Critic Reviews of "Agora"indieWireOctober 31, 2012
A humorless feminist toga epic that fascinates with its intelligence and its abhorrence of the birth of Judeo/Christian culture.Miami HeraldJanuary 31, 2011
All brain, no heart.Chicago ReaderJanuary 03, 2011
This Spanish-produced period drama is pretty dreadful: the drama is torpid, the astronomy lessons pedantic, and the spear-and-sandal production values flat-out cheesy.Film.comSeptember 21, 2010
Although the movie's history is spotty, its dialogue is sometimes clunky, and time frames are telescoped, its overall impact packs a powerful punch.Detroit NewsAugust 13, 2010
Manages to mix philosophy, history, hysteria and a love triangle and still be something of a bore.Minneapolis Star TribuneJuly 29, 2010
Some may consider "Agora" sound history, others may label it heresy, but I call it thumping good drama.Movie TalkAugust 01, 2012
Agora is intelligent, stirring and, as the cultural devastation wrought by religious zealots plays out on screen, heartbreaking.Flicks.co.nzJune 21, 2011
Filled with literal and metaphysical stone throwing between the religions, Agora is saddled with a muddy narrative and too many blokes who look alike.ScreenwizeJanuary 12, 2011
Ambitious, sprawling and melodramatic, this sword-and-sandal epic lacks subtlety and struggles to provide much charm - ultimately dissolving into a rather obvious morality tale about the rise of fundamentalism.Uruguay TotalDecember 23, 2010
Un digno retrato de época - no exento de ciertas simplificaciones - que logra recuperar con interés un período histórico y una figura olvidada como la de Hipatia (buena labor de Rachel Weisz).Cinema AutopsyNovember 24, 2010
Agora could have been a powerfully subversive feminist film, but while it does have its moments it never truly lives up to its ambitious potential.MovieTime, ABC Radio NationalNovember 18, 2010
Somehow sessions of platonic inquiry interleaved with scenes of battle and riots do not make for a very gripping film. This one is sludgy in the extreme.
