Critic Reviews of "The Doors"New YorkerJune 17, 2014
For a while, the obviousness and flat-out vulgarity are sort of entertaining, and it might be possible to enjoy the movie as a camp classic if you could ignore the mean-spiritedness that keeps breaking through.Chicago TribuneJune 17, 2014
Hysteria, however skillfully maintained, should never be mistaken for art -- a caution that applies equally to Stone and his subject.Philadelphia InquirerJune 17, 2014
While it has its moments, taken by itself, The Doors amounts to little more than an impressionistic look at a boy and his death wish.Seattle TimesJune 17, 2014
Insidiously funny and remarkably truthful about the psychedelic rock scene in the late 1960.Los Angeles TimesJune 17, 2014
The whole movie is white hot, lapped in honeyed golds, evilly blue and black or drenched in those swoony, fiery reds. The Doors blasts your ears and scorches your eyes.Chicago TribuneJune 17, 2014
Both a vibrant tribute to rock cult figure Jim Morrison and to the decade in which he flourished.Tulsa WorldJune 17, 2014
Morrison is played with uncanny authenticity by Val Kilmer. The performance is utterly convincing without being terribly illuminating.Baltimore SunJune 17, 2014
The flaw in the film is its unrelenting tone of bombast. It never gives you a break. You ache for a moment of quietude, an escape from the lizard king's cranium.South Florida Sun-SentinelJune 17, 2014
The much-anticipated film is a psychedelic circus that turns into the worst nightmare of a bad trip. It`s an experience.Christian Science MonitorJune 17, 2014
The movie is weighed down by its enchantment with the mythology, as opposed to the reality, of Morrison's life -- a mythology that needs to be explored, not simply reproduced on the wide screen.Radio TimesJune 17, 2014
Val Kilmer does, however, pull off a remarkable impression of the troubled vocalist, although he's more convincing on stage than he is in his drunken, drug-fuelled reveries.Total FilmJune 17, 2014
Val Kilmer gives the performance of his career as Jim Morrison in Oliver Stone's biopic, so it's a shame the surrounding film lets him down.
