Great movie. A must see. The songs and characters come to life and make you feel the music as if you were there.

Variety
Most of the details are right-on in Cadillac Records, though the director's efforts to sell it sometimes steers the film into mawkish or hokey territory. Full Review

The New York Times
This movie is crowded and sprawling, and if it rambles sometimes, that's just fine. Like those big, boxy Caddies (and like Howlin' Wolf, if he did say so himself), it's built for comfort, not for speed. It hums, it purrs and it roars. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
The film features too little about Berry (an engaging Mos Def), who crosses over to great fame. Full Review
Dana Stevens
Slate
One of the strengths of Cadillac Records, written and directed by Darnell Martin, is that it's a movie about music by someone who genuinely seems to enjoy listening to music. Full Review
James Berardinelli
ReelViews
There are plenty of small pleasures to be found throughout Darnell Martin's feature, but a compelling storyline featuring three-dimensional characters is not among them. Full Review
