Critic Reviews of "The Stunt Man"Chicago ReaderMarch 13, 2015
Pretentious, overenergized, muddled, intellectually bogus, and very entertaining for it.TIME MagazineMarch 13, 2015
The fun lies in the journey. It is a trip of constantly shifting perceptions and sharply etched satirical sketches of movie types. It is also a carnival of bang-up stunt scenes.Wall Street JournalJune 11, 2011
Sensationally original.VarietyDecember 01, 2008
O'Toole is excellent in his best, cleanest performance in years.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
The result is a movie filled with gags and excellent stunts which remains curiously humourless at heart. Stunted, not stunning.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
A film that depends on deceiving us has got to play by its own rules. If we are going to be deceived in general, fine, but then we can't be cheated on particulars.Parallax ViewMarch 30, 2017
It's one of the great movies about the movies and a devious exploration of trust in the line between art and life.The SpectatorMarch 13, 2015
The narrative doesn't come to life until Peter O'Toole wraps it around himself like a Renaissance cloak, and stares pensively into the distance.TV GuideMarch 13, 2015
Lawrence B. Marcus's script, which pits real life against reel life, offers plenty of wit, with most of the bons mots handed to O'Toole.Film4March 13, 2015
Meticulously constructed and beautifully realised.CinemaniaJuly 28, 2013
A puzzle-master's delight.EmanuelLevy.ComJuly 20, 2012
Richard Rush's inventive narrative about the blurred lines between movie reality and factual reality is vastly entertaining, boasting Peter O'Toole in a diabolical, delicious Oscar-nominated performance.
