The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Female-forward and class-conscious, allegorical and adventurous, Byzantium is almost the anti-Batman. Full Review
Bruce Ingram
Chicago Sun-Times
It takes a while, but the old-fashioned pleasure of watching a well-told story unfold eventually becomes the chief satisfaction in Byzantium, though there are other things to enjoy as well. Full Review
David Edelstein
New York Magazine (Vulture)
The movie is gorgeous, mesmerizing, poetic; the lyricism actually heightened by harsh jets of gore. Full Review
Ed Gonzalez
Slant Magazine
Forlorn depictions of love and death may dignify Neil Jordan's film, but narrative withholding ultimately drives a stake into its unmistakable heart. Full Review
Eric Kohn
By the standards of Jordan's earlier films, "Byzantium" is unquestionably a minor achievement, but its technical specs help flesh out a thick environment that elevates the proceedings to a lyrical plane. Full Review
