Sid and Nancy Reviews

June 12, 2003
As it chronicles the fall, and fall, and fall of its title characters, Sid & Nancy very quickly becomes tiresome and annoying.
January 1, 2000
The title characters lead pointless, useless lives that are cut mercifully short by early deaths.

Repellent is the word for it, but the filmmakers might take that as a compliment, since hardcore sleaze is apparently what tickles them most.
January 1, 2000
The only thing that is sustained in Sid and Nancy is a tone of clinical disinterest that leaves you asking why Cox would want to make a movie about them.
August 9, 2016
Sid & Nancy is an honorable try, but it could have been better had Cox found a way to imbue the movie with some of the sheer zaniness of his Repo Man.

Oldman plays Vicious as awkward, insecure and violent; Webb's Spungen is tantrum-prone yet has a streak of generosity. They both seem very real, though neither will generate much sympathy.
August 3, 2016
Gary Oldman, making just his second big screen appearance, fully embodies the maniacal rocker with a simultaneously electrifying and repulsive swagger.

Why then should anyone of sane disposition wish to see the film? Because it is still a love story, and a very touching one at that.
August 9, 2016
Sid and Nancy is a brilliantly acted surprise from newcomers Gary Oldman and Chloe Webb.

The great DOP Roger Deakins works hard to make cramped, dank interiors look cinematic. Cox's humour, meanwhile, compensates for the grim subject matter.

The film's crowning achievement is depicting the soul-sucking toll that drugs take on the talented and the naive. Eventually, drugs replace the people they were, and they turn into mere vessels to an all-consuming craving. They become their addiction.

August 5, 2016
An inventive and energetic raggedy thing, made with a wide screen chutzpah rare in British film, and held together by a committed charismatic lead couple.
August 5, 2016
The film stars Gary Oldman as Sid and Chloe Webb as Nancy, both dialled up to 11 on the acting-ometer, perhaps as manic and irritating as their characters were.

At its best Sid & Nancy has a captivating energy and rawness, and there are even some priceless moments of levity.

[Cox] and his actors pull off the neat trick of creating a movie full of noise and fury, and telling a meticulous story right in the middle of it.
