Rating: 3/4 -- Played with great magnetism and triumphant bluster by Liam Neeson, the film's Michael Collins easily lives up to his nickname.
New York Times
There are pain and honor in [Neeson's] performance, and they constantly rise up to redeem a film that is less probing, less thoughtful than its director's claims and aspirations for it. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Bad history perhaps, but Neeson's performance borders on the brilliant. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- [Neeson] is superb as the principled, steely yet romantic action hero of Neil Jordan's film, which has been re-released for the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising in 1916. Full Review
Rating: 8/10 -- A bold and rousing historical epic.
Intelligent, enormously accomplished and seriously problematic, Neil Jordan's ambitious account of the activities of arguably the central figure in Ireland's painful, bloody fight for independence from the British Empire has a great deal to offer...
This is Jordan's most ambitious and satisfying movie -- a thriller with a real sense of scale, pace, menace and moral import. Full Review
