Critic Reviews of "Evita"USA TodayJanuary 01, 2000
With one of the most dazzling screen chassis in years, Evita is definitely worth a look -- maybe even two. But don't look under the hood.Antagony & EcstasyApril 27, 2015
No matter how great all the constituent elements were, [it couldn't] survive the kind of stiff, wholly artificial and forced performance that Madonna gives.Groucho ReviewsJuly 02, 2012
A pretty much ideal big-screen adaptation of the material, which becomes convincingly cinematic. [Blu-ray]Movie MetropolisJune 25, 2012
Webber's music is hauntingly original and effective, while Rice's lyrics manage to convey the information that's missing without a standard narrative and scenic construction, while also incorporating a constant sense of interpretation.Creative LoafingJune 19, 2012
At a time when songs showcased in movies were being shot as MTV music videos, leave it to director Alan Parker (The Commitments, Fame) to offer a full-blooded musical with epic elegance on its mind.eFilmCritic.comJuly 30, 2007
I doubt any director could have made a good movie from Andrew Lloyd Webber's baffling and shallow musical.Arkansas Democrat-GazetteJanuary 08, 2005
It is quite possible to hate Cats and deplore Sex and still enjoy this movie.Cinema SightSeptember 05, 2004
What makes "Evita" so powerful is its ability to convey complex emotions through its music.Lawrence Journal-WorldJune 07, 2003

Don't cry for me Argentina, no please cry for me if I have to watch this one again.Flipside Movie EmporiumJanuary 09, 2003
Alan Parker has a knack for musicals... even ones starring Madonna.
