ReviewSource ReelViews
Review Elizabeth: The Golden Age lacks the intricate plotting that characterized its predecessor. The screenplay is more action-oriented but not as smart, and some of the dialogue is downright cheesy. Many of those involved in the first Elizabeth have returned, including actors Cate Blanchett and Geoffrey Rush; director Kapur; screenwriter Michael Hirst; and cinematographer Remi Aderfarasin. For the most part, Elizabeth: The Golden Age feels like what it's supposed to be - a continuation of the story begun in the 1998 feature. If it lacks the power and grandeur of the first chapter...well, sequels almost always show a fall-off, and here at least the drop isn't precipitous...Blanchett is the film's chief asset, picking up where she left off nearly ten years ago. This isn't the star-making turn it was at that time, but it's solid, colorful work. Geoffrey Rush has less to do and, as a result, is a less forceful presence. Clive Owen is suitably dashing and Abbie Cornish is adorable, but neither draws the camera's attention with regularity. Although the performances are all workmanlike, they are unlikely to garner much notice when it comes time for Oscar nominations to be announced.

J.R. Jones, Chicago Reader ...Blanchett returns to the role that made her a star, and...this sequel to "Elizabeth" (1998) is...just as entertaining.
Ruthe Stein, San Francisco Chronicle An enticingly risque saga of the 16th century monarch.
