Critic Reviews

  1. Unruly girls around the world are liable to find these Bandits stealing their hearts.
  2. Philadelphia Inquirer

    If you enjoy visuals with substance as well as flash, look no further than this exuberant movie.

    (Katja von Garnier's) talent makes this original film exciting and moving, a raucous ride.
  4. Its winning cast, spirited music and mordant view of establishment figures, from the police to cocaine-sniffing record industry executives, make Bandits a stylish, buoyant entertainment.
  5. 80
    Equal parts big-house B-feature, hammer-down road movie, post-feminist consciousness-raiser and rock & roll pipe dream.
  6. Has a lot going for it -- but too much going against it to be a clear-cut winner.
  7. An emotion-charged tale that's also an edgy commentary on women's destinies and how they're still so largely affected by men.
  8. 70
    The rogue feminism of "Thelma and Louise," mix in some of "Rock 'N' Roll High School" punk-rock energy.
