Critic Reviews for Belizaire the Cajun

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

The film is plagued by too many long, dead moments in which the story doesn't seem to be getting anywhere and attention wanders.

May 21, 2003 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Another ethnic group -- Cajuns, this time -- suffers the patronizing ministrations of the American Independent Cinema.

Oct 16, 2001 | Full Review…

Belizaire has personality and quiet charm and a lot of affection, mixed in with the more predictable action elements.

Jan 1, 2000 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

This is an impressive debut film.

Jan 1, 2000 | Full Review…

It's billed as a romantic comedy, but Cajun humor, like crawfish gumbo, takes some getting used to.

Jan 1, 2000 | Full Review…

Unique and flavorable slice of life.
