More Info:
  • Roger Ebert

    Here is a bold, beautiful, visually enchanting musical where we walk INTO the theater humming the songs.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    This much is inarguable: In the more than two flamboyant hours of Across the Universe, Julie Taymor doesn't cheat us for a single second.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • William Arnold

    The film is a strange, nostalgic, suitably outrageous ode to a very real revolution in consciousness.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Ian Nathan

    A load of kids singing Beatles tunes? You better believe it.

    Empire Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    Somewhere around its midpoint, Across the Universe captured my heart, and I realized that falling in love with a movie is like falling in love with another person. Imperfections, however glaring, become endearing quirks once you’ve tumbled.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Jessica Reaves

    If you're a Beatles fan who's not offended by people taking serious liberties with the arrangements of your favorite songs, the unrepentantly exuberant and seriously tuneful Across the Universe is pretty much a sure thing.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Across the Universe can't achieve the transcendence and exhilaration musicals strive for, but it often generates a singular kind of magic you've never experienced before.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    While the songs are recycled, Across the Universe stands out just by existing.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    It's a funny thing: On the one hand, you fault Taymor for going out of her way to create some of the more disposable sequences. On the other, you can forgive her: Who wouldn't get carried away given the opportunity she has been given here to play with one of the world's greatest song catalogs?

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    All you need is love -- for the Beatles, for psychedelic visuals, for ideas about being young in the ‘60s -- to fully enjoy Across the Universe.

    Variety Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    It's all very clever and thought-through, but all the allusions don't much bolster the bland central romance or the paper-thin treatment of '60s social issues.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Taymor's flower-powery phantasmagoria is ambitious but ultimately tiresome.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    To call it trippy would be an understatement. Your head might explode. Just don't accuse Taymor of playing it safe.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    Julie Taymor says the idea for her Across the Universe was "to create an original musical using only the songs of the Beatles." That's like saying you're going to create a new element using only gold.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    An interesting failure, not a fascinating one.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    A bizarre counterculture jukebox musical.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    And yes, that is Salma Hayek in the chorus line of sexily sinister nurses, perhaps repaying Taymor for lending her dramatic credibility with "Frida."

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    While style trumps substance, something in the way this '60s tribute moves attracts us.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Disarming, discombobulating and disappointing.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Stephen Farber

    Julie Taymor's visual gifts are very much in evidence in Across the Universe, an ambitious, only partly successful attempt to reinvigorate the musical genre.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Elements of Across the Universe are shockingly awful and the film lasts at least 30 minutes past the bearable stage. But if you like the Beatles and the idea of hearing about 20 covers of their work fills you with a perverse joy, this may be the movie for you.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Mark Bell

    The film does not know what it is, tonally changing within and between structural acts.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    Across the Universe, which filters the cultural revolt through a blizzard of early Beatles songs, ends up both reductive and smugly condescending to a presumptively know-nothing audience.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Goofy, pompous, annoyingly boomer-myopic Fab Four musical.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    A yawn and most unforgivably features some appalling arrangements of the Beatles' best-loved songs.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Hobbled by its vaguely insulting comic-book version of the '60s and by a humorlessness that can only come from talented people convinced they're creating work for the ages.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    If a bullet hadn't killed John Lennon, this Beatles-scored musical might have.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    Director Julie Taymor's gargantuan all-Beatles-songs musical is that rarest of animals, the perfect disaster that fulfills expectations by defying them.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Across the Universe will have ardent defenders, but in the long run, it will do nothing to infuse life into the current mini-revival of movie musicals and is as soft-headed as the wishful refrain “All You Need Is Love.” Maybe that works in real life but not in the movies, sister.
