'Napoleon' Movie Reviews
As of the moment of writing, 'Napoleon' currently has an overall Rotten Tomatoes score of 79% and a Metacritic score of 70. The film is praised for Joaquin Phoenix's and Vanessa Kirby's performances, excellent cinematography, and robustly choreographed combat sequences. On the other hand, 'Napoleon' is also criticized for its long runtime and scale.
Peter Bradshaw from The Guardian said:
"Phoenix is the key to it all: a performance as robust as the glass of burgundy he knocks back: preening, brooding, seething and triumphing."
Ross Bonaime from Collider said:
"Napoleon is a grand film, both in terms of Scott creating a story with a size we’ve rarely seen from him, and the bold, large choices made by a completely game Phoenix."
Alonso Duralde from The Film Verdict said:
"The film’s epic nature embraces not only size and scope but also the exquisite craftsmanship on display, from the detail work of Janty Yates and Dave Crossman’s costumes to cinematographer Dariusz Wolski’s ability to differentiate a successful battle from a disastrous one simply through his lighting choices."
Brian Tallerico from RogerEbert.com said:
"Say what you will about Scott’s most divisive movies—they’re usually big swings with big ideas. What’s so disheartening about “Napoleon” is how small it ultimately feels."
David Rooney from The Hollywood Reporter said:
"For all its brawn and atmosphere and robustly choreographed combat, this is a distended historical tapestry too sprawling to remain compelling, particularly when its focus veers away from the central couple."
As the curtain rises on November 22, 2023, audiences worldwide eagerly await Ridley Scott's Napoleon. With a stellar cast, a nuanced narrative, and Scott's directorial finesse, the film is poised to make a significant mark in the genre of historical dramas.
