Critic Reviews for Ardor
By the time we reached the climactic and fantastically over-the-top showdown, I realized that while the characters were indeed trying to corner the market on smoldering glances, faux-Shakespearean proclamations and in-your-face symbolism.
As good-looking as the movie and its stars are, "Ardor," whose title refers to a literal state of burning, never manages to catch fire.
"Ardor" lacks tension, maybe because the actors are playing archetypes: Little is said, and there are few surprises.
Here is a movie that ends with a can't-miss scenario - a siege on a farmhouse in which the heroes are vastly outnumbered and outgunned - yet still fails to ever quicken your pulse.
A densely atmospheric, Sergio Leone-steeped western that ultimately proves too reverential for its own good.
