Antonio Banderas
Actor, Interview With The Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994)
Banderas, who seems to have a hairball in his mouth, dissipates the tension by making eyes at Brad Pitt and burbling such things as "We must be powerful, beautiful, without regret”.
(David Denby, New York)
Actor, Assassins (1995)
A performance of such awe-inspiring awfulness from Banderas that he makes Stallone resemble Olivier at his peak.
(Alan Frank, Frank's 500)
Sylvester Stallone is so inert that he seems to have been replaced by his Madam Tussaud's replica, while Antonio Banderas is so hyper-active that a waxwork replacement would be vastly preferable.
(Chris Tookey, Daily Mail)
Actor, Two Much (1996)
Offscreen rapport notwithstanding, Banderas and Griffith display little chemistry. He has a comic touch so heavy it suggests a cow trying to tap-dance.
(Ralph Novak, People Weekly)
Actor, the Thirteenth Warrior (1999)
Banderas as an Islamic scholar is about as convincing as seeing Julio Iglesias cast as the leader of the Palestinian Liberation organisation.
(Peter Bradshaw, Guardian)
Actor, The Legend of Zorro (2005)
Frankly, Banderas is looking a little too old to play Zorro, and the double chin looks out of place. As an actor, he’s on auto-pilot. Even those scenes that show Zorro as a fallen hero and demand some emotional depth are beyond him.
(Cosmo Landesman, Sunday Times)
