Critic Reviews of "Michael Collins"TIME MagazineMarch 28, 2010
There are pain and honor in [Neeson's] performance, and they constantly rise up to redeem a film that is less probing, less thoughtful than its director's claims and aspirations for it.VarietyJanuary 23, 2009
Intelligent, enormously accomplished and seriously problematic, Neil Jordan's ambitious account of the activities of arguably the central figure in Ireland's painful, bloody fight for independence from the British Empire has a great deal to offer...Time OutJune 24, 2006
This is Jordan's most ambitious and satisfying movie -- a thriller with a real sense of scale, pace, menace and moral import.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Played with great magnetism and triumphant bluster by Liam Neeson, the film's Michael Collins easily lives up to his nickname.San Francisco ChronicleJune 18, 2002
Handsome, but curiously cold, considering the emotional heat of Anglo-Irish matters. Fortunately, Liam Neeson commands almost every frame.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 14, 2001
Jordan always had 6-foot-4 Liam Neeson in mind to play the man they called "the Big Fellow," and it's more than size that makes Neeson fit the part of a leader known for his "cloudburst temperament."Times (UK)March 03, 2016
[Neeson] is superb as the principled, steely yet romantic action hero of Neil Jordan's film, which has been re-released for the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising in 1916.Film4March 28, 2010
Bad history perhaps, but Neeson's performance borders on the brilliant.TV GuideMarch 28, 2010
While the film is unflinching in its depiction of the brutality of both the English and the Irish, Jordan pointedly dissociates his hero from any actual ugliness.eFilmCritic.comJuly 18, 2008
Neil Jordan uses very broad and movie-ish strokes to paint his portrait of the busy, eponymous hero.ColeSmithey.comJune 01, 2007
Be sure to watch "The Wind That Shakes The Barley" if you watch "Michael Collins"Fantastica DailyJanuary 23, 2006
A bold and rousing historical epic.
