Critic Reviews of "Rising Sun"TIME MagazineNovember 05, 2008
It would be nice to see Connery doing something intrinsically interesting instead of trying to make something inherently dull entertaining. And it would be good to see Snipes cut loose more than he is able to here.NewsweekOctober 18, 2008
As the plot grows more intricate, strangely the tension dissipates, until finally the movie just seems to run out of breath.VarietyApril 09, 2008
When working in genre territory before, the idiosyncratic Kaufman has shown a marked tendency to debunk or subvert conventions. Playing it straight here, he brings little to the table.Chicago ReaderApril 09, 2008
I found it pretty entertaining, as well as provocative in some of its comments about contemporary life.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Kaufman's PC adaptation falls awkwardly between the conventions of the Hollywood conspiracy thriller and something intended as more artily significant.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
It directs attention not to the internal reasons for America's economic problems, but to inscrutable, generalized, unknown others from abroad, whose yellow skins and strange manners announce their evil purposes as much as their unfair trade practices.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsFebruary 27, 2011
It never rises past a second-rate thriller.EmanuelLevy.ComJanuary 02, 2009
Kaufman's film is flawed. but not as bad as critics claim-- charges of racism made this adaptation controversial even before it was seen.Empire MagazineApril 09, 2008
What should have been a tense political thrilling blockbuster, ends up a wasted effort with a limp storyline that once again fails to give the book justice.Film4April 09, 2008
aufman's heavy-handedness and a half-baked script with unfocused performances to match render this unentertaining, vacuous nonsense.TV GuideApril 09, 2008
The film grafts a fiercely modernist feel onto characters and themes right out of a 1940s film noir--an impressive achievement that more than makes up for a ponderous storyline.Flipside Movie EmporiumMay 13, 2007
Snipes at his coolest still can't save this xenophobic piece of studio flotsam.
