Carlos is a smart piece of filmmaking that delivers thrilling sequences and doesn't pander -- grounding its idealistic character in a sea of contradictions.

Una película narrada con mucho rigor y nervio, que logra reconstruir a la perfección la atmósfera y las tensiones geo-políticas de la época en la que está ambientada. Gran trabajo del venezolano Edgar Ramírez en el rol titular.

It's obviously not meant to be funny, but in a way it is.

it's this downtime that finally, finally begins to show some cracks in Carlos' armor. It slowly becomes clear that Carlos is nothing but surface.

The term "epic" often gets bandied around to describe movies that don't really fit the description. But Olivier Assayas' Carlos is the real deal...

Carlos was like a terrorist version of James Bond, a high-living, jet-setting playboy terrorist for hire.

It manages to deliver a steady stream of action thrills even as it reconsiders the international terrorism of the 1960s and '70s for lessons important today.

A terrifying portrait of an egomaniac who demands absolute obedience, and craves it even more when his power and relevance are drained away.

Uncut Magazine [UK]

Assayas, hopping the globe from bloody episode to bloody episode with little pause for reflection, offers a concise history in how radical political violence played out across Europe during the final Cold War years.

The film is a fascinating, fictionalized, notably sexually charged account of the two-decade reign of terror masterminded and carried out by this lone radical "soldier."

Even in it's watered-down 2 1/2 hour cut, CARLOS remains a stunning piece of work. This is a star-making performance for Edgar Ramirex.

It's a subtle, ultimately staggering portrayal of a bloody-minded ideologue who convinced only himself.

Directed by the eclectic Olivier Assayas, it's a three-part made-for-TV movie that offers compelling watching but not much insight.
