Critic Reviews of "Day of the Jackal"Chicago ReaderNovember 01, 2007
It's a polished and exciting thriller, mercifully unburdened with heavy political/philosophical digressions.VarietyNovember 01, 2007
The major asset of the film is that it succeeds in maintaining interest and suspense despite obvious viewer foreknowledge of the outcome.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Low on documentary conviction and political context, but an intriguing exercise in concealing the obvious.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
I wasn't prepared for how good it really is: it's not just a suspense classic, but a beautifully executed example of filmmaking.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
The details are minutely observed and, to me, just a bit boring.TV GuideNovember 01, 2007
A taut, suspenseful, and fascinating political thriller.EmanuelLevy.ComApril 23, 2007
Like all Zinnemann's work, this meticulously crafted political thriller is involving but not exciting due to his detached perspective and the fact that we know the outcome, that De Gaulle wasn't assassinated, but it's cast with Europe's best actors.Lawrence Journal-WorldJanuary 05, 2005
Great assassination-based thrillerOzus' World Movie ReviewsJune 13, 2004
An engrossing film about a terrorist.Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)September 11, 2003
A taut, suspenseful thriller that is as exciting as the first time you saw it. Fox is wonderful as the assassin; a great cat-and-mouse feature.Filmcritic.comJune 29, 2003
Delightfully intelligent and often irreverant, it's a good yarn and a good thriller to boot.Film4May 24, 2003
[A] taut, slow-burning thriller.
