Movie Reviews

Variety - 10/10 by Todd McCarthy An enormously entertaining slice of biographical drama, The Aviator flies like one of Howard Hughes' record-setting speed airplanes.
USA Today - 10/10 by Mike Clark Despite the film's sporadic lulls, both director and star are on full beam. The first and third hours of this 20th-century epic are as dazzling as big-scale movies get.
Chicago Tribune - 10/10 by Michael Wilmington Sumptuously exciting, glowing with expertise, seething with life, gorgeously designed and thrillingly articulated.
Baltimore Sun - 10/10 by Michael Sragow If you didn't know that Martin Scorsese made The Aviator, the enthralling new adventure-biography of Howard Hughes, you might think it was the calling card of a neophyte visual genius.
Film Threat - 9/10 by Chris Barsanti This is Scorsese’s "Schindler's List", for better and for worse (mostly the better).
New York Magazine (Vulture) - 9/10 by Ken Tucker The result is an admirably bumpy ride of a biopic, a rare one that leaves you feeling not safe but bracingly unsettled.
Portland Oregonian - 9/10 by Shawn Levy The Aviator, though, if not prime Scorsese, is the closest thing in a long time to the old Scorsese. What a splendid year-end gift!
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 9/10 by William Arnold It's not his (Scorsese) best film, but it's his most accessible and most thoroughly entertaining.
New York Post - 8/10 by Lou Lumenick The movie equivalent of a lavish coffee-table book, a love letter to the Golden Age of Hollywood from one of its foremost students.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 8/10 by Liam Lacey Running at about three hours, The Aviator is long, and the momentum occasionally flags. The depiction of Hughes's first mental breakdown feels a little obsessive-compulsive itself.
San Francisco Chronicle - 8/10 by Mick LaSalle The Aviator has a hole in its center, and Scorsese fills it the only way he can, with spectacle. He makes The Aviator colorful and entertaining from beginning to end. There are worse things.
Charlotte Observer - 8/10 by Lawrence Toppman Martin Scorsese understands one character better than any other American director: the man who rises in the world to wealth or prominence without attaining what he wants most. That's why Howard Hughes is an ideal subject for this director.
