Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Long but never boring, spiritual but never soggy, this is the brand of big entertainment Hollywood is best at but so rarely does right these days."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"The latest masterpiece to fall victim to cynicism."
‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
"There's a decent two-hour movie buried within the three hours of Meet Joe Black, a classic instance of a filmmaker overvaluing his material beyond all good sense."
‑ Kevin Lally, Film Journal International
"The length does not completely dilute the involving core of the story."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Is weighed down by a tediously slow pace and overwrought production values."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"There's a solid 95-minute movie buried somewhere in here."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Brestian (adj.) Bloated, boring, and long-winded, as in "Meet Joe Black is Brestian in scope and to be avoided if you have a weak bladder.""
‑ Elias Savada, Nitrate Online
"Brest lets scene after scene ramble on and on, giving the picture a languid air... For everyone except the most fervent Pitt fans, this is Sominex Cinema."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"Un buen ejercicio sobre ideas de amor... de muerte y del camino que todos vamos a seguir en algún momento..."
‑ Alex Ramirez, Cinenganos
"El trabajo actoral de Brad Pitt como es una muestra de la incapacidad del director para aprovechar su talento"
‑ Jorge Avila Andrade, Moviola
"A sleek, good-looking, and entertaining romance."
‑ Dustin Putman,
