Critic Reviews for Mary Magdalene
Neither Rooney Mara (as Mary) nor Joaquin Phoenix (as Jesus) are especially compelling.
This is a noble effort, but ultimately Mary Magdalene isn't much less of a mystery than she was at the start of the journey.

Audience Reviews for Mary Magdalene
For a film about Mary Magdalene, there is sadly too much here about Jesus Christ and "God's design" and not enough about herself, as she becomes little more than a passive spectator in a story that poorly tries to depict life as a woman in such a strongly patriarchal society.
