The guilt over the death of the daughter may be historical, but Creation uses it to make Darwin appear less like a brilliant mind that makes humans question their origin and more like a cliched, kooky scientist often seen in the movies. It's also repetitive in its clashes-of-beliefs scenes with the Connelly character without giving us the whole picture. Bettany, however, is quite good as Darwin in this simple biopic.
2.5/5 Although attempting to illustrate the possible psychological torment in Darwin's life, we are left with an over acted melodrama. Well produced and minorly thought provoking - but leaves you wanting a more in depth alternative. @ M.G. Wood - For a more conclusive documentary, try Charles Darwin and the Tree of Life by David Attenborough or The Genius of Charles Darwin by Richard Dawkins.
