Often graceful, sometimes brilliant, Poetic is an absorbing, amusing symphony of sound and image; it also gives equal weight to its male and female characters. Full Review

It's safe, and it's smart, and even though it's lightweight compared to "Boyz" and bound to disappoint a lot of Singleton's admirers, Justice demonstrates that Singleton is more than a one-shot wonder. [23 Jul 1993] Full Review

It's more a brave movie than it is a good one, but at least Singleton has faced the unknown. And he deserves credit for the attempt. Full Review

Some of Poetic Justice is quite good, if unspectacular, and the dialogue has a consistent ring of truth. Full Review
