Critic Reviews of "Brick"Time OutJune 24, 2006
The self-consciously mannered rat-a-tat-tat dialogue also mines a neat overlap between teen slang and noir patois, both of which can be indecipherable to non-initiates.SlateMay 12, 2006
Like the best noirs, Brick is a triumph of attitude, and there's no arguing that its brand of deadpan cool is precisely unique.New York Magazine/VultureMay 12, 2006
It's great to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Mysterious Skin) in the juicy role of a high-school gumshoe on the trail of his estranged girlfriend's killers.Philadelphia InquirerMay 05, 2006
Alas, Brick, from writer-director Rian Johnson, isn't as clever as its conceit.Detroit NewsApril 28, 2006
Brick is smart -- perhaps too smart for its own good at times. But in the end, its affectations add up to entertainment.Arizona RepublicApril 20, 2006
Although Brick can be a bit thick, you have to admire the effort.Reel Film ReviewsOctober 24, 2015
...it's impossible not to wish that the first-time filmmaker hadn't leaned quite so heavily on the antiquated shenanigans.Common Sense MediaMarch 22, 2013
Smart, stylized teen whodunit with violence and drugs.Suite101.comSeptember 25, 2010
Noir fits "Brick" like a glove, stylishly injecting assured tough talk, vice-grip tension, black humor, striking sound design and gunshots sounding like locker doors slammed on options. A great detective story and, for some, a high-school flashback.CinePassionAugust 30, 2009
The movie's rigorous dark-lined elegance leaves a punchy aftertasteMountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)June 03, 2009
That rarest of things: a movie called 'unique' that actually is.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
Mostly lives up to the hype.
