Excerpt: While Pacino isn’t exactly the most convincing rocker, he’s dialed down his propensity to play to the rafters in a performance grounded in humility yet still entertainingly energetic.

Kimberly Gadette @ Doddle
Excerpt: While the plot sounds like an old familiar tune (dissipated artist changes his wicked ways when he realizes that love of family/friends is worth more than fame/fortune), it’s Danny’s dazzle that intoxicates.

Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz
Excerpt: The scenario is obvious, but Danny Collins has one real plus: Al Pacino in the titular role of the aging rocker who hasn’t written a song in 30 years and finds himself crooning the same old shit to his adoring fanbase of senior citizens chewing on licorice throughout his concerts.
Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
Excerpt: While Fogelman’s script is extremely calculated and heavy-handed, the cast’s nimble execution turns it into an agreeable way to pass the time.
Betty Jo Tucker @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews
