Andrea Chase
Killer Movie Reviews

A subtle, deeply disturbing film with a performance by Michael Caine that is a marvel of understated elegance, delivering an emotional punch of prodigious proportions.

My initial reaction was of having seen a great story of political intrigue told well, but as I sit here thinking, levels of depth... slowly begin to open up to me.

Adapts a Graham Greene novel with something approaching economy but far removed from finesse.

'Una tranquila pero recia interpretación de Michael Caine, que realiza uno de sus mejores trabajos en años.'

In so many ways, The Quiet American speaks volumes.

[Caine's] performance is absolutely perfect, a study in restraint and subtlety that should be used as an acting course.

Sydney Morning Herald

Noyce has no trouble convincing us he's made a film for our times. Even better, he's done it without upsetting the climate of the place where all Greene's novels are set, regardless of their actual position on the map.

I must admit that this film flooded my mind with characters so rich and believable that I started to think of them as real human beings.

A smart and gutsy work that argues Americans are prone to repeating the mistakes of history instead of learning from them.

There's an almost great film here.

Forrest Hartman
Reno Gazette-Journal

Like Sunset Boulevard, [this film] starts with a lifeless body, then puts the murder in perspective. It's a good cinematic structure, one perfect for a film that cares less about the crime than the journey toward it.

"The Quiet American" begins in Saigon in 1952. That's its first sign of trouble.

Decent Films Guide

Eliminates the last traces of Greene's religious motifs and focuses entirely on political and interpersonal themes. Yet these are at the heart of Greene's story, so as an adaptation it succeeds where End of the Affair failed.

Blake Davis
KFOR Channel 4 News

It's a political film, but not in the way that an Oliver Stone film is political. Rather, it's political in the way that Casablanca is a movie about politics (it's romantic and entertaining and tells a story about interesting people).

Noyce and the screenwriters have nailed Greene with the kind of accuracy not seen since Carol Reed's two Greene films, The Third Man and Our Man in Havana.

It's Caine who deserves the Best Actor trophy, delivering not only the finest male performance of 2002 but also one of the best of his entire career.

Noyce's direction is glum and sententious.

Michael Caine's subtle, nuanced performance is sublime, and it's the only thing that elevates this movie from dated and pointless costume melodrama.

Steve Rhodes
Internet Reviews

Its mysteries are transparently obvious, and it's too slowly paced to be a thriller. [But it's] worth recommending because of two marvelous performances by Michael Caine and Brendan Fraser.
