Roger Ebert You perhaps know little enough about Shakespeare and next to nothing about the other candidates. That's no reason to avoid this marvelous historical film, which I believe to be profoundly mistaken.
James Berardinelli Anonymous is a problematic movie to market and sell. The material will play better to those with a love of Shakespeare and an understanding of his era, but the film has been designed with a general audience in mind. As a result, this becomes an art house production playing in multiplexes, which is not ideal for finding the right viewership - at least until it reaches home video.
Tomatometer Roland Emmerich delivers his trademark visual and emotional bombast, but the more Anonymous stops and tries to convince the audience of its half-baked theory, the less convincing it becomes.
