The picture is cloudy in intent.

Robbins, who also wrote the script, is no Truman Capote, let alone a Victor Hugo, and his film trips up constantly on indecisiveness about what it is he's trying to say.

This feels like a giant cop-out.

Absorbing, surprising, technically superb and worth talking about for a long time afterward

Dead Man Walking could easily be manipulative or exploitative, but it's neither. Instead, this is hard-hitting drama that neither accepts nor offers quarter.

It takes a truly great film to be so passionate about its viewpoint while still acknowledging and dignifying those who feel differently.

Dead Man Walking is a provocative, well-made film on a surprisingly intelligent level.

To say that the movie is neither for nor against capital punishment is disingenuous. Still, this is a fine and painful effort overall.

Dead Man Walking is one courageous film, one of the very best of its time.

Its objectivity is what makes it so controversial and fascinating.

It probably isn't for everyone, but Dead Man Walking is a tale that needs to be heard and that will likely provide material for hours of philosophical debate.

This important film exposes the cruelty of death by lethal injection and shows that hate is the worst prison of all.
