Critic Reviews of "Slumdog Millionaire"Associated PressFebruary 20, 2013
Boyle takes his wildly high-energy visual aesthetic and applies it to a story that, at its core, is rather sweet and traditionally crowdpleasing.Toronto StarFebruary 20, 2013
It's Oliver Twist by way of City of God.Richard Roeper.comFebruary 07, 2009
The best movie of 2008.Time OutJanuary 09, 2009
Slumdog Millionaire, a film so upbeat and colourful that, by the time you're relaying its infectious air of optimism to friends, you could forget that it features orphans, slaughter, organised crime, poverty, enslavement and police brutality.Houston ChronicleDecember 12, 2008
Slumdog Millionaire is not the cure for all the world's ills, but it comes close. It solves, for instance, such endemic global problems as: a) sadness, b) lovelessness, c) cynicism, and d) the waning cultural relevance of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.Miami HeraldDecember 12, 2008
From an early footchase in which the careening camera gives us a tour of the maze-like slums, to the ridiculously uplifting Bollywood dance number that plays over the end credits, Slumdog Millionaire makes for kinetic, exhilarating entertainment.Fort Worth WeeklyFebruary 23, 2016
The people of Mumbai love their movies, and they'll be proud to know that this throbbing love letter to their city is the most exhilarating film of 2008.Critic's NotebookOctober 07, 2015
Mr. Boyle here summons universal identification with characters while still fully immersed in the specificity of their milieu.IGN MoviesFebruary 22, 2015
Heavy with humor, romance and suspense, Slumdog Millionaire is one of the best and most crowd-pleasing films of the year.Independent (UK)February 22, 2015
Slumdog Millionaire is an exhilarating ride -- a feel-good yarn about a Mumbai street kid directed by Danny Boyle with a wild energy that makes even Trainspotting (Boyle's calling card) look leaden-footed.Canada.comFebruary 22, 2015
A compelling piece of entertainment that poses bigger questions than it answers, Slumdog Millionaire is a modern version of the Cinderella story with some spicy food for thought, and an undeniably sweet core.New StatesmanFebruary 22, 2015
There are so many frantic pursuits through heaving streets that it is easy to lose track of who is chasing whom, or why. Energy and urgency are substituted for realism.
