Derek Elley
This well-played, often very sparky dramedy about the shenanigans in a northern brass band composed of miners threatened with pit closure gets a bad attack of social realism in the latter stages that rocks the crowded craft. Full Review

Washington Post
Brassed Off gets bogged down in sentimentality; and that political agenda is spread on thick. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Brassed Off! is a traditional feel-good motion picture with an element of social commentary thrown in for good measure. Full Review
John Anderson
Los Angeles Times
The difficulty is that Brassed Off operates at an emotional pitch that starts at a crescendo and never relents--rendering almost everything equally inconsequential. Full Review
Lisa Schwarzbaum
Entertainment Weekly
There's a double meaning in the title of this folksy, relentlessly political, heavy-handed story, written and directed by Mark Herman and set among the coal mines of Yorkshire, England, in 1992. Full Review
