Critic Reviews for The Dig

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (22) | Rotten (3)

  • It's an intimate film that moves at the deliberate, careful pace of an excavation and, in so doing, uncovers a few gems along the way.

    January 15, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "The Dig" is not a film for armchair archaeologists. It is more of a diversion for viewers looking for handsomely mounted period British melodrama.

    January 14, 2021 | Full Review…
  • "The Dig" is about the yearning, so human and, yes, so elusive and so futile, to fix the past so that it can be preserved.

    January 14, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Delivers strong performances - from Ralph Fiennes and Carey Mulligan in particular - and top-level craft, but with an undercurrent of real emotion which sensitively conveys the fragility of lives and time.

    January 14, 2021 | Full Review…
  • It rather poetically places the turbulence of the then-present conflict within the perspective of the millennia of human experience that have come before.

    January 14, 2021 | Full Review…
  • The line it draws between the earthy and the ethereal stays with you: it's a well-timed double dose of consolation and escape.

    January 13, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
