  • There’s simply too much going on here — too many subplots, too many symbols, too many expendable characters — and certain interesting threads aren’t able to develop fully. show more

  • The result is no masterpiece, but neither is it a disaster. In its steady great-books way, the film is often truthful and moving. show more

  • Despite the solid work of cast and crew, the film dawdles and fails to justify its two-and-a-half-hour running time. Midnight reaches its tender conclusion without ever achieving the emotional or dramatic heft that such an epic tale requires. show more
