Too soft on its lead character and too willing to chalk up America's drug appetites to the times-that-were-a-changin' in the '60s.
50
Blew its chance to be an epic drug opera. It's only nostril-deep.
63
It's a real disappointment: too hasty, too scattered and superficial, and, in the end, disappointingly sappy and sentimental.
50
A facile treatment of a complicated subject.
50
A watchable mediocrity at best.
88
Rarely since the tale of the Corleones has a movie presented such a compelling, sympathetic portrait of a criminal lowlife.
50
When George’s fortunes start to go from bad to worse, so does the movie.
50
The real problem is that there's nothing to George but the movie's props.
30
Blow works for a scene or two, then stalls.
50
A textbook case of a film that's befuddled by its subject.
