Critic Reviews of "Pump Up the Volume"Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
The perfectly cast Slater effectively propels the film, his intensity and dry delivery giving it a definite edge, as does a soundtrack which includes Ice T, Concrete Blonde and the Cowboy Junkies.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
It's a howl from the heart, a relentlessly involving movie that gives a kid every reason to believe that he or she can come of age.FlavorwireMay 27, 2016
As a movie, 'Pump Up the Volume' is a lot like a teenager: at times unbearably self-important and pretentious (Nora's poems, good lord), yet undeniably, and admirably, earnest.EmanuelLevy.ComJanuary 08, 2012
Sharply uneven, this teen-angst feature begins exgremely well with some relevant social commentary; it also put on the map Christian Slater as a talent to watch.MediasharxMarch 03, 2006
Much more than a teen movie....an experience, and one you'll never forget. TURN IT UP LOUD!Empire MagazineNovember 03, 2005
Fast paced with a satisfyingly unhappy ending.Filmcritic.comSeptember 21, 2004
A teen anthem and guilty pleasure.Shadows on the WallJune 12, 2004
Underrated.New TimesMay 22, 2004
Few films understand the fantasies of the would-be outsider-turned-icon quite as well, while remaining in a realistic setting.Movie ViewsJuly 30, 2003
Pump Up the Volume is the kind of movie that hits home. It touches on real emotions and is a reminder of just how darn awkward it is to be a young adult.About.comJuly 14, 2003
