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.

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.

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.

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.

Roger Ebert

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

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