Critic Reviews of "Illegal Tender"Hollywood ReporterDecember 12, 2007
An entertaining genre piece boasting a terrifically sinewy lead performance from Wanda De Jesus.Chicago ReaderDecember 03, 2007
More care seems to have been taken with the cut of Gonzalez's sideburns than with the shape of the story, and the hyperbolic soundtrack does most of the work of the mise en scene.Ebert & RoeperAugust 27, 2007
What in God's name was going on with this movie?AV ClubAugust 25, 2007
For a film about growing up, Illegal Tender loses itself in a lot of silly juvenilia.San Francisco ChronicleAugust 24, 2007
Plenty of movies have combined a blazing-guns revenge story with a family dynamics drama, but Illegal Tender never gets the mixture right, lurching between bullet-happy shootouts and overwrought domestic content.Newark Star-LedgerAugust 24, 2007
Illegal Tender isn't quite the mess you expect this time of year, a film that achieves a certain level of originality by reversing gender roles.Urban CinefileSeptember 13, 2008
Clearly aware of the impact of visual style on the narrative, Jonathan Ogilvie uses a stylised 1920 Australian setting for a love triangle that involves all the basic drivers of human frailtyDVDTalk.comJanuary 28, 2008
There are so many chances for Illegal Tender to get things right that it's depressing to realize that it misses all of them.Filmcritic.comDecember 29, 2007
bland and forgettable.NewsBlazeDecember 17, 2007
Brainless bloodsport, Cholo-style.HollywoodChicago.comSeptember 20, 2007
You know the film is off to a paltry start when you see the rookie Rick Gonzalez attempt to strut bad-boy, awww-yeah stuff. Instead, he feels like a 21-year-old boy just going through puberty.
