  • Critic Reviews of "Light It Up"

    New York Post
    January 01, 2000

    The dialogue is ridiculous and condescending.

    Dallas Morning News
    January 01, 2000

    Painfully obvious and cliched.

    Chicago Tribune
    January 01, 2000

    Writer-director Craig Bolotin wants to get our motors racing, our minds pondering and our hearts pumping. Laudable goals; shaky results.

    Orlando Sentinel
    January 01, 2000

    Bolotin repeatedly reminds the viewer of his lack of imagination.
    January 01, 2000

    Nelson, Whitaker and their talented, young co-stars give this film most of whatever juice it has.

    USA Today
    January 01, 2000

    Crackling dialogue, surprising intelligence and an emotional wallop.
    April 17, 2005

    Snuff it out!

    Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
    February 18, 2005

    ...isn't so much a bad movie as an unfinished movie

    Internet Reviews
    January 01, 2000

    Too often writer/directors such as Light It Up's Craig Bolotin don't take the time to create a plausible plot and realistic dialog.

    Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
    January 01, 2000

    It begins as a high school comedy romp and then abruptly turns into a TV cop show-caliber thriller.

    San Francisco Examiner
    January 01, 2000

    A laughably disconnected hostage drama.
