TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: The Last Face's noble intentions are nowhere near enough to carry a fundamentally misguided story that arguably demeans the demographic it wants to defend.

Movie Info

The Last Face centers around a love affair between Dr. Wren Petersen (Academy Award (R) winner, Charlize Theron), the director of an international aid organization and Dr. Miguel Leon (Academy Award (R) winner, Javier Bardem), a relief-aid doctor. Set against the devastating backdrop of war-torn Liberia, Miguel and Wren must find a way to keep their relationship alive in extraordinarily difficult conditions battling their mutual passion for the value of life matched by the intensity of their diametrically opposed opinions on how best to solve the conflict that surrounds them. Directed by Two-time Academy Award (R) winner Sean Penn, The Last Face also stars Primetime Emmy (R) nominee Jared Harris, and celebrated French actors Jean Reno and Adèle Exarchopoulos.

All Critics (41) | Top Critics (11)

Rarely has a movie felt so simultaneously inane, stultifying and offensive.

Top Critic

Sean Penn turns African strife into a two-hour perfume commercial with The Last Face, veering between gauzy impressionism and shrieky melodrama with his latest directorial effort.

July 28, 2017 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

As well meaning as this movie is, it is also a turgid, muddled one.

July 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Characters are undeveloped, dialogue is platitudinous and insincere, and even the leading roles are one-dimensional.

July 27, 2017 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

The Last Face spends so much time on the on-again, off-again romance between Bardem's Miguel and Theron's Wren, the African victims are all but nameless and faceless backdrops.

July 27, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

The experience of watching "The Last Face" is of watching scenes in which the wrong people and problems are consistently the focus of the action.
