Movie Reviews

Oregonian - 9/10 by Marc MohanRushdie adeptly trims his sprawling tale down to a still-substantial 2 1/2-hour movie, which only occasionally seems to hurry.
Philadelphia Weekly - 8/10 by Sean BurnsThere's nothing to hang onto here. Most scenes last only two or three minutes, and events don't accrue so much as they just pig-pile on top of one another.
Digital Spy - 8/10 by Priya JoshiMidnight's Children is the perfect medley of story, cast and characterisation infused with Rushdie's poetic brilliance.
Scotsman - 8/10 by Siobhan SynnotMehta has a painterly eye, giving her images a mythological beauty and tender sensuality.
Village Voice - 8/10 by Alan ScherstuhlSo lavish and unwieldy is the book, Rushdie's best, that a film of it can't help but feel like a helpless reduction, like a bucket of water passed off as an ocean.
One Guy's Opinion - 8/10 by Frank SwietekA sprawling, lumbering epic that manages to preserve a substantial amount of the book's content but achieves little of its magic.
Christian Science Monitor - 8/10 by Peter RainerThere are enough intermittent passages of power and beauty to get you through the slow spots.
Empire Magazine - 8/10 by Kim NewmanThanks to Rushdie's sensitive handling of his own material, this is an adaptation big in both ideas and heart.
The Spectator - 8/10 by Deborah RossThe trouble with... Midnight's Children, aside from the fact it is a mess and a muddle, is that it goes on and on and on and on. And on. And on. And then, just when you think it has to be over, it goes on some more.
The Ooh Tray - 7/10 by Ed WhitfieldRather more virtuosity behind the camera was required to induce the desired hypnotic effect. Deepa Mehta just isn't up to it.
