"Not much actually happens."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide

"Inoffensively glib and innocuously arty."
‑ J. Hoberman, Village Voice
"A chic modern vampire tale."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews

‑ Greg Dean Schmitz, Greg's Previews at Yahoo! Movies
"Wisdom of Crocodiles is a thought-provoking, memorable film that develops into a psychological shell game that leaves the viewer as breathless as the heroine."
