Critic Reviews for The Liberator

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (15)

  • "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.

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