Critics Reviews

USA Today
Director Danny Boyle's riveting and kaleidoscopic tale, based on Vikas Swarup's debut novel "Q and A," is exquisitely adapted to the screen by Simon Beaufoy.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
The story may stretch credibility until it's ready to pop its seams, but Patel conveys the simple confidence of a prodigy who has learned everything important in life, except how to lie.

I wish I could give this sentimental piece of crap a negative rating. If only I'd been born a thief and had so many fortunate coincidences happen to me. If only he were retarded we could've called it Jamal Gump and it would have been slightly less...

I've become quite a fan of Danny Boyle. His work with The Beach, 28 Days Later, and especially Sunshine has impressed me. So it is no surprise that I enjoyed Slumdog Millionaire even if it is an intriguing career move. Despite the huge chasm of...

All for one. Jamal is one question away from winning India’s “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” And he doesn’t care. He’s living the dream, rising from Slumdog to fame and wealth. All of India is rooting for him, and he still doesn’t care. He’s...

Somewhere between the classic artistry of a few certain older Indian films and the shimmering total-fantasy world of contemporary Bollywood productions comes this rather winning new film in a moderately realist mode. In it, desperately poor young...

Slumdog Millionaire is a film that lightly treads so many themes that the actual subject of the film, which I found laughable, is so easily forgotten. This film is not about social injustice, poverty or love but rather the lame and tired subject of...

Since everyone hated my long-winded review with all my carefully chosen words, I threw it out. An average movie. Basically you could take all the worst aspects of me, put it in a movie, and say that's the real moviemeh. So why not do the same with...

This movie lived up to the hype. Well written and shot, it may not look great from the previews but trust me, its a watcher. This is a somewhat disturbing movie that delivers action, drama and comedy in a package that almost any audience can enjoy....

Who would have thought that a movie that starts with torture could be such a feel good crowd pleaser? What amazes me most about Danny Boyle is that you can��t pin him down to a specific genre or type of movie and each one is a great film. Boyle...

Sickening throughout but a somewhat good story. Frankly, I don't need to be "entertained" by seeing the seedy side of India and the worst that mankind has to offer. It got so bad at one point that I almost turned it off but stayed with it to see...

When I first heard that title, I seriously thought it had to do with some cartoon dog winning the lottery (those wacky Disney people!). When I finally got to read what it was about, I told myself 'Just wait for the DVD.' Now, with all the attention...

After seeing Slumdog Millionaire, I had a crazy thought. I want to be Jamal Malik (The main character). I've never seen a movie and said "I wish I were that guy" - but this story is so enchanting, you'd give anything to be a part of it. You're...

A beautiful, thoughtful and inspiring film
A beautiful, thoughtful and inspiring film by director Danny Boyle. Boyle uses the game show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" as a tool to tell the story of Jamal, a boy from the slums who of India. This film is breathtaking to look at. Each...
