It just misses being a masterpiece.

Of the acting of Theda Bara this only can be said. She has invested the character with a potency that makes one forget the film part of the business. This Carmen is not the opera Carmen; it is the living realisation of Merimee's original heroine.

The fight between Carmen and another girl in the factory is remarkably realistic -- and apparently exceedingly painful to the girl assigned to the part.

July 24, 2020 | Full Review…

This second Carmen is an example of excellent motion picture photography, buti ts scenario... is loose and vague, and Miss Bara seems very mechanically seductive when compared, as she must be, with Geraldine Farrar.

July 24, 2020 | Full Review…

Not a single detail which contributes to realism has been neglected. Thrill follows thrill in endless procession.

September 4, 2020 | Full Review…

In fact, the scenes throughout, considered solely as scenes, are handled with much skill, but there is a great deal to be desired in the presentation of the story. Much of the scenario is murky.
