Rating: 4/5 -- Worth it for pairing of Garbo and Gilbert alone.

Chief fault with Christina is its lethargy. It is slow and ofttimes stilted. Full Review
Variety

S. N. Behrinan wrote for the picture some of the finest dialogue that has yet come out of Hollywood, and Rouben Mamoulian gave it a brilliant direction. Full Review

Rating: A- -- Decades later, Queen Christina remains one of Garbo's most poignant, touching, and enjoyable films, showing the Divine in all her glory. Full Review

[Garbo] turns her character into a living entity, extracts real emotion from the script's purple clumps, and glides through Mamoulian's winding camera movements with grace, wit and beauty. Full Review

It must be said that this film gives great pleasure to the eye. The usual Hollywood glitter is replaced by harmonies of light and shade exceptionally well handled. Full Review
