Movie Reviews

EmanuelLevy.Com - 8/10 by Emanuel Levy A simplistic fairy tale, directed by Lyne in a trashy, superficially glitzy style, with pretense to realism in its on-location shooting and a woman who works as a welder, and the kind of postmodernism that's mostly evident in the heroine's name, Alex.
Boston Globe - 6/10 by Jay Carr Flashdance makes liberal use of jump cuts, strobe lighting and hard-edged, post-punk chic in its dance sequences, it registers as the end product of energy being released by an essentially lyrical temperament. It charms us, makes us want to refrain from scrutinizing it too closely. [31 Jul 1983, p.1]
7M Pictures - 6/10 by Kevin Carr a beautiful piece of retro culture
Time Out - 6/10 by Trevor Johnston Depressing to think that this was a huge hit on the back of the Irene Cara hit single, since there's absolutely nothing to it.
Boston Globe - 6/10 by Jay Carr With a score by Giorgio Moroder, and with ingenious costumes that are utterly au courant, Flashdance contains such dynamic dance scenes that it's a pity there's a story here to bog them down.
Radio Times - 6/10 by Alan Jones Director Adrian Lyne caught the post-disco visual mood of the time to win over even the most cynical viewer.
Filmcritic.com - 5/10 by Don Willmott "What a feeling" indeed.
ReelViews - 5/10 by James Berardinelli Flashdance might be considered one of the first signs of Hollywood's Apocalypse.
Variety - 5/10 by Variety Staff Virtually plotless, exceedingly thin on characterization and sociologically laughable, pic at least lives up to its title by offering an anthology of extraordinarily flashy dance numbers.
Antagony & Ecstasy - 4/10 by Tim Brayton Crudely-made in just about every possible way, Flashdance has only nostalgia going for it.
Christian Science Monitor - 4/10 by Unknown Punchy, cleverly stylized, but utterly empty yarn about a feisty young woman who welds by day, disco-dances by night, and dreams of the day when she can devote her life to her art.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 4/10 by Stephen Godfrey Like Saturday Night Fever and, for that matter, the Rocky films, Flashdance has made it big by taking experiences of black youths and playing them in whiteface. But unlike its grittily romantic predecessors, Flashdance is pure glitz.
