Critic Reviews for The Agent

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (4)

  • As a piece of small-scale British filmmaking it's an interesting enough diversion.

    September 18, 2009
  • A quite unsexy subject handled quite adeptly, with pretty decent performances.

  • Beck does his best, and the dialogue crackles pleasantly, but he's a caricature: a lying, cheating smear of ordure who doesn't even like books. But his sin is worse than that - it's fiction's biggest. He's boring.

  • The Agent never really transcends its roots as a two-hander for the stage, but the director Lesley Manning does a good job of keeping things moving and production values are top notch.

  • I found something a little verbose and stagey in this story in movie form.

  • The advances up for grabs date the script instantly to a jollier time for publishing, but it's more of a bummer that Lesley Manning's direction is of the plonk-the-camera-anywhere variety.

  • Lesley Manning's film never shakes off its theatrical roots but still manages to be sharp, funny and engrossing.

  • A labour of love and principle, right down to the uncommerical ending, its message does lodge in the mind.
