Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Both in terms of the activities and characters depicted, Rank doesn't truly manage to sustain interest for the course of its feature-length running time."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Rank is as thorough an examination of the sport of bull riding as you could hope to squeeze into 90 taut, well-organized minutes."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"I found it pretty compelling stuff, but whether or not Rank grips you depends solely on whether or not bull riding grabs you by the horns."
‑ Uri Lessing, eFilmCritic.com
"That final night of competition is exciting stuff, capped by a heroic victory ride, but this is otherwise a plodding feature."
‑ Jack Mathews, New York Daily News
"Hyams unflinchingly probes his protags' motives, from blinkered machismo to monetary gain, with a mournful, dissonant reserve that never devolves into judgment or pat conclusions."
‑ Mark Holcomb, Village Voice
"It offers both eye-opening rodeo footage and surprisingly interesting tangents about the bulls (some of which are worth up to $150,000) and the fleet-footed bull fighters (formerly known as rodeo clowns)."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"If even one [rider] were more conspicuously flawed, the film might be more compelling."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
