July 6, 2012
Though well-acted, well-written and well-directed, it's still an unpleasant watch that never gets beyond being routine.

April 9, 2008
Neither glamorising nor moralising, Rush deserves plaudits for its gritty, no-holds-barred take on drugs. The intelligent performances are the icing on the cake.
April 9, 2008
To be really powerful or tragic they need to be a lot less hackneyed and directed with more inspiration than this merely adequate effort.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 9, 2008
A melodramatic, if gritty, Hollywood muddle.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 9, 2008
Head-swiveling directorial debut of Lili Fini Zanuck lays out a tough masculine scenario [based on Kim Wozencraft's book] in a way that is always emotionally riveting.
April 9, 2008
Leigh is effective as always, but has little to chew on; Patric has even less.
Top Critic
June 24, 2006
Zanuck's debut feature fails to keep its dramatic sightlines clear.
May 20, 2003
Mr. Patric and Ms. Leigh are able to make Jim and Kristen as grimly memorable as the drug culture that threatens to engulf them both.

April 12, 2002
A gritty look at drug addiction, moral consequences and ethically questionable scenarios from the perspective of a couple of undercover cops in the deep south of Texas.
Full Review | Original Score: 87/100
May 12, 2001
Despite the false notes and grinding bleakness, the film's insider savvy makes for pungent drama.
January 1, 2000
The movie depends on two strong performances for its effects, and gets them from Jason Patric and Jennifer Jason Leigh.

January 1, 2000
It's a tough movie, scathingly violent, intense and emotionally raw; like a swaggering bar brawler, it never backs down an inch.
January 1, 2000
It peaks way before the movie's over. You're caught in a slow but steady decline, an unwanted comedown.
January 1, 2000
It rings true.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
January 1, 2000
All of this is bolstered by solid performances, especially impressive since the characters are woefully underwritten.
