A Beautiful Mind | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Jonathan Romney Independent on Sunday Ultimately the message is banal and rather repellent: brainwork wrecks your health. Feb 28, 2018 Full Review A Beautiful Mind | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Philip Kerr New Statesman Crowe is called upon to do not much more than stare solicitously at the heavens, from where inspiration duly arrives, to the accompaniment of some predictably celestial music. Oct 21, 2014 Full Review A Beautiful Mind | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Christy Lemire Associated Press A Beautiful Mind is Howard's best movie, and easily one of the best movies of the year. Feb 4, 2014 Full Review A Beautiful Mind | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Mark Johnson Awards Daily When I think of the phrase “Oscar bait,” an expression I’m honestly not fond of, Ron Howard’s A Beautiful Mind is the first movie I always think of. Jun 27, 2023 Full Review A Beautiful Mind | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Catherine Springer CathsFilmForum.com Nash's character is perfectly suited to Crowe's ability to charm and confuse at the same moment. Rated: 3/5 Jul 26, 2021 Full Review A Beautiful Mind | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Mike Massie Gone With The Twins Its inspirational qualities to read more about the real John Nash (and all the things omitted from this biopic) might be the only lasting effect.

Alysha S "A Beautiful Mind" represents so much of what a film should be. A remarkable story, heart, warmth, good lighting and top-of-the-line music. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/28/24 Full Review Marko A The script carried this movie! Some great lessons to learn in this one but the similarity with other movies from before cap it at 4 stars. Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/23/24 Full Review Ionela C Just saw it today 20th 2024 April loved it. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/20/24 Full Review Mate P A Beautiful Mind is a great movie. It's really emotionally driven by the second half. There is a big reveal in the middle of the film, which shocked me. But if I think it over, I should have seen it coming, because there were some things I didn't like about the acting (eye movement), some weird stuff regarding Ed Harris's character. So everything was clear to me in the end, which elevates the experience for me. Both Russel Crowe and Jennifer Connelly gave amazing acting performances.The cinematography was a little strange in some places and the movie really slowed down before the last 15 minutes.That's the only bad thing I can say about this movie, so it really deserves a 9/10. Rated 4.5/5 Stars • Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/03/24 Full Review Johannes S The story of Jon Nash Jr. is nothing short of amazing. So is this movie with outstanding acting by Crowe and Connelly with the latter earning an Academy Award for her work. Rated 4.5/5 Stars • Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/03/24 Full Review Ray B I love this movie. Russell Crowe was amazing, and the movie held my attention the entire time. One of the few films I will watch again. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/05/23 Full Review Read all reviews
