    The Matador reserves judgment while raising the core issue concerning this traditional ritual: deep, poetic cultural expression or glorified animal cruelty?
  2. The Matador is rightly exciting -- and unsettling.
  3. Barbaric, elegant, primitive, erotic, revolting, thrilling: the movie, like bullfighting itself, is all of these.
  4. 25
    Mostly The Matador romanticizes a brutal tradition that has no place in the 21st century.
