Critic Reviews for Downtown Express

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (5)

  • The unconvincing but gently spirited "Jazz Singer" update features accomplished musicians in the lead roles; the treat is their playing, not their acting.

    August 23, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Everyone seems so genuinely excited to be sharing their music on film that the entire experience becomes a joyful alliance between audience and actors.

    April 20, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The film may be hopelessly old-fashioned, but it's hard to entirely resist its portrait of a city that not only never sleeps but also seems to be bursting with melody at every turn.

    April 19, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Mr. Grubin may fumble two romances and several pivotal scenes, but the energy of the streets remains safe in his hands.

    April 19, 2012 | Rating: 3/5
  • The film's wide-eyed view of New York as a wonderland of harmonic diversity soon grows as tiresome as the film's trite romantic shuffling.

    April 17, 2012 | Rating: 2/5
  • Whether to let go and follow your own path is a stock dilemma, and an implausibly hopeful conclusion winds up undercutting the realism of this immigrant song.
