Premiere - Glenn Kenny
Black Book is Verhoeven's best film since "RoboCop": audacious, smart, shamelessly entertaining.
The Hollywood Reporter - Ray Bennett
It succeeds on almost all fronts. The epic film is a high-octane adventure rooted in fact with a raft of arresting characters, big action sequences and twists and turns galore.
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers
Just for starters, no movie about the Dutch Resistance during World War II has any right to be this wildly entertaining, not to mention this provocative and potently erotic.
ReelViews - James Berardinelli
Black Book possesses a taut, exciting script that throws surprises at the viewer on a regular basis.
TV Guide Magazine - Maitland McDonagh
While Rachel's story is fiction, many of its incidents are rooted in historical events carefully researched by Soeteman and the film's briskly staged action and stunning reversals of fortune ensure that its two and a half hours fly by.
