Critic Reviews for The Liberator

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (16)

  • "The Liberator" shoehorns the epic life of early 19th-century South American revolutionary Simn Bolivar into two hours of intermittently powerful cinema.

    October 3, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Simple enough for audiences who know nothing about Bolvar, poetic enough for those who grew up reading about El Libertador in school books.

  • Arvelo, a Venezuelan like Bolivar, touches many of the essential bases in Bolivar's story. But, perhaps inevitably, he is only able to achieve little more than mere touches.

    October 2, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • As if the film's ostentatious aerial vistas, merely functional scene-writing and score weren't distracting enough, Mr. Sexton's dialogue freezes dead any simulation of the period with tone-deaf lines amid Bolvar's impassioned rhetoric.

    October 2, 2014 | Full Review…
  • How disappointing that a movie about challenging authority should be such a slave to convention.

    October 2, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Without sufficient context, the films swirls grandly but without making much meaning.

  • Stylistically it's accomplished and Ramirez's performance comes close to redeeming the whole thing all on its own. But when we step away, we can see how the execution is all too familiar.

    July 17, 2020 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Action and adventure, life and death, love and betrayal, and at the heart of it all, a man who dreamed beyond himself and fought for those dreams. Sweeping, epic, masterful.
