      Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.

Movie Reviews

  • ultimately, this fleshed-out fantasy is neither as funny, as fierce nor as fearsome as the source material; This "Blithe Spirit" dilutes the original's heady cocktail, serving up a sugary punch rather than a dry martini
    2 of 5 by Pamela Hutchinson [Empire Magazine ]
  • the linguistic wit and comic thrust of Noel Coward's play have been replaced by posh-speak pastiche and endless ham-fisted narrative gambits
    1 of 5 by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph (UK) ]
  • the farce feels a bit dated, but it's a perky and stylish period production, set on a glorious art deco estate, and it moves at a brisk-enough pace to keep our attention
    3 of 5 by Emma Simmonds [Radio Times ]
  • Edward Hall achieves the right tone of joyful chaos to make this story of misrule a natural holiday watch
    3 of 5 by Rachael Knightley [Starburst Magazine ]
  • an energetic but scattershot version of a property which might have been best left to rest in peace; Very little of the opulent, extensive backdrop is left unchewed by Dan Stevens, whose performance is pitched at the pantomime end of the spectrum
    by Wendy Ide [Screen Daily ]
  • a cracking cast do their best to breathe fresh life into this enjoyable but dated farce; Edward Hall doesn't bring a great deal of visual ingenuity to the table, but his take is 'spirited' enough and he's assembled some game players
    3 of 5 by Emma Simmonds [The List Film (UK) ]
