James Berardinelli
Easy isn't much of an acting challenge, but Washington's mix of charm and intensity creates an appealing personae. Full Review
Janet Maslin
The New York Times
In the process of drawing audiences into the twists and turns of a knotty detective tale, Mr. Franklin and his cinematographer, Tak Fujimoto, open up an enticing and languorous lost world. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
It's the film's glowing visual qualities, a striking performance by Denzel Washington and the elegant control Carl Franklin has over it all that create the most exotic crime entertainment of the season. Full Review
