Critic Reviews of "Ivanhoe"VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Ivanhoe is a great romantic adventure, mounted extravagantly, crammed with action, and emerges as a spectacular feast.Time OutJune 24, 2006
The dialogue and script are fatuously Americanised from Scott's original, but these chivalric Hollywood sagas still have a strange poetic quality about them.New York TimesMarch 25, 2006
As Ivanhoe, Robert Taylor does a good, sturdy, manly job and George Sanders is intriguingly fluid as the emotionally torn De Bois-Guilbert.TV GuideMarch 24, 2011
Luxe MGM historical ransacking, locationed to the nines, beautiful to look upon, but with energy lapses in the soggy script of Sir Walter Scott's epic classic.EmanuelLevy.ComMarch 25, 2009
By standrads of the 1950s, this is a passably entertaining period adventure, representing Hollywood's effort to fight the competition from the new and threatening medium of TV.DVDJournal.comApril 06, 2006
While Joan Fontaine was one of MGM's marquee beauties, she must have rued the day that Ivanhoe's other damsel went to Elizabeth Taylor, who steals Fontaine's thunder with her eyes alone.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsAugust 22, 2005
It's an entertaining medieval costume epic that presents an inaccurate version of literature and history.Decent Films GuideApril 04, 2005
In a way the next best thing to the real Arthurian classic that Hollywood never made, with the added plus of Robin Hood and his Merry Men (if only Warrender weren't so stiff).Not Coming to a Theater Near YouJanuary 17, 2005
In this ostensibly epic tale of knights and maidens, chivalry and swordfights, there is not a single actor who does not appear surpassingly boredGoatdog's MoviesJanuary 16, 2005
I could do while watching it was giggle.
