Desson Thomson
Washington Post
The script's a plodder, and the acting's unbearably stilted. The movie's intentions are like the starry constellations that inspire the eponymous hero: out of reach. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
The time-traveling is a little awkward, and a mawkish turn of events feels forced and unnecessary. Full Review
Joe Leydon
Lofty ambitions and unaffected sincerity are not quite enough to sustain The Keeper: The Legend of Omar Khayyam, a reverentially pokey drama that plays less like a conventional movie than a lengthy series of hagiographic historical tableaux. Full Review
Jonathan Curiel
San Francisco Chronicle
Rough around the edges, it's still a formidable movie. Full Review
Kevin Crust
Los Angeles Times
There is nothing extraordinary about the filmmaking, but Mashayekh's old-fashioned commitment to his and co-writer Belle Avery's story creates an overall satisfying experience. Full Review
