Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An attempted Scorsese-esque crime epic that too often feels like an underdeveloped outline."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"This dollar-store version of a Scorsese crime saga, "For the Love of Money" is consistently as trite as its title."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Looks to ape Scorsese but can only muster Corman."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Although it's doubtful that film fans walk around lamenting the dearth of Israeli characters in gangster movies, For the Love of Money nonetheless attempts to fill the gap."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"A film that can't quite capitalize on the big names it has in relatively small roles."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"It decelerates into an unremarkable good-guys-vs.-bad-guys tale that ends in a glaringly tension-free showdown."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"Viewers have traveled this road of criminal menace before, only this time it's peppered with more exclamations of 'L'chaim!'"
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
