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

Remarkable debut feature by New Yorker Ben Younger.
70
Salon.com
Made with confidence that borders on bravado, and sometimes it shows more conviction than it does grace.

As a piece of journalism then, Boiler Room is first class.
60
Film.com
Isn't a must-see, but it's definitely worthwhile.
60
Variety
Begins extremely well as a saga of greed and conspicuous consumption, but gradually loses its bite.
60
Tries too hard to prove it has a "heart" when the whole point is that its subjects do not.
50
Film.com
Fails to single out one plot thread and make a claim to it.
50
First-time filmmaker Ben Younger makes not a single false move when delineating the merciless, high-testosterone world of boiler-room brokerages.
38
Baltimore Sun
Blessed with some outstanding performances, among them Ribisi's.
