Baltimore Sun
This audacious hybrid of cinematic styles is pure entertainment.
100
An extraordinary experience: an original and brilliant combination of comedy, action and sophisticated political comment -- the best American movie of the year thus far.
100
New York Daily News
A daring, teeth-grinding experience that doesn't let the viewer rest easy.
90
Off-and-on cynical and sentimental, Russell's darkly comic tale shows how much can be done with familiar material when you're burning to do things differently and have the gifts to pull that off.
90
Washington Post
Enormously entertaining.
90
One of the most exciting Hollywood action films in years, and the best Vietnam movie since "Apocalypse Now."
90
TNT RoughCut
It's full of energy and drops an emotional bomb with its unexpected tale of reluctant heroes.
83
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
As entertaining as it is a viable, political message destined to make viewers rethink their stance on war.
75
Entertainment Weekly
So overstuffed with random fireworks that despite its politics, it's easy to imagine the film getting a four-star rave from Bush or Saddam.
75
USA Today
Visual pyrotechnics and dark humor aside, Three Kings rules because it dares to dig for such truths, whether banal or significant.
