March 27, 2001
In his eager passion to fill Amores Perros with explosive imagery, Iñarritu nearly drowns his audience in visual excess.
| Original Score: 3/5
March 27, 2001
Punishingly overlong.
March 12, 2001
The level of violence is so gratuitous and so disgusting that I picked up my coat several times and started to walk out, something I almost never do.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
March 7, 2001
Succumbs to the dangers of such a fractured narrative practice: too much bravado, not enough soul.
March 8, 2001
Apart from the first story, the film just doesn't live up to its promise.
April 11, 2001
Almost entirely a surface phenomenon, fascinating to look at but pretty empty beneath a raucously mesmerizing exterior.

May 15, 2001
The structure lacks purpose, the film struggles to justify its two-and-a-half-hour running time and the faint-hearted might find it a little gory.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 1, 2001
The filmmakers offer little hope for these characters.
September 28, 2017
Gripping but gory subtitled drama isn't for the squeamish.

[Inarritu's] triumph - helped by a cast of unknown actors who more than meet the standards of Hollywood venismo - is to give so lurid a sequence of events the force of reality; and make a story of relentless bleakness, oddly uplifting.

There aren't many films coming out of Hollywood that work on this many levels.
April 13, 2001
The work of a born filmmaker.

It may not have won the Oscar, but this is ... an ambitious and thrilling work.

Ferocious and beautiful.
April 19, 2001
You know you're in the hands of a gifted storyteller.

It has an underlying warmth that elevates it to greatness.

February 13, 2001
Divided into three chapters, pic is cunningly constructed and, until near the end, briskly paced.
October 29, 2002
It's good and good-looking and features one of the best soundtracks in years ... but it's also slick and schematic, weak on feeling and overly indebted to Tarantino.
