Rolling Stone
Taut, tense and enthralling, as smart and surprising as it protagonist.
100
Los Angeles Times
Intense, hypnotic, assured, Croupier mesmerizes from its opening image of a roulette ball on the move.
88
Baltimore Sun
A marvelously subversive, slyly manipulative effort.
88
Boston Globe
It's brilliantly precise in its detailing, stylishly jagged and sensual by turns, and utterly unpredictable.
80
Dallas Observer
Takes roughly a third of its length to really get going, but, once it does, it's a devilishly clever, engaging piece of work that milks every cent of value from its tiny budget.
80
Don't let Croupier go by without a look.
75
Philadelphia Inquirer
Croupier, immersed in a world of gambling, gamesmanship and crime, is a solid, seductive entertainment.
63
New York Daily News
There are certainly glimpses of his underused talent. But there aren't enough of those moments to elevate Croupier above the level of routine melodrama.
50
The film fires off too many intriguing plot possibilities that remain nothing more than that.
50
Chicago Reader
The twists and revelations of this rigorous noir reduce it to canned psychodrama.
