Rolling Stone - Peter Travers
As a thriller, The Recruit is merely an entertaining ride. But remember: Nothing is what it seems. It's the subtext -- two actors from different generations faking each other out with skill and affection -- that counts.

L.A. Weekly - Chuck Wilson
Visibly uninspired, Pacino gives a perfunctory performance -- though surely he must have looked over at Farrell and been reminded of himself 30 years ago, all jacked-up and beautiful, like a stallion at the gate.

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
It's the kind of movie you can sit back and enjoy, as long as you don't make the mistake of thinking too much.

ReelViews - James Berardinelli
There's nothing excessively problematical with The Recruit that excising the final fifteen minutes wouldn't cure.

Salon - Stephanie Zacharek
Just the latest forgettable thriller that might have been enjoyable if only its conclusion lived up to its windup.
