Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A film that was 25 years ahead of its time, John Frankenheimer's Black Sunday is an intelligently written, complex and constantly intense thriller that builds to an extremely exciting climax."
‑ Chuck O'Leary,
"It's not as campy as the Airport flicks, nor as thrilling as James Bond, but taken as a sort of combo between the two, you could certainly do a lot worse."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Since its protagonists are anti-heroic and its antagonists are admirable, it will be hard for audiences to identify with segments of the movie."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Apollo Guide
"One of the all-time great thrillers. It does not seem as far-fetched today as when it was originally released."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
"What begins as a dark, uncompromising, character-driven thriller ends in histrionics."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"You simply haven't lived until you've seen the innocuous Good Year Blimp turned into an instrument of death."
‑ Christopher Null,
