Village Voice - J. Hoberman
Bana, who appears in nearly every shot, talking all the while, gives a remarkably mercurial performance.
Miami Herald - Rene Rodriguez
An impressionistic portrait of the seductive nature of evil.
Philadelphia Inquirer - Steven Rea
Its dabs of dark comedy and stabs of gore, still rings with a sense of the real. It's electric-charged.
L.A. Weekly - Manohla Dargis
Grotesquely violent, horribly funny.
New Times (L.A.) - Andy Klein
Dominik's stylistic choices are savvy, but what really makes the movie work is Bana's extraordinary performance as Chopper.
