Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Why this story? As it stands, it's the story of a clean-cut kid who becomes an even nicer clean-cut kid. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jan 6, 2003

Fresh: For sure, Antwone Fisher is corny. But it's corny in a way that a Hollywood movie about a boy who just wants to go home ought to be corny. – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, Oct 23, 2003

Fresh: A fine film that proves the past is never too bleak -- or the future too hopeless -- to discover a productive new life, and a home and family to share it. – Rex Reed, New York Observer, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A riveting story well told. – Ann Gorman, Washington Post, Jun 24, 2010

Great Movie.

I love this movie and know that other people will, too. Derek Luke and Denzel Washington are amazing. Too bad you can only rent it. The rent only is a serious bummer.

Denzel's Magnum Opus

"Antwone Fisher" is one of the few films out there that succeeds at making a tragic story relatable to all types of people. Slowly paced and poignantly acted, this is a film that will make you depressed at times, but in the end, lift your spirits with its story of the celebration of human life.

This movie is great. Great story, great acting, never feels fake, in fact, it's damn near perfect. Highly recommended.
