Reviews

Annlee Ellingson Los Angeles Times | November 10, 2013

It is skillfully made and adeptly performed; even so it doesn't really add anything to the canon.

Mary Houlihan Chicago Sun-Times | November 08, 2013

This Great Expectations is an absorbing addition to the roster of Dickens films that continues our 21st-century fascination with the worlds created by a 19th-century storyteller.

Barbara VanDenburgh Arizona Republic | November 08, 2013

Director Mike Newell approaches the sprawling bildungsroman with a stiff formalism, sacrificing all cinematic excitement for the sake of exalting great performances.

David Hiltbrand Philadelphia Inquirer | November 08, 2013

Honors the source while making some small but significant alterations.

Kyle Smith New York Post | November 07, 2013

An honorable, sober but completely unnecessary take on the Dickens novel, "Great Expectations" serves as a fine introduction to the story but won't excite those familiar with previous versions.

Michael O'Sullivan Washington Post | November 07, 2013

It's a welcome and faithful addition to the canon, despite some tweaks.

Moira MacDonald Seattle Times | November 07, 2013

It's good, not great - but, for some of us, expectations will be met, and then some.
