  • For period junkies, it's as rousing as "John Wick" is for action fans. Given the material, a rowdy cheer seems inappropriate, so a polite round of applause will do.

  • A warm if somewhat flat trip back in time that approximates the feel of the show's Christmas specials, only over-sized, and as cozy as a seat by the manor's fire.

  • With a two-hour running time, Downton Abbey can indulge itself in some of the more delicious aspects of its six-season run.

  • Every element you expect to see, you see. The movie knows what it is and is on top of its game. Everything is just so.

  • A soufflé is a light and airy confection of unvaryingly smooth consistency, and so is director Michael Engler's movie...everything whipped into a perfect, bland uniformity.

  • Everything about the film has been finely tailored to deliver precisely what the series did, albeit in a form both more condensed and more diffuse.

    Enjoyed the TV series very much but the movie not so much. Wished I had a farthing for every time Lady Mary rolled her eyes. Fellowes tried to jam to much into the two hours and it just didn't click. Still so much better than the rest of the crap out there in cineplex land. (9-29-19)
