A richly composed and well acted ensemble piece...

Stone's blend of mayhem and sensuality-which doesn't shy away from the eroticism of athletes-is a refreshing alternative to the solemnity of most sports dramas.

Stone isn't interested in merely bashing modern football: Any Given Sunday looks at the best and worst of the sport. [Blu-ray]

January 26, 2009's hard to tell if Stone was making a serious sports movie here or a parody of a sports movie.

Almost three hours of this jitter deteriorates from bravura filmmaking to annoying mannerism, and Any Given Sunday ends up less than the sum of its many, often interesting parts.

Hit and miss, certainly, but intense stuff.

You'd have to be a very undiscriminating football die-hard to get anything out of it.

With few surprises and little to say in this film, it is unclear why Oliver Stone was interested in making it in the first place.

A meathead burlesque.

Stone's hilariously broad and belabored critique of American sports culture ...

This isn't the best film by Oliver Stone, but it is a first-rate job nonetheless.

Os excessos visuais de Stone (tão bem utilizados em seus trabalhos anteriores) e o fraco terceiro ato, mais conveniente do que o apropriado, comprometem o resultado final.

Any Given Sunday doesn't disappoint from an acting standpoint; with a cast like this it could hardly miss.

January 16, 2003
A solidly-acted action-drama hybrid whose cartoonish asides largely undermine the greater subtext.

Ultimately, Any Given Sunday will disappoint football fans and won't win any new converts to the game, and worse, is just a painful film to watch

...the movie remains watchable if only for Pacino's amazing performance and the action-packed football sequences.

Never has so much talent been wasted in such cinematic chaos.

Oliver Stone's take on the world of pro football scores a few field goals, but is extremely short of a touchdown.
