Will Shakespeare, whose words shine on, bright and brave, Is turning o'er with laughter in his grave.ReelViewsOctober 30, 2011
File this one in the category of entertaining historical fiction. There are facts here, but one must possess more than a passing familiarity with history to be able to spot them.Christian Science MonitorOctober 29, 2011
John Orloff's screenplay could have used a rewrite by de Vere -- or whomever.TheWrapOctober 28, 2011
Knowing that non-Masterpiece Theater audiences will grow fidgety over this sort of thing, Emmerich and Orloff throw in plenty of sword-fighting, bear-baiting, and bodice-ripping.Houston ChronicleOctober 28, 2011
The digitally wrought period settings are simply gorgeous.Chicago ReaderOctober 28, 2011

...it's ultimately clear that Emmerich should stick to the larger-than-life, blockbuster fare with which he's become associated.Big HollywoodJune 30, 2013

Bad history beautifully done.TheShiznit.co.ukSeptember 28, 2012
Don't let the fact that it's different - or unadulterated bullshit of the highest order - put you off a story that, in truth, is more interesting than it is wholly entertaining or accurate.Examiner.comSeptember 18, 2012
It may be one of the signs of the apocalypse, but thanks to a well-written screenplay, spot-on performances, and a fantastic production design, Emmerich has finally made a great film.
