The Dissolve

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]

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

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

Entertainment Today

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

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

Boxoffice Magazine

Amidst all the drama, there are comedic moments, such as the Sharks' version of the self-congratulatory end zone dance the Dirty Bird, the metal-vs.-rap locker room debate and the loose crocodile in the shower.

Empire Magazine

Despite the film's multifarious faults, which also include a truly rotten cameo from Stone himself as a sports commentator, there can be no argument that this is one of the most visually exciting experiences you will have this year...

Any Given Sunday may fall on its face a few times during the game, but wouldn't you rather watch a team going recklessly for the touchdown than playing safely for time?

It appears there is something that Oliver Stone does take seriously, besides Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories, and that is football.

It's super revved up, high-intensity tedium all right, but tedium nonetheless.
