It's a wildly uneven enterprise, overall.

"Before Midnight" is heartbreaking, but not because of Jesse and Celine. It's the filmmakers' passions that seem to have cooled.

Admirers of the first two films will feel pangs of nostalgia and a residual warmth for its charismatic leads, but as an extension to the series it feels forced and unnecessary.

Before Midnight feels like the natural extension of the series, and will be everything fans of it could have hoped for.

I found it comforting, even cathartic, to know that even 'the most perfect couple' can have its moments of stress and strain when put to the test by the everyday world.

Will Leitch

Like the first two films, it reflects the real world in a way that seems almost preternatural. It's just that, here, the real world is a harsher, more disappointing place.

The Playlist

While not the most fun or sexiest film in this trilogy -- do you want to watch mom and dad fight for 30 minutes straight? -- it's easily the most necessary, and it's the logical extension of where this relationship story should and must go.

It remains as engaging, illuminating, honest and funny as its predecessor; here's hoping we revisit Jesse and CÚline in another decade or so.

Before Midnight is one of those dialogue-driven indie dramas that make you appreciate the medium of film.

We Got This Covered

Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy's chemistry is off the charts in Before Midnight, a brutally honest look into the relationships of today which will have you flipping from happy to sad with a simple change in conversational tone.

It is a bold work that could come only from a strong trust and faith forged over time between the three collaborators.

Final Cut on Film

Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy come off as if they were conjoined for the past nine years in the gloriously-acted, hypnotically-conversational conclusion to the Before Sunrise trilogy -- the year's first legit contender for awards season love.

Truth is beauty, and beauty truth, but they're not necessarily romantic nine years into a serious committed relationship with two kids in the backseat.

It's a study in relationships, and will leave plenty for couples to chat about afterwards...let's hope your conversations feel as authentic as the ones in the film.

Finding romance is easy. Staying together is hard. Making a movie this warm, funny, and rigorously truthful about lovers trying to remain partners is even harder.

Irish Times

None of the films is faultless in itself, but, tinted with complementary tones, the complete cycle comes as close to perfection as any trilogy in cinema history.

The List

Linklater makes use of unshowy direction and natural improvisation from his leads, who both get co-writing credits, creating a remarkably unforced picture of love kindled and rekindled.

Empire Magazine

A bit tarter than its predecessors, but not skimping on their woozy, chatty charm, this perfectly played, gently incisive film is a welcome new chapter in one of cinema's most beguiling ongoing romances.

There's not a hint of melodrama or falsity in the Before series.
