Entertainment Reviews:

Total Film - 03/01/2000
"...This is a fantastic ensemble piece led by a career-high performance from Newman and stylish direction from Rosenberg..." -- 5 out of 5 stars
USA Today - 03/13/1996

Uncut - 03/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 -- "Simultaneously biting and blithe....Newman's effortless performance drives things..."
Sight and Sound - 03/01/2006
"Paul Newman enjoys one of his finest hours as the endlessly defiant convict in Stuart Rosenberg's prison-set drama."
Entertainment Weekly - 09/12/2008
"Surrounded by such great character actors as Dennis Hopper and Strother Martin...Newman has never looked more godlike." -- Grade: B+
Empire - 10/01/2008
4 stars out of 5 -- "As a supreme showcase for Paul Newman's charisma, COOL HAND LUKE is pure magic....It was impeccably cast, superbly acted, [and] beautifully shot by Conrad Hall."
