Critic Reviews of "The Last Tycoon"VarietyApril 10, 2007
Producer Sam Spiegel's contribution is admirable, but Elia Kazan's direction of the Pinter plot seems unfocussed though craftsmanlike. Robert De Niro's performance as the inscrutable boy-wonder of films is mildly intriguing.Time OutJune 24, 2006
De Niro proves again how well he can carry a part, and is particularly good in scenes dealing with the day-to-day business of movie-making.New York TimesMay 09, 2005
The movie is full of echoes. We watch it as if at a far remove from what's happening, but that too is appropriate: Fitzgerald was writing history as it happened.Chicago ReaderJanuary 01, 2000
Elia Kazan now admits that he directed this adaptation, his last Hollywood film, for the money. Unfortunately, it looks it.The Film StageJuly 11, 2016
The Last Tycoon is an intriguing entry to the period gangster genre that depicts the weight of triad influence in 1930s Shanghai at the cusp of war with an invading Japan.Combustible CelluloidSeptember 26, 2008
Kazan's rigid directing kills the spontaneity of nearly every cast member.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsDecember 27, 2007
It's a film that takes Hollywood too seriously and seems to worship with piety at its altar, but was too awkwardly presented to mean much.TV GuideApril 10, 2007
Fitzgerald's unfinished novel transfers awkwardly to the screen but is saved from oblivion by that always-fascinating actor De Niro.Apollo GuideAugust 23, 2004
Out of place and not quite interesting enough to hold our attention, which is a disappointment, because it has many of the elements that can make for greatness.Cinema em CenaFebruary 05, 2004
Interessante na maior parte do tempo, o filme acaba sendo prejudicado pela fraca subtrama romântica e pelo final medíocre (adaptar um livro inacabado pode ser má idéia).Spirituality and PracticeJanuary 18, 2004
An exquisite screen interpretation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's unfinished novel on Hollywood during the ThirtiesFilmcritic.comNovember 12, 2003
