Undeveloped characters and no clear narrative waste a fascinating story and profound theme. This is a monumental mess.
April 17, 2019
The Monuments Men is a buddy movie, an adventure film, and a throwback to less cynical times.

The Monuments Men feels like a monumentally wasted opportunity.
December 16, 2018
Clooney is trying to push the merit of the material a touch too much; a fact betrayed by the amount of times his character ventriloquises the film's two main morals.

The rare misfire from a helmer who usually evinces just as much self-assuredness behind the camera as he so easily embodies in front of it.
November 13, 2018
Clooney speeches and preaches nonstop throughout.
October 21, 2018
A monumental failure.
January 2, 2018
George Clooney's simplistic wartime art heist movie staggers between parody and sincerity, failing at both.

My main takeaway from Monuments Men is that sometimes not every nifty true oddity from history needs to be made into a movie.

It's when The Monuments Men tries to mix the funny and inspirational with the tragic reality of war that it really struggles.
August 17, 2017
This is a movie that never quite realized what it was supposed to be doing.

There's a reason The Monuments Men was taken from its holiday slot and moved to February. Somebody - Clooney perhaps - knew the picture just didn't have the goods. That it's dull and preachy, despite its fine cast.

Unfortunately, it doesn't take much for charming camaraderie to cross over into uncritical cronyism. Clooney could have used someone telling him to do a few more rewrites. If he's not careful he'll turn into a classier version of Adam Sandler.

This latest project from the Lake Como Vanity Project Yacht is all winky Ocean's 11 crap and way too many monologues from Sir George, whose film career has been coasting on alleged charm since Return of the Killer Tomatoes.
July 14, 2016
The movie's biggest sin is a complete and utter lack of dramatic tension.
June 21, 2016
It has its heart in the right place and Clooney does a technically proficient job, but there's no denying that it is a significant disappointment.

If you've ever doubted how thoroughly a poor score can wreck an otherwise perfectly acceptable motion picture, get thee to 'Monuments Men.'
June 16, 2016
'Monuments Men' is the vapidly-told story of the men who set out to thwart ol' Schicklgruber's (Hitler's father's real name) dastardly, top-to-bottom European art-ransack.
April 15, 2016
Plays like an outtake reel interspersed with scenes of real dramatic weight, making for one of the most uneven cinematic rides in recent memory.

The Monuments Men is okay, if you don't expect too much from it. It's a fine rainy-Saturday movie. But shouldn't we expect more from our art?
