Critic Reviews for The Liberator

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (13)

"The Liberator" shoehorns the epic life of early 19th-century South American revolutionary Simón Bolivar into two hours of intermittently powerful cinema.

October 3, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Simple enough for audiences who know nothing about Bolívar, poetic enough for those who grew up reading about El Libertador in school books.

Arvelo, a Venezuelan like Bolivar, touches many of the essential bases in Bolivar's story. But, perhaps inevitably, he is only able to achieve little more than mere touches.

October 2, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

As if the film's ostentatious aerial vistas, merely functional scene-writing and score weren't distracting enough, Mr. Sexton's dialogue freezes dead any simulation of the period with tone-deaf lines amid Bolívar's impassioned rhetoric.

October 2, 2014 | Full Review…

How disappointing that a movie about challenging authority should be such a slave to convention.

October 2, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Without sufficient context, the films swirls grandly but without making much meaning.
