Critic Reviews of "Training Day"Chicago ReaderApril 09, 2008
If he makes it through the trial by fire -- and a blandly twisting plot with no meaningful revelations or substantial themes -- Hawke will get a promotion, but there's nothing in it for us.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Director Fuqua keeps it slick and sleazy and stokes up the race some, but this only accelerates the movie's deafening rush toward the top and ever over.New York Magazine/VultureJanuary 22, 2002
On a purely visceral level, Training Day is easily the most exciting movie out there right now, but as a morality tale with anything large on its mind, it's a cop-out.Salon.comOctober 12, 2001
Training Day isn't just one of the finest cops-and-robbers thrillers of recent years, full of devious twists and gut-grinding tension, but it also steers clear of convenient moral formulas.New York ObserverOctober 11, 2001
Training Day is a tense, polished, well-made action thriller that suffers from bad timing.CNN.comOctober 08, 2001
As usual Washington is astounding. He grabs the screen like a vise and never lets go.Blog de cineFebruary 02, 2017
'Training Day' is still a very interesting thriller where Denzel Washington truly shines just as the lucid but equally necessary and inspired work of Ethan Hawke. [Full review in Spanish]Common Sense MediaDecember 29, 2010
Great performances, but for adults only.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
A surprisingly excellent movie with Incredible performances...Observer (UK)April 09, 2008
The movie moves rapidly, is extremely violent and not entirely plausible.eFilmCritic.comAugust 05, 2007
This isn't a serious movie, despite Denzel Washington in full eruption and giving his calloused lines more weight and authority than they deserve.Film ScoutsJune 21, 2007
My guess is that the conceit was meant to be that Denzel's a bad guy, and that's fun to watch. Instead, this just adds another to his list of bad film's he's acted in...
