Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The fun feels forced almost all the way through "That Man From Rio," at least until the pure action and Belmondo's athleticism take over."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"This charming French madcap road adventure, starring Jean Paul Belmondo at the height of his fame, was a huge international hit."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"That Man From Rio is a crazy delight, a stylish, early-'60s pastiche that folds in every adventure-movie cliché you've ever seen, and possibly invents a few new ones."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice
"We don't think of Belmondo as an action star per se, but that's what he is here, smirking like Steve McQueen and managing to keep a cigarette clamped between his lips even when he's navigating hairpin turns on a motorbike."
‑ Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com
