Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Robert Aldrich's Hustle is an honest and profoundly sad movie about how the legal system favors those with money, power and connections over those who don't. One of Burt's best and most underrated films."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, FulvueDrive-in.com
"a film that wasted the talent of French star Deneuve, who never pursued a successful career in Hollywood"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Thirty years on, however, its integrity and patience look positively masterful."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Burt is credible as the disillusioned cop who feels ashamed that he's pimping for a corrupt system."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"...plays like nothing more than a vanity project for star Burt Reynolds."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
