Ratings & Reviews

  1. Dalibor's rating of the film Ágora

    Conceived as a critique of religious fundamentalism, but relaying way too much on historical fiction to be one, the film expresses its luxurious scenography and monumental frames to woo any naive viewers. Parallel between the incomprehensibility of space and human stupidity is solid at first, but turns out slim and too sentimental.

  2. Leif Erikson's rating of the film Ágora

    As far as I am aware, your God has not yet proved himself to be more just or more merciful than his predecessors...

  3. Erica Narduzzi's rating of the film Ágora

  4. Lou's rating of the film Ágora

    One of few films that focuses of the story of the female lead, and let her have her passion - which is not a man. Worth watching only for this reason!

  5. Wahid Khan's rating of the film Ágora

    Magnificent. A stunning masterpiece.

  6. Victor Gonzalez's rating of the film Ágora

  7. Ayesha Casely-Hayford's rating of the film Ágora

    I hope if this is ever made again they will put some black people in it. The absence makes this film too painful to watch. Lack of artistic integrity.

  8. Thomas Dods's rating of the film Ágora

    A thinking man's sword and sandals epic with a powerhouse performance from Rachael Weisz. Its depiction of religious fundamentalism is just as relevant now as it was then and the whole thing is beautifully shot.

  9. alimcintyre's rating of the film Ágora

    Beautiful photography and attention to detail but ultimately a little boring. Rachel Weisz saved it from disaster.

  10. Benjamin Smith-Haddon's rating of the film Ágora

    robespiere is right. So is Superfrog.

  11. Ladyslobberin's rating of the film Ágora

    The film had a horrible cheapness masquerading as modernism. Despite knowing little of the facts surrounding these historical circumstances the events reeked of inaccuracies. However, despite its cheesiness I found the love story beautiful and tragic and the film itself enjoyable.

  12. Penelope q's rating of the film Ágora

    An excellent depiction of professor Hypatia of Alexandria and the destruction of the Alexandria library by the christians. Always religion trying to fight reason, always burning, bringing universal knowledge to the dark ages.

  13. Steve Thompson's rating of the film Ágora

    Though bombastic and overcooked in emotional and thematic development, this ambitious tale of ancient Alexandria has some genuine philosophical and ethical integrity, not least due to its solid research and keen relevance to contemporary issues of gender, education and religious fanaticism. Rachel Weisz as earnest but heroic philosopher Hypatia also lends enough genuine dramatic quality to redeem the spectacle.

  14. Superfrog's rating of the film Ágora

    Somewhere between Lord of the Rings and Gibson's passion of the Christ. Boring, overly theatrical, too many pointless battles, and with the political/social analysis depth close to 0.

  15. Kevino's rating of the film Ágora

    The god is killing us. Such an educational film

  16. Niccolo's rating of the film Ágora

    for once a recent historical movie that with dignity gives up Hollywood-style bastardization of everything and does not end up dressing up Spider, Iron or Super Man template plots with historical facts. Grim and relentless as human history likes to be.

  17. lowplacelikehome's rating of the film Ágora

    Dumb christians and their shenanigans.

  18. Barış Akpınar's rating of the film Ágora

    "you don't question what you believe, or cannot. I must."

  19. Meastro0's rating of the film Ágora

    Nice photography, but this shoud not be simple black and white fight between atheism and christians at 2000s.

  20. Estelle Pérot et Olivier Euzen's rating of the film Ágora

    A bit tacky but so beautiful. All my respect to the director to deal with such a subject. Nobody talks about the first Christians for what they really were.

  21. dyinguniverse's rating of the film Ágora

  22. Eric Ortega's rating of the film Ágora

  23. Lucii Lugo's rating of the film Ágora

    Fascinante retrato del mundo antiguo y la sed de conocimiento que desafiaba todos los esquemas y reglas de lo arbitrario. La lucha constante entre la religión y la ciencia. Una historia que a pesar de situarse hace siglos se siente sumamente actual. Gran producción con buenas actuaciones y una trama bastante atrayente. Hepatia nos recuerda el rol que juega la mujer aún hoy en día dentro de un mundo de hombres.

  24. Zepo's rating of the film Ágora

    Una producción de primera, una historia que lamentablemente nos recuerda los hierros ardientes del nacimiento de las religiones monoteistas y la destruccion cultural que causaron. ¿Causaron?, que siguen causando
