It is a failed movie because it relies too much on the strength of the story it tells without providing it the necessary support. [Full Review in Spanish]

Maud is just as dull and unimaginative as the film is, which is a shame, because the real-life figures in this fight were never boring.

It's disappointing that a movie made by women and starring some of the best working actresses tackling a large subject couldn't add more to the conversation.

So why am I so lukewarm on Suffragette? In short, it just doesn't add up.

The result is ultimately a string of events, not a work whose cinematic momentum builds up beyond the hackneyed feel of British period dramas and television shows. There is too much story in Suffragette, told in a direct, rather dull cinematic fashion.

For a movie about the breaking point of the British Suffragette movement that saw marches and demonstrations turn to vandalism and arson, Suffragette is hella boring.

It's a nexus writer Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady) relentlessly implies but never establishes.

Suffragette means well, but manages to do just about everything badly. Maybe, if we're very lucky, Ken Burns will get interested in making a mini-series about what women wanted.

What is the point of the silly, histrionic teatime drama Suffragette? Certainly not to focus on the actual suffering of the suffragettes, who a little more than 100 years ago were sent to prison and force-fed after a string of "terrorist" attacks.

As grey and lifeless as the lethargic pedestrians wandering through the London streets.

Fusing the civil rights picture with British miserablism, Sarah Gavron's grinding Suffragette offers very little room to breathe.
March 2, 2016
Suffragette barely delves into the inner workings of its political movement, opting instead for an admittedly sympathetic 'everywoman' protagonist.
February 19, 2016
Sarah Gavron's focus on one character helps lift the film above slogans and marches, and makes it more personal. But when the fight becomes more of a war we lack the attachment to the movement's biggest losses.
December 31, 2015
A very conventional and safe film about a very singular and brave event in the postvictorian era. [Full review in Spanish]
December 30, 2015
An astonishingly tedious drama...
December 29, 2015
Neither compellingly made or told, Suffragette has the burden of prestige without the substance to back it up.
December 23, 2015
'Sufragette' is a failed movie because it puts too much trust in the strenght of the story it's telling without giving it enough support. [Full Review in Spanish]
December 14, 2015
An OK movie, you can either watch it or not, it's not anything special. [Full review in Spanish]
December 2, 2015
Feels oddly perfunctory, despite valiant turns from Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter.

While the scenes of street violence and prison life are kinetic and harrowing, a strong narrative arc is lacking, and the characters remain underdeveloped.
