Editorial Reviews

Hollywood Reporter - Barry Garron
Given the length of the film and the curse of unforgiving modern attention spans, [director Andrei] Konchalovsky manages to find a pace that is just right for viewers and for the unfolding of secret strategies and intriguing plot twists.
Boston Herald - Sarah Rodman
Shot on location in Hungary and Slovakia, the 160-minute Lion practically shoots icicles through the screen with its snowy vistas and the chill generated by the gifted ensemble.
