Critic Reviews of "The Lookout"Orlando SentinelMay 13, 2009
Frank has cooked up an interesting moral dilemma for a character ill-equipped to deal with one. Chris has made one big mistake. Is he up for another?Time OutNovember 01, 2007
Forgettable fun.AV ClubMarch 31, 2007
The Lookout's thriller elements could stand to be more surprising, but they're ultimately in service of a better understanding of the characters. Usually, it's the other way around.Time OutMarch 31, 2007
There's nothing here you haven't seen before, and even the pleasant hum of a well-tuned engine begins to drone a little.Wall Street JournalMarch 30, 2007
A straight-ahead drama, perfectly accessible though psychologically intricate, coupled shrewdly to a crime thriller.USA TodayMarch 30, 2007
The movie is sometimes deliberately paced, then intensifies at unlikely moments, artfully blending pulse-stopping, nerve-jangling suspense with sharp dialogue and nuanced portrayals.7M PicturesFebruary 09, 2014
Strip away the head-trauma hero, and you're left with a white-trash heist film.Boston PhoenixApril 23, 2009
First-time director Scott Frank, who penned Out of Sight and Minority Report, shapes some sharp noirish notes.Fayetteville Free WeeklyFebruary 02, 2009
The best young actor in movies today may well be Joseph Gordon-Levitt.Hollywood.comNovember 20, 2008
The vast majority of his veteran contemporaries should be so lucky as to have their best dramas be as engrossing as Frank's first.3BlackChicks ReviewOctober 18, 2008
Lookout for this one and grab it.
