Critic Reviews of "Fifty Dead Men Walking"Entertainment WeeklyAugust 26, 2009
Jim Sturgess makes a believable cocky lad who signs on for the con; an oddly bewigged Ben Kingsley is fussier and too actorly as his handler.Chicago TribuneAugust 21, 2009
Skogland is a crisp and efficient storyteller. She keeps the players vivid and relatively honest, and never shies away from the brutalities.New York Daily NewsAugust 21, 2009
Sturgess is solid and Kingsley predictably sneaky, but the atmosphere -- scurries through the Catholic/Protestant border, tense stand-offs, spontaneous riots -- is what's genuinely gripping.New York TimesAugust 21, 2009
