Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Though well-acted, well-written and well-directed, it's still an unpleasant watch that never gets beyond being routine.

Neither glamorising nor moralising, Rush deserves plaudits for its gritty, no-holds-barred take on drugs. The intelligent performances are the icing on the cake.

To be really powerful or tragic they need to be a lot less hackneyed and directed with more inspiration than this merely adequate effort.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

A melodramatic, if gritty, Hollywood muddle.

Head-swiveling directorial debut of Lili Fini Zanuck lays out a tough masculine scenario [based on Kim Wozencraft's book] in a way that is always emotionally riveting.

Leigh is effective as always, but has little to chew on; Patric has even less.

Zanuck's debut feature fails to keep its dramatic sightlines clear.

Mr. Patric and Ms. Leigh are able to make Jim and Kristen as grimly memorable as the drug culture that threatens to engulf them both.

Patrick Byrne
Apollo Guide

A gritty look at drug addiction, moral consequences and ethically questionable scenarios from the perspective of a couple of undercover cops in the deep south of Texas.

Despite the false notes and grinding bleakness, the film's insider savvy makes for pungent drama.

Chris Hicks
Deseret News, Salt Lake City

All of this is bolstered by solid performances, especially impressive since the characters are woefully underwritten.

It peaks way before the movie's over. You're caught in a slow but steady decline, an unwanted comedown.

It's a tough movie, scathingly violent, intense and emotionally raw; like a swaggering bar brawler, it never backs down an inch.

The movie depends on two strong performances for its effects, and gets them from Jason Patric and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
