Washington Post
Hackman anchors the movie with a performance of remarkable control. You see his hurt in his glances at his shoes, his little phony chuckle; you can feel him carrying his secret -- it's a rage held together with rubber bands. This is the Hackman of "The Conversation," not "The French Connection." [27 Feb 1987, Style, p.c1] Full Review

Chicago Tribune
There is enough intelligence and craftsmanship in the execution of Hoosiers to make it seem, if not exactly fresh, at least respectably entertaining. [27 Feb 1987, Friday, p.A] Full Review
David Sterritt
Christian Science Monitor
Gene Hackman is solid as the hero, and Dennis Hopper does his best screen work ever. [6 Mar 1987, Arts & Leisure, p.23] Full Review
Elvis Mitchell
The New York Times
This film's very lack of surprise and sophistication accounts for a lot of its considerable charm. Full Review
Mike Clark
USA Today
This is one of the best re-creations ever of the early-'50s Midwest. [11 Sept 1987, Life, p.3D] Full Review
