El consagratorio trabajo actoral de Lady Gaga - y algunos buenos duetos como "Shallow" - hacen que las más de dos horas de Nace una estrella sean tolerables aun cuando sentimos que ya hemos visto esta misma película muchas otras veces.

A Star Is Born might not be a total home run for Cooper, but a triple is pretty solid for your first career at-bat in the majors.

Although [Bradley] Cooper has emerged as a premiere director, there's a bit of disappointment in the air, because the film never hits the emotional falsetto.

The performances are raw and heartfelt. The aesthetic is honest and the music is spectacular. It uplifts and undercuts with equal abandon. It is a fantastic movie experience.

The musical numbers is where this movie shines. You feel every heartache in every note played, every lyric sung, there's a gravitas and a sense of love and care that went into the staging of every frame of this movie.

The film runs out of steam a long time before it runs out of plot, but when it's all working, this is a perfectly worthy addition to the Star Is Born canon.

I really enjoyed this otherwise standard musical for the most part because of the fine performances by Lady Gaga, Cooper, Elliot, Gavron and Dave Chappelle. It is enjoyable despite the fact that the story is painfully clichéd.

The chemistry between Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga is striking; throughout he is mesmerising, she is a joy. Though this is a story told very much from Jackson Maine's point of view.

Gaga and Cooper really click with the emotional elements of the material and bring a lot of energy to the very simple and familiar story.
