Rating: 3.5/4 -- Evita allows the audience to identify with a heroine who achieves greatness by -- well, golly, by being who she is. Full Review

All in all, Evita is worth your time and money. Full Review

After all the painstaking verisimilitude the movie neglects its characters. Evita the woman shrinks. It's the background we react to-especially the crowd, with its power to applaud or boo. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- With one of the most dazzling screen chassis in years, Evita is definitely worth a look -- maybe even two. But don't look under the hood.

...Madonna, who took voice lessons to extend her range, easily masters the musical material. As importantly, she is a convincing Evita...

Rating: 3.5/4 -- A pretty much ideal big-screen adaptation of the material, which becomes convincingly cinematic. [Blu-ray] Full Review

Rating: 6/10 -- No matter how great all the constituent elements were, [it couldn't] survive the kind of stiff, wholly artificial and forced performance that Madonna gives. Full Review

Product Description:

Madonna tackles the title role in Alan Parker's ambitious recounting of the brief, amazing life of former Argentine first lady Eva Perón. Presented almost entirely in song and narrated by Antonio Banderas as a fictional everyman, the film charts the alternately revered and reviled Evita's rise from poverty to become a film and radio actress; her relationship with President Juan Perón (Jonathan Pryce); and her tragic death from cancer at age 33.

Banderas, a surprisingly moving singer, and the inimitable Madonna, who took voice lessons before filming commenced to expand her vocal range, provide the emotional bedrock for the eminently enjoyable film with their charismatic screen presences. The music, including the Oscar-winning song "You Must Love Me," weaves an entrancing web, and the sets and costumes are awe inspiring. Parker does a fine job of adapting Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical for the big screen. The director's vision shines clearly here: Like PINK FLOYD: THE WALL, EVITA is an enchanting mixture of epic fairy tale and sociopolitical psychodrama.
