Critic Reviews of "Mona Lisa"TIME MagazineApril 20, 2010
No wonder audiences have taken to this gritty romance as to a mongrel puppy; for at heart Mona Lisa is an old-fashioned poor-soul weepie, and George is less a Cagney rakehell than a Chaplin tramp.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Skillfully combines comedy and thriller, romance and sleaze.Time OutJune 24, 2006
A wonderful achievement, a dark film with a generous heart in the shape of an extraordinarily touching performance from Hoskins.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
It's like watching the departure of an ocean liner. After all of the initial excitement, you're left on the dock, alone, wondering what all the fuss was about.ReelViewsJanuary 01, 2000
In an era when movies about love almost always invariably devolve into formulaic affairs, Neil Jordan's Mona Lisa stands out as an often-surprising, multi-layered achievement.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
The movie's ending is a little too neat for my taste. But in a movie like this, everything depends on atmosphere and character, and Mona Lisa knows exactly what it is doing.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsOctober 11, 2014
A dreary but compelling romantic crime thriller about love being the important ingredient in life.Three Movie BuffsMay 06, 2014
A superb cast lead by Bob Hoskins in the performance of his career.Nick's Flick PicksJuly 06, 2011
The bracing peaks of image, acting, and narrative architecture handily win the day over a scenario that always feels more like a willfully engineered exercise than a fully plausible reality.EmanuelLevy.ComJune 17, 2011
The acting of Bob Hoskins in Jordan's disturbing Odd Couple tale is superb.Groucho ReviewsAugust 29, 2010
As a study of social façades as a means of social climbing, and as a character study of Hoskins' would-be angel, Mona Lisa excels... [Blu-ray]TV GuideApril 20, 2010
A detailed, thoughtful film that sensitively explores the emotions within its seedy, exploitative milieu.
