Kyle Bruce’s review published on Letterboxd:
If anybody ever asks me what the dullest movie of all time is, my reply will, from now on, be Ammonite. The movie has basically no plot, choosing to focus on the romance between Winslet and Ronan's characters. You would hope that they at least had some sort of romantic chemistry, but there is literally nothing there. I can't help but think that Saoirse Ronan was sitting on the beach, staring at the ocean thinking to herself 'surely I've got better things to do.' This film has nothing to offer, and I am sad because this was shaping up to be among the best of the year.
