  • Roger Ebert

    It's a close call here. I guess I recommend the movie because the dramatic scenes are worth it. But if some studio executive came along and made Stone cut his movie down to two hours, I have the strangest feeling it wouldn't lose much of substance and might even play better.

  • David Sterritt

    The characters are hardly original...but Stone puts them into play with his usual fever-pitch gusto, producing what's probably the most heart-pounding gridiron movie ever made.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Peter Stack

    Features convincing, often soaring, performances by a savvy cast that must have gotten adrenaline shots administered by Stone himself.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    The film's cumulative effect is as exhausting as it is exciting.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Steve Simels

    Stone handles his huge ensemble cast extremely well.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    The director has created a slick, newer-than-new, faster-than-fast entertainment to end all entertainments.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Sean Means

    Big, bold, brash and occasionally brilliant.

    Film.com Full Review
  • Tom Keogh

    The kind of minor work that may very well speak greater volumes about (Stone's) thoughts and feelings right now than another masterpiece would.

    Film.com Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    (Stone's) most accessible and purely enjoyable film in years.

    Variety Full Review
  • Jack Mathews

    While the football sequences are carefully constructed, the sensation we get from the blizzard of images and teeth-jarring sound effects is of having our head used as the football.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Jay Carr

    Far too long, but its rambunctiousness is engaging, propelled by Stone's virtuosic quick-cutting.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Noel Murray

    After establishing the AFFA’s complex, corrupt social structure, Stone and Logan wimp out considerably in the second half of Any Given Sunday, piling on the sports-melodrama clichés.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • David Ansen

    Stone creates such a sizzling, raunchy, vital world that the cliches almost seem new.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • William Arnold

    As always with Stone, the film has some gritty performances and a certain likable audacity.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Mary Elizabeth Williams

    Stone is an undeniably stylish director, and his talent for conveying intense emotion is well put to use here. But more often Stone's in-your-face technique is as exhausting as his steroid-enhanced players.

    Salon.com Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    This energetic and diverting sports soap opera throws a few head fakes in the direction of an iconoclastic examination of the dark side of professional football.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Just watching the trailer for Oliver Stone's new football epic a few weeks back left me with a grating headache; watching the whole sweaty film practically put me in the ICU.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • J. Hoberman

    Like a visual concussion.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    For much of the movie, the kinetic furor of the game sequences helps camouflage the weaknesses of a screenplay that is a mechanically contrived series of power struggles.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    It's about as deep as electronic white noise.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Lisa Alspector

    By the time the manic camera slows down to reveal the back stories of the characters, everyone's motives are either moot or redundant.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    A football epic on performance enhancers that may be more flagrantly flawed, more shockingly predictable and just plain cornier than its rickety predecessors.

    San Francisco Examiner Full Review
  • Robert Wilonsky

    A football film made by a man who apparently has seen little of the game outside of movies, and not very good ones at that.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    There's scarcely a scene in which the actors, action and sound track aren't cranked up to maximum intensity.
