  1. Simon's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

  2. Axel's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

    Good? Yes. Important? Possibly. Oscar worthy? Nah.

  3. Vitória Carvalho's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

    Uma realidade que me tocou durante o filme todo, inclusive lágrimas e gritos, pela repugnante injustiça de tratar um humano desumanamente.

  4. Carolina Pereira's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

    Quero berrar e chorar e chorar e berrar

  5. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

    Un buon film, efficace nell'amalgamare il tocco personale del regista con il realismo storico degli avvenimenti narrati. Seppur tremendamente viziato da quelle scene che urlano "datemi l'Oscar, bastardi!", riesce comunque a mantenere una narrativa efficace e tutto sommato interessante. Tutto è impreziosito dalla solita grande regia di McQueen e da una fotografia curata e funzionale al racconto.

  6. Adolfo Isaac's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

  7. jananonloso's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

    Shattering. Solid film wich takes its time to linger on the protagonists face.

  8. Luke Spence's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

    Oscar bait. A good film nevertheless

  9. ruzica's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

    I would say this is a good film at any time. No one can deny this shameful period of American history; however, I hate when I'm being emotionally manipulated by a picture. There is no subtlety in this whatsoever and that is what I was bothered with from the beginning until the very end.

  10. FISCHER's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

    Une oeuvre forte et nécessaire, par un cinéaste tout aussi indispensable dont on pourrait reprocher son manque de dénonciation politique sur la nature institutionnelle de l'esclavage aux States, se cantonnant presque uniquement dans sa représentation avec ses insistants corollaires d'humiliation et de sadisme, éludant l'embarrassante question des errements de la Constitution américaine de l'époque. www.cinefiches.com

  11. Igor Ramos's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

    It clearly is McQueen's most political film, true Oscar-bait material (and rightfully so) that sure must be close to the heart of the director. An outstanding cast, efective script and beautiful cinematography allow for a nicely paced story that just grabs your attention at every single scene. After three films, McQueen is already one of the best, but I hope he doesn't forget his indie origins.

  13. Pedro Soares's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

    as a plastic artist, it's natural that mcqueen has a kind of cold aproach he puts in everything he creates, which worked beautifully in hunger and shame. 12 years a slave, however, as an 'epic' film, requires a warm touch, which mcqueen wasn't able to provide. it ends up failing to deliver the kind of emotion the film needs

  14. Roy Deckard's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

    3.7 actually. It is a Steve McQueen movie already but not a Hunger or a Shame-Steve McQueen.

  15. blyniukas's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

    I found it to be a tear-jerker crowd-pleaser of a film. I was expecting it to dig deeper into psychology of the character, have a stronger backbone, subtlety and intricacy of detail. None found.

  16. Gabriele Pumo's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

  17. hamsa's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

    i liked the movie and the story behind it, but it was too much for me emotionally.

  18. RisuSardonicus's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

    Mr McQueen you truly are a great filmmaker.

  19. Thomas Dods's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

    A simple story well told with a powerhouse performance from Ejiofor. Tonally it is perfect, it is not overly sentimental and retains an "art house" edge where it could have descended into awards fodder. The casual racism on display here is just as shocking as the violence (where it doesn't hold back) and another excellent turn from Fassbender, surely the best actor of his generation?

  20. tenonder's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

  21. SiIencio's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

    A film more political than substantial, painfully mono-dimensional in its portrayal of brutality. McQueen finds himself in the perfect spot, twisting the arms of a film academy, emotionally blackmailed and with a longlasting debt to the black community. Perfect PR campaign to harvest golden accolades. Even actors, caught in a clash of accents that brings no revelations, were quickly shrined for political correctness.

  23. cinegeek.de's rating of the film 12 Years a Slave

    In letzter Zeit konnte man so einige Filme sehen mit dem Sujet der Sklaverei. Die meisten versuchten, die Thematik durch schwarzen Humor etwas erträglicher zu machen. 12 Years A Slave ist ganz anders: Düster, meditativ und in vielen Passagen sogar poetisch...
