USA Today
Hour not only acknowledges the attacks -- they're a running theme. Lee opens his movie with a shot of the beaming blue spotlights that mark where the twin towers once stood. Full Review

Washington Post
Lee has created that rarity in filmmaking: a movie we need, right now. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
If 25th Hour does not quite work as a plausible and coherent story, it produces a wrenching, dazzling succession of moods. Full Review
David Edelstein
At its best, 25th Hour is a melancholy tone poem -- But the movie is also muddled by its own ambitions. There is simply no connection between the themes of Benioff's screenplay and 9/11, and every time Lee over-inflates the story, he loses its real pulse. Full Review
David Rooney
Lapses into melodramatic self-importance and gratuitous stylistic flourishes that take the audience out of the action -- are outweighed by the steadily amplified emotional power of this ultimately moving drama. Full Review
