  1. 100
    Taut, tense and enthralling, as smart and surprising as it protagonist.
  2. So sharp and dryly urbane in its mod-Brit take on the noir, noir, noir, noir world of gambling, dames, and pulp fiction, it makes higher-profile attempts like ''Rounders'' look blah, blah, blah, blah.
  3. Reviewed by: Stephen Schaefer

    A tiny treasure: grown-up, tight, sexy, suspenseful and with a mildly ambiguous wrap-up that stimulates the mind rather than confusing it.
  4. Croupier, immersed in a world of gambling, gamesmanship and crime, is a solid, seductive entertainment.
  5. 75
    The point of the movie is not the plot, but the character and the atmosphere.
  6. Clive Owen conveys a sharp, cynical intelligence that rolls off the screen in waves whenever he widens his glittering blue eyes.
