Over its 6 seasons, the series garnered 3 Golden Globe Awards, 15 Primetime Emmy Awards, 69 Emmy nominations in total, making Downton Abbey the most nominated non-US television show in the history of the Emmys - even earning a Special BAFTA award and a Guinness World Record for the highest critically rated TV show along the way.

Drama - This is a big-screen follow-up to the popular, long-running British ensemble costume drama series on PBS that left the air in 2016. Nearly all of the original stars return, with a couple of newcomers. There is no sexual content, violence, nor language, but there is some homosexual themes that could be of concern to parents.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Downton Abbey is not made with a general audience in mind. Instead, it's a plot-lite opportunity for fans of the long-running TV series ... The bottom line is simple: If you're a fan, you'll see the movie and most likely enjoy it.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good The rating is for die-hards who will comprise the majority of viewers for this big-screen wrap-up of the Julian Fellowes drama... The rating is also for fans of a certain sub-genre of film and TV: lavishly produced costume dramas...

USA Today Full Review
Very Good ...packs a season's worth of plot into two hours, with plenty of pageantry along the way to yet another round of (mostly) happy endings. It wouldn't be "Downton Abbey” without some melodrama, and there's plenty more to come...

Rolling Stone Full Review
Above Average ...less an actual movie than a special episode of the very British TV series.. Newbies will lose their way at every turn. The filmmakers have no intention of playing catch-up. The actors have a ball with the fun and games. And you will, too, unless — as noted — you and the TV series have never crossed paths.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Above Average After a while, all you see are the gears of various sublots turning separately until they mesh together and move in unison. The royal visit is the axis around which the entirety of Michael Engler's film revolves, setting up a cascading domino effect of setbacks and triumphs...

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

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 88 moviegoers:
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: One male enjoyed it very much and one felt it was a "good/average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). The female reviews are very mixed. One loved it, two rated it "good/average" and one was disappointed.
ADULTS: Both the male and female reviews are GREAT! A very high percentage LOVED "DOWNTOWN ABBY." Only a relatively small percentage rated it as low as "good/average."
