Critic Reviews for The Doctor and the Devils

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

It is unredeemed, dreary, boring, gloomy dreck unilluminated by even the slightest fugitive moment of inspiration or ambition.

Feels as though the plot could do even more with its material.

A dull, uninspired—albeit aesthetically handsome—experience.

...bloated, lifeless, and toe-tagged. D.O.A.

Audience Reviews for The Doctor and the Devils

Okay, yeah, there's a good cast, and moments of entertainment here... but this is an old story that has been told in too many films already. I was just bored, it brought nothing new to the old tale.
