  • [New] | Marco Albanese @ Stanze di Cinema [Italian]
  • Andrea Chase @ KillerMovieReviews.com [French]
    • Excerpt: has all the subtlety of a pole dance, but it also displays the artistry of a well-executed one.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: like the before and after economic realities of 2008, the movie is a lot more fun while things are on the upturn, the women’s manipulation of men feeding on greed something to cheer, their donning of sheep’s clothing to become wolves of Wall St. unsettling.

    • Excerpt: Hustlers is an incredibly complex movie. Not only is it hilarious and charming, it delivers commentary on complicated themes of female relationships, the power dynamic between men and women, and the struggle of the working class.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: A deceptively nuanced crime film that is as thoughtful as it is entertaining. Jennifer Lopez delivers a career best performance.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: Meryl Streep may be our greatest living actress, but I doubt she could have ever performed a pole dance routine like Jennifer Lopez.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: GoodFellas, except they’re gals. A cinematic bonbon of delinquent deliciousness that easily wraps us up in charmed complicity. And the exquisite lack of a male gaze means it’s never salacious.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Hustlers will excite many for its behind the scenes look at the exploitation of strip club dancers, the greasy men who slither through the door, and Jennifer Lopez putting on a show, but the pacing drags after the shock and awe wears off and the story is not as audacious and mind-blowing as you’re led to believe.
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: A fast-paced, immensely entertaining film.
  • Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: Where the [article] screams “revenge” on scumbag men, the film takes aim at a system these women conquered as a means for survival. This makes a huge difference.
  • Matt Oakes @ Silver Screen Riot
    • Excerpt: Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria (The Meddler), Hustlers is the kind of movie that one might confuse for a guilty pleasure, were it not also borderline great.
