Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There is some strong work here, but too many misfires."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"When Hayek and Leto are onscreen, you do not look away."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"This is the version that's easily forgettable."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Noir-ish murder tale is far too dark for kids."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"Hayek's alluring temptress persona reinvents Beck's obese nag as a sexed up femme fatale, in an exceedingly odd way trumping Leto's wimpy, henpecked unconvincing womanizer."
‑ Prairie Miller, Long Island Press
"The story of Fernandez and Beck may be grotesque comedy, but Todd Robinson tells it straight, without flinching from its piteousness, horror, or banality."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"It's with the focus on the police, though, that the script fails to truly connect."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Leto's layered performance as the nattily dressing dandy with no remorse is truly impressive."
‑ Heather Huntington, ReelzChannel.com
"A good, not great, movie that benefits from nice period detail and some strong performances (especially Hayek and Leto), even if the real-life Beck was a heavyset, homely mess not anywhere near as attractive as Hayek."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, FulvueDrive-in.com
"A consistently entertaining and occasionally gut-wrenching tale that deserves at least some measure of notice."
‑ Scott Collura, IGN Movies
"Where's James Ellroy when you need him?"
‑ David Fear, Time Out New York
"A rather plodding movie."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Un buen ejemplo de cine negro, género fuera de moda que aún conserva su encanto."
‑ Enrique Buchichio, Uruguay Total
"Except for the fact that innocent lives are lost here, it would be easy to walk away from Lonely Hearts saying "so what?"."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"The only juice in Lonely Hearts comes from the thousands of volts shooting through the electric chair in which Martha and Ray are executed in back-to-back scenes that are disturbingly detailed and drawn out."
‑ Chad Greene, Boxoffice Magazine
