By the time Sorcerer gets around to its rain-soaked, rickety-bridge set piece, you'll either be obsessed or fully checked out. Give yourself a chance to pick sides.

First and foremost a lavish entertainment, no matter its brief examination of oil politics.

Slant Magazine

Friedkin's cyclical, almost Kafkaesque insistence that politics revolves around now globalized, corporate power delegating hired guns to do under-the-table bidding across national boundaries announces itself through the soundscape.

...a palpably overlong drama that's rife with superfluous scenes and subplots...

[...] a defiant, mad gesture of a film that features some of the most exhilarating sequences in movie history.

Over the years, a certain mystique has surrounded Friedkin's dark tale, as is so often the case with lost films. Unlike many of them, though, Sorcerer delivers.

It's easy to be repelled by the film's relentless bleakness, but it's even easier to be entranced by its immense scale, impeccable craft and astonishing suspense.

Breathtaking in its cinematography, production design and sound work, Sorcerer is a worthy contender for the film with the most suspenseful set-pieces in Hollywood history - if such an arbitrary title existed.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Friedkin's Sorcerer is just as gripping and spine-tingling an adventure film as The Wages of Fear and, at times, surpasses the original film with breathtaking photography and a superb use of sound

Friedkin's maldit analysis of The Wages of Fear retains Clouzot's perverse punchline and adds plenty of its own

It's rare that a remake lives up to the original upon which it was based, but "Sorcerer" is that exceptional movie.

An existential suspense movie, Sorcerer is a masterpiece, and one of Friedkin's best.

Though not a patch on the Clouzot movie, it is still rather gripping, the photography is superb, there is an excellent use of sound and an eerie electronic score by Tangerine Dream.
