Recently watched it on AppleTV.
It was ploddingly slow. There were several references to his charisma - yet there was nothing shown that gave any evidence of that. Instead, it was uncharismatic.
The visuals were good.

Its frankly amazing just how bad this thing bombed, a Joaquin Phoenix and Ridley Scott historical epic couldn't miss, right?

The only couple of generally positive reviews I've seen are here on CP, what a massive bomb

Total snooze fest.

With a decent editor, it could have been better.

You make him Josephine's simp and have that be the focus of the movie....

I watched it last night, and kept checking to see how soon it would be over.

Figures. Gotta love woke Hollywood. Behind every great man is a woman who either (a) actively conspires against him, or (b) has his balls in her purse. Is "purse" still an acceptable word, or should I call it a "utilitarian handbag"? I'd hate to offend anyone.

As far as this movie goes, in the past I'd have been chomping at the bit to see a sweeping, historical epic done by Ridley Scott. But I thought the trailers were awful. Phoenix's bland, bored expression never altered. A bad sign borne out by the overwhelmingly negative reactions.

Also, fuck the French.

So don't let it become the central tenant of a biopic.

If it's a movie about Napoleon, make it about Napoleon. Don't make it about Napoleon's relationship...oh, and there was a revolution and a couple battles and stuff...

Scott's usually pretty good about not overdoing that sort of thing, but the trailer makes me wonder.

I streamed it. I shut it down about half way thru it. I couldn't take it anymore. I can't believe how shitty that movie was.

They ****ed this movie up big time. Phoenix and Scott historical epic movie, how could you fail?

It was so damn slow. Napoleon's life should give you enough material to make a kick ass movie. Scott made some bad choices. Could have been an epic movie.
