Critic Reviews of "The Legend of Bagger Vance"New York Magazine/VultureMay 21, 2001
Another lusciously produced, emotionally clammy Redford enterprise -- forced, phony mythmaking filled with tinged sunsets and full moons.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
It handles a sports movie the way Billie Holiday handled a trashy song, by finding the love and pain beneath the story.Boston GlobeJanuary 01, 2000
It offers pleasures of a kind that fewer and fewer films even seem to remember, much less aspire to.Detroit NewsJanuary 01, 2000
A movie that speaks well and truly to essentials in the kind of unhurried terms that most modern movies don't even dare to espouse.San Francisco ChronicleJanuary 01, 2000
The competition sequences on the golf links, with the splendid camera work of Michael Ballhaus, and exactly the right amount of digital tweaking, are the real revelations of this film.VarietyJanuary 01, 2000
A lightweight, modestly engaging yarn.Common Sense MediaDecember 28, 2010
Some people will find it simplistic and cliched.Film ThreatDecember 06, 2005
Benign, banal, and sometimes boring inspirational drama.Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)June 25, 2004
Accepting the zen of golf is easy. It's The Legend of Bagger Vance and a callow Will Smith as a mystical golf guru that's hard to swallow.Palo Alto WeeklyMay 20, 2003
Instead of taking on a life of its own, Redford's film reminds you of ones you've seen before. Legends deserve better.Film Quips OnlineFebruary 08, 2003
The movie does contain some heartfelt performances.Nick's Flick PicksJanuary 10, 2003
Sit this one out. Please.
