Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's fascinating in an overwrought kind of way, and even though it was not filmed in Pittsburgh, it's still filled with all of Romero's usual touches."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Bruiser is clearly meant to operate as both a social satire and horror flick, but it's effective in neither realm."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Bruiser may be a lightweight in the Romero canon, but he's still able to deliver the goods."
‑ Jeremiah Kipp,
"Never scary or suspenseful, and only succeeds at being sleazy and unpleasant. It's easy to see why this stinker never got a theatrical release."
‑ Chuck O'Leary,
"The humor is vacuous and the story lacks subtlety."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Bruiser is very adept at getting its point across."
‑ Johnny Butane, CHUD
"Dark, ugly, violent, and bleak. Fun times for all!"
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"A fairy tale worth telling for Romero who, even in his minor failures, exposes by example the dearth of significance and heart in the majority of today's lifeless knock-offs."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
