75
Consistently compelling without being truly memorable.

New Times (L.A.)
It's basically your above-average nice drug movie.
50
Philadelphia Inquirer
The real problem is that there's nothing to George but the movie's props.
50
Chicago Reader
Only Depp and Ray Liotta (as Jung's father) manage to animate this tired formula.
50
Newsweek
When George’s fortunes start to go from bad to worse, so does the movie.
50
Wall Street Journal
A textbook case of a film that's befuddled by its subject.
50
Salon.com
Depp aside, the movie is higher on style than it is on substance.
50
Boston Globe
Blew its chance to be an epic drug opera. It's only nostril-deep.
40
If any element takes us through the movie, it's him (Depp).
30
Slate
This is an extraordinary -- and unfathomable -- piece of whitewashing: a true snow job.
