    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    This mesmerizing mind-bender ought to prove two things: (1) Robert Pattinson really can act; (2) Director David Cronenberg never runs from a challenge. show more

    There's not really a movie there, nothing that sustains itself from scene to scene and nothing that's worth watching from beginning to end. show more

    Robert Pattinson must be hellbent on escaping the world of sparkly-skinned undead to take on the starring role in the leaden, obtuse and ultra-pretentious Cosmopolis. show more

    Conventional it is not. Engrossing it is. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    There are plenty of ideas to gnaw on, given that Cronenberg has adapted Don DeLillo's intense novel of a New York on the verge of dystopian breakdown. But frustratingly bland work from lead Robert Pattinson results in an awfully watery stew. show more

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    After a strong run of films during the past decade, David Cronenberg blows a tire with Cosmopolis. show more

    Pattinson does a quietly marvelous thing in finding vulnerability in Eric without making it seem like softness. show more

    Diamond-hard and dazzlingly brilliant, David Cronenberg's film plays like a deeply perverse, darkly comic successor to Videodrome. show more

    Cosmopolis may be a cerebral mood piece, but it is loaded with strong performances that connect on an emotional level. show more

    The trouble with Cosmopolis, David Cronenberg's faithful-to-a-fault adaptation from Don DeLillo's 2003 novel, is that it's more metaphor than meat. show more

    What a disaster! I can\'t believe I sat through the whole thing! This was an utterly pretentious, psuedo-intellectual, contemporary Shakespeare wannabe, train wreck. Yes, I hated it.

    Where do people get off at writing scrips with no ending? right at the climax the movie just stops...credits...Somehow, I still loved every minute of it. I just appreciate closure is all.

    The trouble with Cosmopolis was everything. Poor Acting by twilight star and an extremely boaring movie. Near the end I was disappointed he didn\'t shoot himself fatally. That is when my friend and I left. Should have walked out after the first 15 minutes but I was hoping it had to improve but alas, it didn\'t. Can\'t believe all the good reviews.

    This must be the anthem for the OWS movement who"didn't build that.

    Great movie! So not the typical love/romance/hero type stutf. A huge and real statement about government, money and human beings. Unusual, but well worth seeing.

    The first movie I have ever seen attempting to imitate the \"stream of conciousness\" a la James Joyce in cinematic form .I was temted to walk out after the first thirty minutes but I continujed to withstand the desire til the bitter end.
