|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert It is one of those miraculous entertainments that achieves its immediate goals and keeps climbing toward a higher summit.
Jason Anderson A film whose depth, breadth and sheer momentum make it largely irresistible.
James Berardinelli Boyle's feature draws the viewer in, immersing him in a fast-moving, engaging narrative featuring a protagonist who is so likeable it's almost unfair. The movie has moments of heartbreak and tragedy but it is ultimately uplifting and contains pretty much all the instances an audience will want.
C. Fuchs Operating on a number of levels, all of which work terrifically, Slumdog Millionaire is a superb piece of filmmaking that reassures viewers — usually bombarded with mediocre to horrific cinematic offerings — that movies can still surprise, enthuse and completely capture one's heart and mind. It's a must-see.
Tomatometer Visually dazzling and emotionally resonant, Slumdog Millionaire is a film that's both entertaining and powerful.
