Hot Press
The Children Act can feel sluggish and melodramatic, weighed down with the use of superfluous flashbacks, letter-reading voice-overs, and the repeated use of stodgy Bach passages. Intelligent, but airless.

Flickering Myth
The melodrama is piled on during the final act to an unbearable degree with material not even Emma Thompson can save.

Irish Times
The film thinks itself very grown-up and, like many films that think themselves that, plays out its confrontations in the style of a middlebrow play.

If Emma Thompson can't make this drama about a family-court judge conflicted over her own decisions and the precarious state of her own family into something interesting and meaningful, then no one can. And she can't.

File this under missed opportunity. More often than not, it feels like a pretentious episode of Holby City. Or a shallow take on John Huston's The Dead.
