Rock! Shock! Pop!

  • Summary: Loads of strong technique and some impressive visual flair make The Raven a treat for the eyes while the played out storyline prevents it from ever taking off the way it could have.

  • Conclusion: The Raven crafts a reasonably creative and involving mystery around Edgar Allan Poe and his works. It kind of plays out like a less flashy, less visceral version of the new Sherlock Holmes movies, so if you like those and can tolerate some gore, it's in your interest to check this out.

The Raven (2012)

High-Def Digest
12 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Full of grand, original ideas, with plenty of potential to entertain, 'The Raven' ultimately lacks the substance to make audiences care or make this fictionalized mystery thriller the least bit memorable.

BluRay Authority

  • Excerpt: “Nevermore.” As I learned watching a few of the featurettes to this movie, Edgar Allen Poe was the first American author to actually write for a living.  That’s to say he wrote and actually got paid for it.

The Raven Review

9 October 2012
  • Excerpt: John Cusak’s portrayal of famed literary icon Edgar Allan Poe is one of flailing arms, sharp stares, and a genuine affection for exaggeration. The character is tanked but by decisions not necessarily made by Cusak. This one is likely on director James McTeigue.

The Raven

Cinema Blend
27 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Over the years it’s become easy to figure out which movies John Cusack does for the pleasure and fulfillment of being an actor and which ones he does for the paycheck. James McTeigue’s The Raven clearly falls in the latter category, as it’s impossible to believe that an actor as smart and talented...

  • Summary: Part "Seven", part "From Hell", part "Sherlock Holmes", but despite its contrivances there are enough clever nods in the script to keep it interesting.

AV Club
26 April 2012
