Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Average "Mandolin miscalculates the weight the romantic leads are capable of bearing. Both Cage and Cruz are such slo-mo creatures, so prone to conveying dampness when they aim for smolder, that the passion between Corelli and his Pelagia is indistinguishable from the affection the captain demonstrates for his mandolin.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Good "Although there's nothing ground-breaking or otherwise extraordinary about the film, it is expertly directed, beautifully photographed, and (for the most part) nicely acted. The storyline does not consistently rely upon worn-out
clichés and tired formulas, and the character definition and interaction have the strength to tap into the viewer's emotions.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Average "What we get is kind of a condensed version of some of the sights and sounds of the novel, without the heart, the spirit and the juicy detail. The movie seems to exist on some sort of movie stage and not in the real world.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Good "Think of it as the anti-PEARL HARBOR. Relying more on story and character than special effects, this moving adaptation of Louis de Bernières novel achieves everything that Michael Bay's empty spectacle could not.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Most everyone enjoyed this movie, but it did not receive a lot of real high opinions and it did receive quite a few opinions that were somewhat low. This translates into an above average movie at best. It's certainly worth seeing and most of you will probably enjoy it, but it's not a movie you're likely to rush to tell your friends to see.

Overall, I would recommend this movie, especially for the ladies. The guys who see it with their ladies, should also find it enjoyable, but are unlikely to feel it was a great movie.

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
I enjoyed it. It wasn't great, but it was entertaining. It is a bit slow, but not too bad and the pace does pick up towards the end. I believe most moviegoers will feel they were sufficiently entertained.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The idyllic beauty of Greece's Mediterranean coast has been invaded by Italy, bringing legions of soldiers to the once tranquil island of Cephallonia. Captain Antonio Corelli (Cage), an officer with an irrepressibly jovial personality and passion for the mandolin, initially alienates a number of the villagers, including Pelagia (Cruz). The daughter of the village doctor, Pelagia is an educated and strong-willed woman, and while at first offended by the Italian soldier's behavior, she slowly warms to his certain charms as they are forced to share her father's home.

When Pelagia's fiancee, a local fisherman, heads off to war, the friendship between Antonio and Pelagia grows even stronger. Her beauty and intelligence capture his heart, and his fondness for the village's vibrant community causes him to question his reasons for fighting. Antonio becomes a part of the lives of the villagers, but the moment is fleeting. As the war grows ever closer, Antonio and Pelagia are forced to choose between their allegiance to their countries and the love they feel for one another—a love which must overcome tremendous odds, and endure the inevitable sacrifice which accompanies eternal devotion.
