Critic Reviews of "The Water Diviner"Chicago Sun-TimesApril 26, 2015
Indeed, this is the 51-year-old Crowe's first time as a movie director, but he's hardly a novice actor stepping behind the camera for some sort of vanity project.New York Magazine/VultureApril 24, 2015
It's clear that Russell Crowe has poured his heart and soul into the historical romance The Water Diviner, his first feature as a director. If only the film were better.Christian Science MonitorApril 24, 2015
A sloggy, heartfelt piece of quasi-magical realist storytelling.Rolling StoneApril 24, 2015
Crowe strives to strike a universal chord about the futility of war. Simplistic? Maybe. But in crafting a film about the pain a parent feels after losing a child in battle, Crowe transcends borders and politics.TIME MagazineApril 24, 2015
Crowe needs, badly, a director to push back against his default mode: The script for The Water Diviner posits that Joshua Connor is the most interesting man in the frame at all times, but Crowe's performance doesn't earn that.Newark Star-LedgerApril 24, 2015
Even slightly self-censored, its images of broken cities and the walking wounded is a strong restating of the film's message: There is no such thing as a "good" war. There's only war - sometimes necessary, sometimes not. And always inhuman.Film InquiryMay 11, 2017
This is a movie lacking in life or vibrancy, or any real emotions for us to actually connect to or relate to the characters; it is enamoured by its subject matter and as such tries to make itself too respectful.South China Morning PostApril 02, 2016
The preposterousness of [the story] is offset by Crowe's powerful depiction of the horrors of war for both the Australians and Turks.The Film StageFebruary 24, 2016
[This is] for the tiresome cynics who think that many films aren't about anything anymore, and would rather a film be definitively about something, than any good overall.The Canberra Times (Australia)December 30, 2015
As expected, what an actor-turned-director like Crowe can do is pull strong performances out of his cast.Daily Telegraph (Australia)December 21, 2015
A well-meaning, worthy and, at times, moving ode to Gallipoli.
