Critic Reviews of "Civil Brand"New York Daily NewsOctober 16, 2003
It's impossible to ignore the strain of misogyny that taints the movie.Newark Star-LedgerOctober 13, 2003
It's guilty of gross B-movie meltdown, but mitigating circumstances include honest anger and a scattering of vivid scenes.New York PostOctober 10, 2003
Barnette, a veteran TV director, means this as an exposé of prison abuse and exploitation, but the film is too simplistic and derivative to succeed.Detroit NewsOctober 10, 2003
Artistically, its heavy-handed clumsiness undercuts its goals.New York TimesOctober 09, 2003
It presents a heated-up, awkward blend of earnest outrage and down-and-dirty exploitation.Chicago TribuneOctober 09, 2003
Plagued by continuity problems, ham-fisted storytelling and a problematic voiceover by Da Brat, Civil Brand feels less like a prison movie than a prison sentence.FilmStew.comDecember 15, 2003
Wildly uneven, rife with a virtual checklist of human tragedies that build to easy emotional crescendos but fail to engage the audience well enough to evoke any meaning.Entertainment InsidersOctober 11, 2003
This is a film about the abuses of privatization and presents a negative view of what might happen if corporate America gets control of the business of corrections.TV GuideOctober 10, 2003
There's way too much of the usual bonding, beatings, petty humiliation by guards, cat fights in the yard and trips to the hole.Premiere MagazineSeptember 09, 2003
If Civil Brand hopes to raise awareness or instigate reform, what it really needs is a greater focus on character over convention.Filmcritic.comAugust 30, 2003
Hollywood still doesn?t seem to understand that just because someone can sing doesn't mean they can act. If this film doesn't prove that point, nothing will.E! OnlineAugust 29, 2003
Women behind bars! While that's the perfect set-up for a late-night, soft-core cable movie, this flick is guilty of being nothing more than a jailhouse crock.
