Chicago Sun-Times
Has the high-octane feel of real life, closely observed.

New York Post
Pays off with emotional dividends well worth the time investment.

Entertainment Weekly
Younger, in his debut feature, is as canny as he is derivative.

USA Today
Shouldn't be overrated, but it's the first film of the year - and it's mid-February already - capable of keeping a grown-up awake.

New York Daily News
Energetic, provocative.

Rolling Stone
The idea of the boiler room as a Y2K gladiator ring for disenfranchised youth provides a proactive new twist.

Mr. Showbiz
A classic Sundance résumé movie -- texturally interesting, bubbling with ideas, and as structurally predictable as a cardboard box.

Chicago Tribune
For a movie that begins so intriguingly, Boiler Room becomes boilerplate all too quickly.

Miami Herald
Boiler Room's behind-the-scenes veracity makes it highly compelling.

Derivative and flawed. But it does throw off a few sparks.

San Francisco Chronicle
Fascinating -- up to a point.
