Austin Chronicle
An adequate, inoffensive thriller that, every so often, shows itself to be a little smarter than it needs to be even if it isn't often enough to make this thriller anything more than average. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Delivers the entertaining goods without fuss or frills. Full Review
Elvis Mitchell
The New York Times
Timing does no favors for The Chamber, the John Grisham death row drama that arrives on the heels of a better death row film (''Dead Man Walking'') and a better Grisham adaptation (''A Time to Kill''). But this film's also-ran aspects are partly offset by Gene Hackman's superlative performance. Full Review
Emanuel Levy
An intelligently proficient movie that works more effectively as a family drama than a legal thriller. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Mechanical and artificial, and tells you what to think. Full Review
