It seems that The Theory of Everything doesn't have to theorize as much to prove that Eddie Redmayne is staging, perhaps, one of the best performances of the year. [Full review in Spanish]

The Theory of Everything side-steps the obvious aspects that shaped Hawking into the man he is today, but Redmayne and Jones deserve the praise in this somewhat biased biopic.

Standardly told, yet executing the complicated parameters and perils of the biopic quite satisfactorily, it may not be as brilliant as its subject, but it's a moving piece of cinema nonetheless.

Redmayne is brilliant as Stephen Hawking.

Adheres to the standard biography blueprint. What helps "The Theory of Everything" rise above mediocrity is Redmayne and Jones.
November 9, 2018
In many ways comparable to the Ron Howard-directed A Beautiful Mind, the introspective The Theory Of Everything is a marvelous calculation of time and space that even the real-life Stephen Hawking can embrace with conviction.

While nothing revolutionary occurs in the film, the performances from Redmayne and Jones elevate this biography above your typical Oscar fare. [The Theory of Everything] is easily worth the time.

Redmayne and Jones are fantastic, and it's wonderful to see a biopic that includes the woman next to the famous man, but there's no there to their relationship, or their family, which grows with seemingly no parenting effort whatsoever.
May 1, 2018
Its tale is still unsurprisingly uplifting, mainly because Hawking's perseverance against his disability, even if left un-filmed, is something that can only be admired.
