Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"While it would like to be nimble, light-footed satire, too often Death and Texas stumbles on its own earnestness, wearing cement shoes when it should be tap-dancing."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Unique and gripping, is an unlikely combo of pro US football and the death penalty"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"A Hot-Button comedy that focuses on 'enlightenment via entertainment'."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"An uneasy (and very unfunny) marriage of sports culture satire and death penalty polemic."
‑ Scott Foundas, Variety
"[B]risk and wickedly pointed..."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"[A] magnificent piece of agitprop."
‑ Bryan Curtis, Slate
"The Gridiron meets The Guillotine . . .a smart, funny dark comedy . . . one that also delivers a very somber message and a clever argument against the Death Penalty"
‑ Brian Mckay,
