What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Diane de Beer Magical, mystical, musical...
Mariana Malan Niks in die rolprent gryp jou werklike aan nie.
Leon van Nierop Across The Universe is a glorious, colourful, inspiring, provocative mess. It is like going to an over-the-top wedding of somebody you don't know at all and participating in a feast, without boundaries
Jean Barker Across the Universe is really just a series of music videos made by the same person and linked by cheesy dialogue.
Stella Papamichael The love story really takes second place to a wild carnival of sights and sounds.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Here is a bold, beautiful, visually enchanting musical where we walk into the theater humming the songs.
Jason Anderson Maybe it's the presence of so many well-loved songs or the sincerity of the singers but something about Across the Universe makes it easier to forgive (and even savour) the many florid excesses.
James Berardinelli I have heard Across the Universe being referred to as this generation's Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and I can't refute the argument.
Peter Travers To call it trippy would be an understatement. Your head might explode. Just don't accuse Taymor of playing it safe.
Fun for those who will get all of the references, and some individual moments are brilliantly conceived and executed.
Tomatometer Psychedelic musical numbers can't mask the clichéd love story.
