Chicago Reviews

Matt Brunson
Creative Loafing

Not only for theater aficionados, Chicago is a musical for people who don't even like musicals, weaving its deliriously dark tale with enough cyanide-laced cynicism to win over folks who wouldn't know Oklahoma! from Oh! Calcutta!

Chicago becomes less of a literal skewering of how celebrity criminals manipulate a rigged game, and more of a pure fantasy, not meant to be taken seriously.

As sentimental as a plywood casket, Chicago has satirical bite and a mean wit that somehow never obscures its characters' unlikely likability.

With performers as good as these and the freshness of Bill Condon's screenplay and Marshall's direction, there's really very little wrong with Chicago. What it lacks is something intangible -- heat.

It's refreshing to see a robust, streamlined adaptation that drips with steamy sex appeal while staying true to the original.

It took more than a quarter of a century to bring the 1975 musical Chicago to the screen, but it was worth the wait to get it right.

Despite the hype and an expected bonanza at the box office, the film is actually a disappointment. Quite simply, it is edited to death.

Rob Marshall's screen version of the near-venerable show looks great, in its razzly-dazzly neo-Fosse way, and sounds good, especially when Renee Zellweger's gorgeous Roxie Hart is singing her heart out.

From the incredible performances to the outstanding songs to all of the technical marvels behind and in front of the camera, there isn't a single weak link to be found.

The net effect of the incessant dazzle is depressing.

The song-and-dance numbers are calisthenic but unspectacular, with too much fast cutting, and the tone throughout is harmlessly facetious.

The film has punch, but it never really conveys the delicious, redeeming sense that life can be lived on the hoof.

Chicago has so much razzle-dazzle that viewers may end up both raised and dazed. It's remorselessly inventive, trying anything fast and sassy to keep you watching.

Considering that none of the three leads is a pro singer or dancer, Chicago is surprisingly a brassy, enjoyable movie musical, with at least a couple of risque production numbers.

Chicago is a stunning show stopper, a seamless integration of toe-tapping tunes, riveting routines in the wicked and wonderful seedy side of the swing city.

Here, finally, is a movie musical made by people who know what they're doing.

Each musical number builds to such a frantic climax that the audience is nearly moved to applaud the actors on screen.
