Revolutionary Road Reviews
December 18, 2020
In making a better man out of Frank Wheeler, Mendes and Haythe have, unfortunately, thrown out one of the real achievement's of Yates's novel: his ruthless critique of 1950s masculinity.

Even the climax of the film is laughable, along with nearly every complementary sequence in which they bicker and yell continuously.

Based on the 1961 novel by Richard Yates, there is a been-there, done-that feeling about the film.

Revolutionary Road shows something people think they want to see but really don't: what happens if Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet survive the Titanic.

Mr. Mendes at least has an idea what he should be going for even though he ultimately fails.

There is not a shred of hope, light or even life in Mendes' fourth film.

These people are not tragic, they're not even pathetic - they're fountains of soap-opera profundities.

From the director of American Beauty comes another empty, fake-meaningful tale of how rotten it is in the suburbs.

Revolutionary Road offers nothing you can't see on TV, with more compelling narratives and better performances (save for Michael Shannon).

The characters in this film are weak-willed, pathetic losers. I just couldn't muster much sympathy for the characters that couldn't burst out of the cages of their own design.

Revolutionary Road is content to stick with hoary cliches about the emptiness of middle-class bourgeois life.

...more of a sedate lecture on values than a revealing or entertaining look at life and love.

Can't tell whether Mendes speaks through his characters or speaks about them
March 2, 2009
Chilly and academic, thoroughly admirable but one step removed from the very real angst of a movie like The Man in the Grey Flannel Suit (1956).
February 5, 2009
The film is blatantly aimed at the Oscar committee - anyone else may well find it slightly dull.

If ever there were a film that aimed for the zeitgeist and missed badly, it's this one.
