I don't understand why this movie should get such bad reviews by critics when it is quite a fine mainstream film of an important novel by a prominent 19th-century French writer. Instead, critics seem to much prefer Woody Allen's To Rome with Love that I thought was a bit mediocre, despite the fact that Rome is one of the cities that I consider to be my second home.

A flavorless literary adaptation sunk by a lead actor, screenwriter and co-directors that are all out of their depth. Full Review
New York Daily News
Though gorgeous to look at, the first feature from Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod has an undeniable void at its very center: an utterly blank leading man. Full Review
It's just that Pattinson's performance is so enervated that his Georges Duroy comes across as something of a cipher. He's not quite alive, yet also clearly not dead, given the amount of sex he has. He's undead, or at least uninteresting. Full Review
On the whole Bel Ami is highly watchable. Full Review

What distinguishes Pattinson in the role is the sense he conveys of someone roiling and churning beneath a surface that is almost, but not quite, calm. Full Review
