Cruise is downright scary. It's the creepiest -- and most entertaining -- performance since his unforgettable appearance in that Scientology video.

December 8, 2008
The action movie has been spoofing itself for years. Half of the time it's no even intentional. Ben Stiller's hilarious and surprisingly intelligent Tropic Thunder takes the genre spoof to a new extreme.

Tropic Thunder focuses its satire on this Hollywoodization of war, as it depicts the production of a Vietnam genre film that's less "Platoon" than "Platoon Leader" with Michael Dudikoff.

A journey into Hollywood's heart of darkness.

Un excelente entretenimiento, realmente gracioso y divertido, que se permite tomarle el pelo a la misma industria de la que sale.

November 17, 2008
Even with its excess and undeniably heavy hand, this is a whole lot of fun as a satire of Hollywood, a take off on war/ action flicks and as a straight-ahead action movie.

... it attacks celebrity culture and the excesses of Hollywood filmmaking ... with a wink and slap on the back, celebrating that same culture as much as it ridicules it.
November 13, 2008
...when you throw enough gags at an audience, some of them are bound to work.

November 12, 2008
Stiller is terrific, and Downey is somewhat better than terrific -- inspired. ... Tropic Thunder really is hysterical; and it even manages, now and then, to surprise.
October 18, 2008
Though Tropic Thunder never gets so wild that it forgets about the story it's trying to tell, it's just wild enough to make the whole experience unforgettable.

October 18, 2008
The tension between what the film says and what the film does helps support one of a dozen (or so) layers of snarky, self-aware humour.
October 18, 2008
Though some of the caricatures wear thin, some of the acting rises to a high level.
October 18, 2008
Tiptoes to the fine line between irony and insight and blows it to smithereens. It's hilarious.

A delightfully entertaining, very funny movie.

October 18, 2008
A big-budgeted bust that could prove to be an embarrassment to at least a few of the bigger-name actors in its cast.

Cruise and particularly Downey are something to behold: They give this Thunder its lightning.

[A] raucous, R-rated satire of Hollywood in general, war films in particular and the actors who make them.

October 1, 2008
With so much extreme mayhem going on, keeping the comedy cooking at top levels is a daunting task Stiller pulls off with aplomb.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 27, 2008
Tropic Thunder stops just short of going over the top with satirical humor that bites with a freshly acute sense of its own relevancy.
Full Review | Original Score: B
September 19, 2008
This comedy about movie-making that allows the cast to play knowingly with their careers and public personae. But the film feels only half as funny as it should be, falling back too often on big action sequences that are too ridiculous to work on any leve
