Extremely poorly done----It was unbelievable---I did not believe she had a difficult life, that her employer was gruff and rough around the edges, nor that they truly loved each other. No chemistry, little emotion, poor acting. I truly loved the prior two verions of Jany Eyre--this one should not have been made.

Wonderful acting, but unfortunately it's still Jane Eyre.

Very poorly done. If you want a better rendition of Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre you should watch the 1973 version.

This movie is so dark. The book has some very sad moments, but also many happy and joyful events. I do not believe that movies need to be exactly like the book they are based on to be good. The changes made were no improvement. The book has romance, depth, wit and passion. There is absolutely no chemistry between the actors playing Jane and Rochester.

Beautiful photgraphy and scenery and true to the storyline, however the romantic chemistry is lacking. Other productions have gotten the chemistry right but missed on everything else. I hope at some future point it will all come together in yet another re-make of this classic.

Fukunaga has made his Jane Eyre an intimate, thoughtful epic, anchored by strong lead performances and the gorgeous, moody 100-shades-of-gray cinematography of Adriano Goldman. Full Review

A splendid example of how to tackle the daunting duty of turning a beloved work of classic literature into a movie. Neither a radical updating nor a stiff exercise in middlebrow cultural respectability, Mr. Fukunaga's film tells its venerable tale with lively vigor and an astute sense of emotional detail.

Washington Post
While qualifying as the most gorgeously appointed and finely detailed version of the novel so far, still lacks the element of essential fire to make it come fully, even subversively, to life. Full Review

The look of this version may be the finest of the 27 Jane Eyre film and television re-tellings. Full Review

Wasikowska's Jane is as watchful as only a damaged soul can be, and, when challenged, frighteningly fast. Full Review
