    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Something kicks in about two thirds in, and Far and Away becomes exhilarating. [22 May 1992] show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    The old seems old - but the result isn't unpleasant, and moviegoers just might go for it. [22 May 1992] show more

    Julie Salamon Wall Street Journal

    Odd as it seems for a film built on such a grand scale, sweet is the operative word here, and that's not meant as an insult. [29 May 1992] show more

    Gene Siskel Chicago Tribune

    Far and Away, a mildly old-fashioned romantic melodrama that has as many charming moments as embarrassing ones. Much of the charm is supplied by the earnest performances of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. [22 May 1992] show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Far and Away is a movie that joins astonishing visual splendor with a story so simple-minded it seems intended for adolescents. show more

    Far and Away plays like a theme park attraction: viscerally exciting but detached, impersonal and dull. show more

    Jay Carr Boston Globe

    Far and Away is a throwback to the handsome but stodgy historical romances Hollywood used to make, and it can at least be said that it's more ambitious than most of what we'll see this summer. [22 May 1992] show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    It's just a shrunken case of large-screen aspirations wedded to a small-screen mentality. [22 May 1992] show more

    Austin Chronicle

    There is a richness to Far and Away that seems wasted on its simple love story straight out of "It Happened One Night." show more
