Critic Reviews of "Cymbeline"New YorkerMarch 23, 2015
What we get-a bitty and begrimed romance-has a lyrical sway of its own, and, even if some of the cast seem lost in the lines, Hawke returns to save the day, and the movie.RogerEbert.comMarch 13, 2015
A conceptually weak and dramatically muddled mess that has acquired a game and good cast and then given them precious little to do.Philadelphia InquirerMarch 13, 2015
If too many filmmakers try to amp up the excitement in Shakespeare with movie magic, Almereyda goes to the opposite extreme in Cymbeline.Los Angeles TimesMarch 12, 2015
A mash-up of social media shortcomings and Shakespearean tragedy that becomes as much a tale of cinematic ambition gone awry as anything the Bard intended.Entertainment WeeklyMarch 12, 2015
The film has moments of real wit and stylish brutality, but its nods to modernity (motorcycles, iPads, Google) just feel like self-conscious stunts.New York TimesMarch 12, 2015
"Cymbeline" has been branded a tragedy, a tragicomedy and a romance, and Mr. Almereyda embraces all three categories. The movie is by turns grim, grimly amusing and romantic, sometimes at once.Epoch TimesMay 20, 2016
Of course, Ed Harris as a leather-jacket-wearing biker monarch blasting away with an assault rifle gives Almereyda a solid base to work from.The Film StageMarch 12, 2016
Almereyda is back at it fourteen years later with Cymbeline, a dramatically clunkier Shakespeare play, both in and of itself and for the challenges it presents to a modern adaptation.FILMINK (Australia)May 27, 2015
Cymbeline's familiar Elizabethan tropes do not translate well to a modern context, nor do the constant references to 'Caesar' or 'Romans.'The Blu SpotMay 17, 2015
Michael Almereyda's modernized adaptation of Cymbeline comes to the screen with a number of flaws, including an overstuffed plot and a questionable structure.Cinemalogue.comMay 01, 2015
... strips down the Bard's narrative and ramps up the sex and violence, which is fine, but as with other such projects, the anachronistic dialogue is awkward and the storytelling is muddled and convoluted.Examiner.comMarch 14, 2015
Almereyda never gives us a reason why this particular Shakespeare story is relevant for today, and thus worthy of being retold. Perhaps he watched too much Sons of Anarchy?
