Critic Reviews for Risen

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

  • Unfortunately the film doesn't quite get to grips with it on anything other than a superficial level, seemingly too charmed by the polite, respectful lead character to get down and dirty with any bigger issues, so punches are pulled in the drama.

  • All trousers, no mouth.

  • The re-creation of the 1960s backdrop on a tight budget sadly never allows the director to unleash the epic sweep this against-the-odds yarn really requires.

  • KO -ed by a flabby screenplay and lacking the money to do justice to the '60s setting, director Neil Jones falls back on clever tricks - like using an HD Glove Cam - but fails to punch above his weight.

  • Stodgy fare that eulogises the man rather than delving deeply into his compelling life.
