More Info:
  • Rex Reed

    A mildly entertaining but well acted, sumptuously photographed and smartly written comedy with dark undertones about culinary addiction that can only be called “delicious.” See it and then check your cholesterol.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Jody Mitori

    With such a strong cast, the film has the right ingredients but it doesn’t quite make a perfect meal.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    It’s not pretty, but it captures something that few cooking movies do: reality.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    An imperfectly executed but still perfectly enjoyable film.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    Cooper’s charm, imposing post-American Sniper physique, and proficient French carry the movie, propped up by a very strong supporting cast... whose roles mostly consist of fascinated or exasperated reaction shots. It just doesn’t carry the movie anywhere interesting.

  • Chris Nashawaty

    Just when you think you know where Burnt is headed, there’s an underhanded twist about halfway in. And it’s almost enough to set the movie right.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    Since John Wells is a director of some conscience and screenwriter Steven Knight is in fact capable of first-rate work, Burnt packs some minor surprises and attractive details along its way.

    RogerEbert.com Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    The real issue is that everything about Adam’s journey feels half digested and tossed back up. We’ve seen it before. It was better the first time.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    What follows is a decently structured story of personal demons and culinary competition, with a couple of nice twists thrown in, but it’s built with materials that at this point in the life cycle of this genre are mighty shopworn.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Burnt is mildly diverting.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    Cooper swaggers as convincingly as always, the food-prep montages are mesmerizing, and we even get a couple of solid twists and an education on the sous-vide trend.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Director John Wells dices the action, even the simplest conversation, into five harried shots when one would suffice. The many food-prep montages are cut and paced to the same numbing rhythm.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    As an often cliché-riddled tale of redemption on the big screen, Burnt is the equivalent of a sleek, well-lit, trendy restaurant serving up a mildly creative dishes on an otherwise predictable menu.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    The food, it must be said, is beautiful. (Mario Batali and Marcus Wareing were consultants on the film.) And Cooper, despite the shortcomings of the role as written, goes all in. So does Miller. This should be a better movie than it is.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    There’s never any doubt that redemption is the end-game for Jones, but the claim for his saving is weak sauce; the case against him has been too emphatically, if unintentionally, argued.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Burnt isn’t a bad movie, but the melodrama is overwrought and overdone, the romance warmed over and the “Cocktail” formula shaken, stirred and utterly played.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    The film’s haphazard construction is made all the more frustrating because somewhere in this material is a much more resonant picture.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Jon Frosch

    Cooper can do this kind of arrogant-but-irresistible golden boy shtick in his sleep, but that doesn't make it any less pleasurable to watch. Flashing his baby blues and a fiery temper, the actor gives a fully engaged performance that almost makes us want to forgive the movie’s laziness. Almost.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    Every thoughtful story beat and every well-observed character moment happens with such predictability and slick professionalism that the whole project seems smothered in bland sweetness.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Burnt deals less with the food itself than the way it drives Adam to the brink of insanity. Yet it falls short of generating any real urgency surrounding that situation.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Angie Errigo

    A tasteless concoction - one gay character is particularly misjudged - that's instantly forgettable.

    Empire Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The movie gets duller and less focused as it wears on.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Although John Wells’ dramedy is energized by its mouth-watering montages and an unsurprisingly fierce lead turn from Cooper, Steven Knight’s script pours on the acid but holds the depth, forcing its fine actors (including Sienna Miller and Daniel Bruhl) to function less as an ensemble than as a motley sort of intervention group.

    Variety Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Both Adam and the stakes are so low, it’s like watching 100 minutes of a slug trying to crawl over a twig.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Burnt ultimately feels like those sous-vide bags that Adam finds so worthy of mockery: trapped in plastic, with the air sucked out of it.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Brad Wheeler

    Although rich in cast, the bad-boy-chef dramedy Burnt is unremarkable otherwise.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    A cheerless and unappetizing plate of piffle that deserves to be smashed against a wall or at least sent back to the kitchen.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Elise Nakhnikian

    Everything in the by-the-numbers script signals that Adam must transform himself from and abusive tyrant in the kitchen to the head of a loving and fully functional family.
