ReviewSource eFilmCritic.com
Review The screenplay is filled with some interesting dialogue scenes which would work just fine for anyone auditioning for the Actor's Studio but which never come together to accentuate the fraud of impracticality in the offices of the people. As the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Schindler's List who banged a home run with his directorial debut (Searching for Bobby Fischer) and a solid double with A Civil Action (also about how corporate interference is destroying small-town America), I can only believe that Zaillian ran into the same type of meddling which neutered a more epic tale for the sake of a box-office friendly running time. Now wouldn't that make for a more timely screenplay about the country we live in today?

Review All the King's Men is the inherent difficulty of adapting such a complex novel into a screenplay of reasonable length. (The 1949 film suffered from some of the same problems.) As good a writer as Zaillian is, the task is beyond him. There are some very good scenes (the key interaction between Jack and Judge Irwin is compelling), but the overall story feels paradoxically both rushed and overlong. Those familiar with the novel will undoubtedly agree that reading it is a more satisfying experience than watching this disappointing film. One expects more - much more, in fact - with cast of this caliber.

Empire ...beautifully shot, acted and designed...
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times ...an intricate, subtly rewarding narrative...
Rick Groen, The Globe & Mail ...Penn's work here is so mesmerizing, so intense, so guaranteed to put him front and centre when Oscar reads out the nominees...
Stephen Hunter, Washington Post ...an honorable run at Robert Penn Warren's classic novel.
