Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Writer-director Mathieu Kassovitz mines so much tension and pointed dialogue from a low budget and deceptively simple premise that you wonder why so much of current Hollywood's own social realism ends up shooting $50 million blanks."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"La Haine does not provide an easy answer. So you have to struggle intellectually for yourself."
‑ Dan Jardine, Cinemania
"to get an inside view of the situation, there simply is no better source than Kassovitz's disturbing urban study"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"All the performances are excellent, especially Cassel..."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Hate is, I suppose, a Generation X film, whatever that means, but more mature and insightful than the American Gen X movies."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"The conveniently manufactured ending is a let-down, but the display of raw emotion and kinetic energy lingers with the viewer long after the film is over."
‑ Christopher Long, Movie Metropolis
"One of the most blisteringly effective pieces of urban cinema ever made"
‑ Wendy Ide, Times [UK]
"Mathieu Kassovitz's gritty, documentary-like second film is a powerful comment on class and racial disparity."
‑ Austin Trunick, Under the Radar
"An inspired achievement from Mathieu Kassovitz."
‑ Cole Smithey,
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
