Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
The movie is directed with efficiency by Michael Apted (Coal Miner's Daughter) who knows that pacing is indispensable to a procedural.
TV Guide Magazine - Unnamed
Uneven but sometimes fascinating murder mystery.
The Associated Press - Unnamed
Michael Apted's direction keeps the tension high most of the time, and Dennis Potter's screenplay ably wends through the very complex plot that has but a few loose ends. [13 Dec 1983]
Variety - Unnamed
There's enough menace and romance in Gorky Park to appeal to many, especially those helped by the memory of Martin Cruz Smith's successful novel.
The New York Times - Janet Maslin
On the whole, Mr. Apted's approach to the material is archly effective, making for a crisp, intricate thriller, well able to hold an audience's interest.
