Critic Reviews for The Lightkeepers
However sad the dearth of substantial film roles for older actors, it's far sadder to watch them partake in anemic affairs like "The Lightkeepers," a lifeless period romance of the cutesy-cantankerous persuasion.
Nothing if not consistent, Adams again shows an uncanny knack for marshaling ordinarily good actors into static, gauzy compositions and having them declaim dialogue like "By thunder!" and "If I'm confectionary with my women, drown me!"
While it's a feature of commendable morality and casting accomplishment, the filmmaker once again submits a bloodless viewing experience slavish to retro dramatic ambiance, while lacking the directorial chops required to keep it all awake.
The Lightkeepers is bafflingly lame in execution: A number of cuts don't match, and the entire film has a herky-jerky stop-and-start lack of momentum.
Audience Reviews for The Lightkeepers
Boy. I never thought that Richard Dreyfuss could ruin a movie, but this one he did. He was absolutely the wrong person for this part. His acting abilitles were terrible, over-the-top, and laughable. The surrounding cast was pretty good, however, and the story was nice. Too bad....
