Offers pretty much everything a fan could want from a feature-length continuation of the beloved Masterpiece series.

"Downton Abbey," an enjoyable but uneven film adaptation of the beloved PBS series, seems designed to give fans what they want.

It's been four long years since series creator Jullian Fellowes said goodbye to the Crawleys on TV, but it's safe to say that he hasn't missed a beat since then, bringing all of our favorite characters back to life for a royal dinner to remember

While it's delightful to think of Mrs. Patmore and Daisy forever bustling in their kitchen, and Cora and Robert forever waltzing across a parquet floor, I hope this movie closes the door on Downton Abbey for good.

It's just such a breezy watch.

It's not a disgrace compared to the series, but it doesn't empower the television version or add anything to it. It's superfluous.
September 17, 2019
So close to perfection. A movie must become an annual event.

If you were among the millions of fans who suffered Downton withdrawal, by all means get thee to your local cinema this weekend. Downton Abbey, the movie, is bigger, if not exactly better, than ever.

DOWNTON ABBEY reminds us why we were all such fans of the series.

If you're a devoted fan of "Downton Abbey" the TV show, then DOWNTON ABBEY the movie will be a feast for your eyes and ears.

Rarely do I get to have such fun with a film, and I am going to relish in it. It's an event worthy of the Queen.

I do recommend Downton Abbey to fellow fans of the series. But it might be best enjoyed not in a theater, but in the same way we watched the show: Streamed at home, where we're free to gleefully repeat our favorite lines in questionable British accents.

It may be a shameless crowd-pleaser from start to finish, but Fellowes is also quietly continuing his exploration of the enduring fragility of the class system.

I, too, got swept up in this Disney-movie fantasia of benevolent, gracious aristocrats and their plucky servants all working together to... serve dinner to the king. Downton does that to you.

A wallow in the lavish living and moral certainties of Downton's shiny imagined past, Fellowes and Engler's film creates a vision of a politically and socially secure Great Britain that has rarely seemed further out of reach.
September 16, 2019
From the first magical notes of the Downton Abbey theme to the brilliant final scenes, Engler and Fellowes do this amazingly talented ensemble justice.

If this is to be a final farewell - and there seems no reason why it should be - then it's certainly a good one.
September 16, 2019
It is in the end a reassurance machine, showing us that a clear-cut class system can only be even more treasured by those at the bottom than those at the top.

Indeed, kinks are ironed out so quickly that a cynic might suggest this script was originally planned for TV, around its ad breaks.

The big-screen version of Downton Abbey is still engaging, well-dressed comfort food. It just doesn't quite feel like a full meal.
