  1. It is a bravura work that attests to Pineyro's command of a style rich in texture and nuance and also of multilayered material.
  2. 80
    Burnt Money arranges a triumphant martyrdom for its bad boys -- a redemptive blaze of glory, dozens of faceless corpses notwithstanding.
  3. 80
    Those who hang in for the long haul are rewarded with a sexy, moving love story.
  4. This isn't entertainment for the faint of heart.
  5. Director Marcelo Pineyro imbues the film with mood and style and yet the violent climax holds little thrall as a lack of character development makes it had to care about the robbers' fate.
  6. What makes this one stand out is the tugging, melancholy romance hiding behind the curtain of blood.
  7. 50
    Hopped up on standard action riffs, most of the film feels like hand-me-downs purchased from the John Woo outlet.
