Nicholas Bell @ Ioncinema
Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
Excerpt: The third pairing of Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t prove the charm in Danish director Susanne Bier’s latest…a period story of unwed motherhood, barrenness, betrayal and murder whose animal symbolism (an eagle, a rattlesnake and a panther) is more fleshed out than its characters.
Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
Excerpt: This is potentially meaty material, and behind the lethargic momentum and lackadaisical performances, we can almost hear it crying out for someone involved to put some gusto into it.

Excerpt: Serena May Be The Movie That Bradley Cooper And Jennifer Lawrence Will Want People To Forget
Hugo Gomes @ Cinematograficamente Falando … [Portuguese]
Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
Excerpt: No matter how lushly wrapped in period dress it might be or much star wattage it might have, “Serena” still comes out feeling like a bore.
Kristin Dreyer Kramer @ NightsAndWeekends.com
Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer
Excerpt: Lawrence and Cooper’s next project together can’t be any worse than Serena is, so it’s true that there’s a silver lining to everything.
Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
Excerpt: A major misfire…inert, stodgy and unconvincing, utterly failing to capture the chemistry that Cooper and Lawrence achieved in their work with David O. Russell.
Betty Jo Tucker @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Excerpt: Serena may be an overwrought melodrama, but it’s also a visual treat.
