Rating: 4/5 -- Neil Jordan uses very broad and movie-ish strokes to paint his portrait of the busy, eponymous hero. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Michael Collins really is Irish history told on a bold, sweeping, comprehensible scale; in a sense, it's almost Irish history Hollywoodised. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- While the film is unflinching in its depiction of the brutality of both the English and the Irish, Jordan pointedly dissociates his hero from any actual ugliness. Full Review
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
Rating: 3/5 -- Bad history perhaps, but Neeson's performance borders on the brilliant. Full Review
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: 8/10 -- A bold and rousing historical epic.
