Review by
The filmmakers don't have the nerve for a serious consideration of trauma, vengeance, and forgiveness.
Review by
The critical problems are an overbusy time-jumping script and reliance on the conventions of the trauma drama - flashbacks, fragmentation, distorted time and space - that prove more a barrier than a window into the character's inner lives.
Review by
Beautifully acted, The Railway Man is profoundly moving, and yet, somehow, its sentimental ending manages to be both unearned and predictable.
Review by
Why does the movie leave one cold?
Review by
The quality of mercy isn't just strained in The Railway Man, it's measured out by the teaspoonful.
Review by
The truth of what happened to him is devastating; the truth of how he found forgiveness in his soul is astonishing.
Review by
A consistently fine actor, Firth does marvelous work here, as Lomax must balance the demons of his past with the specter of forgiveness.
Review by
"The Railway Man" is a polished locomotive that never builds up steam or deviates from its timetable.
Review by
Firth and Kidman are both up for the challenge, complementing the compelling story with measured and memorable performances.
Review by
A prestige film that sometimes feels more like a history assignment than entertainment.
Review by
Makes its targets clear: redemption, love, healing, handkerchiefs.
Review by
The story, based on Lomax's memoir, is compelling. Jonathan Teplitzky's insipid screen version doesn't do the rich material justice.
Review by
Throughout, Firth compellingly plays a man struggling to make sense of the ordeal that his life has become. Too often, though, you can feel the movie struggling right along with him.
Review by
It's a good, slick and well-intentioned film that wants so hard to be an important one that the slight feeling of letdown it leaves is magnified.
Review by
The cast is excellent and the screenplay, by Frank Cottrell Boyce and Andy Paterson, is delicately attuned to the emotional cost of war and the terrible struggle to be healed.
Review by
[It] has many problems but also has Colin Firth ...
Review by
A morally admirable but dramatically inert case of high-minded reconciliation ...
Review by
Firth is very good at playing racked men of high principle.
Review by
Throughout his career, Firth repeatedly has proven himself to be a master at steadily revealing his characters, and the way his Lomax eventually reclaims his identity before enjoying some redemption is gently stirring.
Review by
In the end, for a movie about such a grim and grotesque chapter in history "The Railway Man" commits the most improbable sin of all. It's dull.
