What we're left with is a movie without the courage to declare itself.

This detective melodrama has something to offend almost everyone.

What's left is the framework for a graphic, brutal, sickening film, without the violent effects that might have made sense (however illegitimate) out of the conception.

Taking away the kissing, caressing and a few bloody killings, Friedkin has no story, though picture pretends to be a murder mystery combined with a study of Al Pacino's psychological degradation.

Its gamy images inside the leather and S&M gay bars along the Greenwich Village waterfront are both busy and dark.

No one would get away with it now, or even try.
September 4, 2007
Cruising is a mediocre thriller but an amazing time capsule -- a heady, horny flashback to the last gasp of full-blown sexual abandon, and easily the most graphic depiction of gay sex ever seen in a mainstream movie.

Opening with some powerful moments, Cruising soon drifts into bloody Village People-type caricature.
January 1, 2000
It's a lurid, twisted film that brings you into its world and completely works you over.
