Not politically correct, but unless you ignore the critics you will never come to understand the brilliance of this soon-to-be underground classic .

The Hollywood Reporter
The action that follows is as broad and unconvincing as the characters involved: director George Ratliff manages to turn even dignified Ciaran Hinds into a ham. Full Review
The New York Times
As the plot swerves toward an almost crazy conclusion, there is the inkling of a strong, interesting idea here, about how some versions of modern religion are predicated on the systematic denial of reality, but Salvation Boulevard is itself too loosely tethered to the actual world to make the point with the necessary vigor or acuity.

New York Daily News
Loosely adapting Larry Beinhart's darker novel, Ratliff and co-writer Douglas Stone indulge in so many cheap shots and caricatures, their disdain drips off the screen. Full Review
Without the humor, the stereotypes that define these characters aren't satirical; they're just mean-spirited and dull. Full Review
Wall Street Journal
The movie transforms a dim idea - "Elmer Gantry" lite - into comedy that's dead in the water and as dull as it is broad. Full Review
