"The expensive and expansive BLACK BOOK looks gorgeous, and there's no denying Verhoeven's genuine filmmaking talent..."Box Office 4 stars out of 5 -- "BLACK BOOK is brisk, frisky and glossed with a fine Hollywood sheen..."Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "For all its feisty sense of fun, BLACK BOOK is too dark and smart to let its characters fade out into a soft-focus happy-ever-after."Uncut "[I]t is a fast-paced, action-packed ride through resistance and betrayal, with spectacular exploits, steamy sex scenes and more plot twists than can be counted."Sight and Sound 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his tremendously exciting film can suddenly, unpredictably move you to tears."Rolling Stone 4 stars out of 4 -- "BLACK BOOK is Verhoeven's best film since ROBOCOP: audacious, smart, shamelessly entertaining."Premiere "BLACK BOOK remains riveting from start to finish, confirming that nail-biting suspense transcends national boundaries. This is a thriller that truly thrills."Movieline's Hollywood Life 3 stars out of 5 -- "Van Houten is superb as the chameleonic Stein, constantly adapting to her environment to survive and yet always maintaining an unbreakable, virtuous spirit..."Ultimate DVD21.54207

"It's quite a yarn, and the filmmakers relate it with clarity and verve....[There is] a bracing, cheering present-day moral to be found in Charlie Wilson's story, a reminder that high principles are not incompatible with the pleasure principle."New York Times "[I]t's all about a likable scoundrel who discovers what it means to act out of conviction....A journalistic satire of realpolitik..." -- Grade: B+Entertainment Weekly 3 stars out of 5 -- " [Hoffman is] sly, bumptious and brilliant...He brings Gust such gusto that the energy level spikes whenever he's on screen."Total Film 3 stars out of 4 -- "Hoffman is the film's sparkling live wire."Rolling Stone 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he tone is sophisticated and the handling is remarkably light and adept."Uncut 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's during the sparkling exchanges between the leads that the movie takes off. Hanks infuses Wilson with a bounce of charm we haven't seen from him in years.' Empire "The material certainly works as satire. The dialogue -- trademark Sorkin -- is all quickfire and smart, with witty wordplay that harks back to the screwball comedies of the 1930s and 1940s."Sight and Sound6.718072
