      Tomris Laffly Variety Considering the colossal historical footprint of the real-world story it tells, "De Gaulle" should have been an occasion equal parts immersive and high-stakes, but Le Bomin's tedious drag fails to rise to it. Oct 20, 2021 Full Review Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald Wilson makes a very plausible de Gaulle. He has the height, the slimness and the posture and once he has the uniform on, it's easy to overlook the fact that he's much too handsome for the part. Rated: 3/5 May 5, 2021 Full Review Jordan Mintzer Hollywood Reporter A bland piece of hero worship. Mar 10, 2020 Full Review Todd Jorgenson Cinemalogue Considering the turbulent historical period it depicts, this tedious biopic fails to sufficiently heighten the stakes. Oct 22, 2021 Full Review Jane Freebury The Canberra Times (Australia) Despite some vapid domestic scene-setting, the focus is on tense, compelling backroom negotiations before the general (an outstanding Lambert Wilson) became a wartime leader Rated: 4/5 Sep 5, 2021 Full Review Sarah Ward Concrete Playground The end result, while never short on intrigue, always seems more interested in explaining history than depicting it.

      Reid B A great film full of excellent performances by the cast. Although it only covers a fraction of De Gaulle's life, it successfully gets across his importance and influence at the time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
