  • Critic Reviews of "Empire of the Sun"

    Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader

    The pseudomystical vagueness that seems to be Spielberg's stock-in-trade stifles most of the particularity of the source.

    Sheila Benson Los Angeles Times

    The film's grave problem is a lack of central heating: We don't have a single character to warm up to.

    Gene Siskel Chicago Tribune
    October 26, 2016

    This is derivative melodrama with Spielberg hedging his bets by ripping off his previous adventure films to lighten a story that cries out not to be turned into a comic book.

    Dave Kehr Chicago Tribune
    October 26, 2016

    Empire of the Sun wants very badly to be a great film, though as Steven Spielberg really ought to know by now, wishing doesn't make it so.

    Richard Corliss TIME Magazine

    Spielberg has dreamed of flying before, and this time he earns his wings.

    No special use is made of the talents of Miranda Richardson, Nigel Havers, Joe Pantoliano and the others, so it is up to young English thesp Bale to engage the viewer's interest, which he does superbly.

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    [Empire of the Sun] has too much childish buoyancy to serve the disturbing historical events it's ostensibly based on.

    Joanna Berry Radio Times
    October 26, 2016

    Now considered a trial run for the more moving, horrifying and involving Schindler's List, Steven Spielberg's drama, set in China during the Second World War, is a glossy and rather tame affair.

    Cathy Burke United Press International
    August 23, 2016

    Empire of the Sun is a breathtaking movie in its scope and energy. It's just that, true to its childlike quality, this film is just a little too over-anxious to get its point across.

    Dennis Schwartz Ozus' World Movie Reviews
    August 21, 2014

    Spielberg knows how to tell a story and this one is worth telling.

    Tim Brayton Antagony & Ecstasy
    April 07, 2013

    The best mix in his directorial career between typical Spielbergian flourishes of audience-friendly spectacle and seriousness of intent.
