March 27, 2001
In his eager passion to fill Amores Perros with explosive imagery, Iñarritu nearly drowns his audience in visual excess.

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.

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.

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.
February 6, 2010
Dozens of shoddy imitators have done nothing to disguise the wit of its narrative construction.
