Critic Reviews of "Dead Man Walking"VarietyJune 10, 2006
Tim Robbins's balanced yet uncompromising approach refuses to judge any of the characters, including the killer (superlatively played by Sean Penn), instead giving each a fair chance to present their case with dignity and respect.Washington PostJanuary 31, 2002
An intelligent, balanced, devastating movie.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 13, 2001
Takes us along on the reluctant, difficult, essentially spiritual journey these two unlikely people make together.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Absorbing, surprising, technically superb and worth talking about for a long time afterwardFilm.comJanuary 01, 2000
A thought-provoking drama not to be missed or dismissed.USA TodayJanuary 01, 2000
is the finest, least compromised film about capital punishment ever advancing a gently stated 'anti' view but going the extra 100 miles to give victims their due.At the Movies (Australia)February 12, 2016
It doesn't flinch from presenting the crime committed, and yet, it's a film that undoubtedly is against capital punishment.The Moving Picture ShowJuly 19, 2014
A powerful and provocative film -- not quite a work of art, maybe, but close enough to demand your respectful attention.Groucho ReviewsJune 06, 2011
Has the distinction of including not one, but two of the greatest screen performances of all time...undeniably one of the most gut-churning emotional experiences of 1990s cinema... [Blu-ray]eFilmCritic.comJuly 29, 2007
To say that the movie is neither for nor against capital punishment is disingenuous. Still, this is a fine and painful effort overall.Combustible CelluloidMay 26, 2006
Dead Man Walking is one courageous film, one of the very best of its time.
