Critic Reviews for The Liberator

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (11)

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

Oct 3, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Simple enough for audiences who know nothing about Bolívar, poetic enough for those who grew up reading about El Libertador in school books.

Oct 2, 2014 | Full Review…

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.

Oct 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 Bolívar's impassioned rhetoric.

Oct 2, 2014 | Full Review…

How disappointing that a movie about challenging authority should be such a slave to convention.

Oct 2, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Édgar Ramírez is electifying as Simón Bolívar, the Venezuelan land owner turned warrior. But even Ramírez cannot liberate this movie from a clichéd script.
