking is sensitive and complex, although it's never as exciting as it should be.
