Rotten: Too slow, too dull. Redford lacked the danger of Fitzgerald's creation.
- Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN), Thursday, June 24, 2010
Great book crumy movie, they completely missed the plot. Redford was good though, as always.

Well appointed but ponderous version of classic tale. Redford and Farrow fit their parts well physically but lack chemistry, the sets are gorgeous but the film just sort of chugs along keeping its distance from the audience so when tradegy occurs its at a remove. Sam Waterson turns in a fine performance as tha narrator.
