This is both the movie in which [Russell] is most faithful to the ideas and tone of his material, and one of his very worst films.

It becomes tiresome and runs out of gas way before the conclusion.

This 1975 film's inventiveness begins to flag about halfway through, but by then it's a relief. If only Wagner could have lived to see this.

Overlong, over-indulgent, overdone.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Fans of the Who beware. Ken Russell applies his rococo outpourings to Pete Townshend's rock opera and botches not only the visuals but the fine score.

The effect is exhilarating and exhausting.

The core essence of Tommy lies in the quivering carriage of Ann-Margret and her heroic personification of Russell's funhouse directorial approach.

Trippy rock opera with drug references and sexual imagery.

An anything-goes phantasmagoria that pushes at the borders of good taste and good sense.

Russell reveals that even such a liberating relation to pop can itself become commodified.

Quirky, although not altogether successful, cinematic reading of The Who's rock opera.

Quite the gaudy mind-blower.
