Movie Reviews

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Alberta) - 10/10 by Brian GibsonAs this 'Southern' turns up the heat, the sense of sadistic oppression, of being looked down on by 'the man,' swelters and burns. The glowering sun eclipses the convict in its hellfire glow. Newman/Luke's knowing smile, though, burns on.
Austin Chronicle - 10/10 by Marjorie BaumgartenOne of the sharpest prison dramas ever, although it's graced with some very humorous portions as well.
Juicy Cerebellum - 10/10 by Alex SandellA masterpiece of justice and the injustice it hides.
Movie Metropolis - 10/10 by James PlathClassic anti-hero story still packs a punch.
Film Threat - 10/10 by Brad LaidmanAn amazing accomplishment by Newman as the best fight man has left in him.
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/10 by Roger EbertLuke is the first Newman character to understand himself well enough to tell us to shove off. He's through risking his neck to make us happy. With this film, Newman completes a cycle of five films over six years, and together they have something to say about the current status of heroism. But Cool Hand Luke does draw together threads from the earlier movies, especially Hombre, and it is a tough, honest film with backbone.
Time Out - 10/10 by Tom MilneA caustically witty look at the American South and its still-surviving chain gangs, with Newman in fine sardonic form as the boss-baiter who refuses to submit and becomes a hero to his fellow-prisoners.
Groucho Reviews - 10/10 by Peter CanavesePreserves a time when one could not only get away with making an allegory with an existential hero, but stock it with an ensemble from the Actors Studio. [Blu-Ray]
Empire Magazine - 10/10 by Kim NewmanOne of those movies you remember Great Moments from.
Combustible Celluloid - 10/10 by Jeffrey M. AndersonCool Hand Luke now seems more like a well-made entertainment than any kind of American masterpiece.
