Washington Post
A taut, high-velocity film that departs from the action flick template by having actual ideas. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
Mr. Washington's dry-ice grandeur -- the predator's reflexes contrasting with a pensive mouth -- deserves regard, and his powerhouse virtuosity will almost guarantee him an Oscar nomination. Full Review
Bob Graham
San Francisco Chronicle
It is so propulsive so much of the time, it almost looks as if it's going to go the distance. If Washington & Co. don't quite manage to bring it home, the getting there sure is something. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
With its unflinching style, Training Day can be hard to sit through at times. But it's worth the discomfort for the adrenaline rush of the plot and Washington's compelling performance. Full Review
David Edelstein
If nothing else, Training Day is a gorgeous pedestal for Denzel Washington. Full Review
