Movie Reviews

Chicago Tribune - 10/10 by Michael Wilmington Sumptuously exciting, glowing with expertise, seething with life, gorgeously designed and thrillingly articulated.
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.
The New Yorker - 10/10 by David Denby Brilliantly entertaining.
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.
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.
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/10 by Roger Ebert This is one of the year's best films.
Rolling Stone - 9/10 by Peter Travers When it flies, it soars.
Premiere - 9/10 by Glenn Kenny So breathtaking is the action.
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!
Newsweek - 9/10 by David Ansen DiCaprio is astonishing.
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.
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.
