Any Given Sunday Reviews

September 7, 2011
Full Review | Original Score: B
August 22, 2008
Almost three hours of this jitter deteriorates from bravura filmmaking to annoying mannerism, and Any Given Sunday ends up less than the sum of its many, often interesting parts.
June 24, 2006
A meathead burlesque.
March 19, 2002
Choc-a-bloc with manly blather about sacrifice and honour and rugged individuals pulling together for the greater glory of the team.

Pass the popcorn and then the testosterone.

The film is restless to the point of distraction, and the audio is so pumped up that about a third of the dialogue is unintelligible.

January 1, 2000
Stone's latest isn't his worst, but it's still a mess.
January 1, 2000
A turbocharged and pungently enjoyable take on the sport.
January 1, 2000
[Stone's] most entertaining movie in years.
January 1, 2000
Any Given Sunday has the dubious distinction of being the very first football picture to treat the audience like it's the football.
January 1, 2000
Bombastic, overblown and -- despite its many flaws -- compelling entertainment.
January 1, 2000
Stone is at last in an arena where his penchant for overstatement is a virtue, not a defect.
January 1, 2000
In the end the movie cops out.

January 1, 2000
A visual concussion.
January 1, 2000
Performances are almost all shot through with electricity.
January 1, 2000
Sunday is the latest example of this year's worst movie trend, in which hyperstylist directors attempt to force their way through flawed, poorly developed stories by 'showing their stuff.'
January 1, 2000
Yes, it's that kind of a movie, and if you know what you're getting into, it's unlikely you'll be bored.

January 1, 2000
One of the few football movies that really puts you in the action, conveying the ferocity and trauma of the game.
January 1, 2000
Big, bold, brash and occasionally brilliant.
January 1, 2000
A frequently entertaining, rah-rah look at pro football.
January 1, 2000
Any Given Sunday makes a lot of noise, but to little effect.
January 1, 2000
Most interesting are images of dangerous play as the players themselves see it.
January 1, 2000
Stone never simply make a point when he can make it 50 times with a hammer to the forehead.
January 1, 2000
There's no shortage of color and vigor in this pumped-up movie.

January 1, 2000
Action largely undifferentiated.
January 1, 2000
The sensation we get from the blizzard of images and teeth-jarring sound effects is of having our head used as the football.
January 1, 2000
Probably the most predictable -- and blatantly commercial -- movie [Oliver Stone's] ever directed.

We're reminded that very little movie material is original until actors transform it from cliches into particulars.

Pretentious almost to the point of silliness.

January 1, 2000
Raucous, violent, in-your-face and occasionally advancing like a punch to the belly.
