Brubaker Reviews

Matt Brunson
Creative Loafing

The first half-hour is powerful stuff, but after Brubaker reveals his true identity, the movie begins to falter, with the one-dimensional nature of the characters (particularly the warden himself) eventually stripping the story of any dramatic charge.

I never felt that I was wasting my time watching 'Brubaker,' only that it could have been a more dramatic and taut prison movie-which is odd, because it's directed by Stuart Rosenberg ('Cool Hand Luke').

Inspired by fact, this politically conscious prison drama is well written (script was Oscar nominated), but only decently acted by Redford, who might not have been the right choice.

It was hard to sit through two hours of such brutality and misery and say you enjoyed it.

Redford is the main attraction, obviously, even though his princely good looks -- like the movie's 'idealistic crusader against the Establishment' earnestness -- are almost too much of a good thing.

Apollo Guide

Robert Redford, in a surprise acting tour de force, really stretches his style and mannerisms to become Henry Brubaker.

Robert Redford puts in a stellar performance as a zealous prison reformer in this meditation on the ardor of idealism.

Reeling Reviews

A good, not great, movie that reps a solid, mid-career performance by Redford.
