Diane de Beer
Natasha Senjanovic Engaging parable on religious intolerance
Barbera Goslawski Featuring striking panoramas and diligently orchestrated battle scenes, Agora is a feast for the eyes.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert This is a movie about ideas, a drama based on the ancient war between science and superstition.
Jason Anderson As philosopher and astronomer Hypatia, Weisz gamely copes with the destruction of her beloved library but Amenabar’s efforts to align the era’s religious conflicts and culture wars with those of our own become thuddingly obvious, especially once the old-school brio of Agora’s first hour has gone the way of the Roman Empire.
Tomatometer Noble goals and a gripping performance from Rachel Weisz can't save Agora from its muddled script, uneven acting, and choppy editing.
