Critic Reviews of "Rosewood"Richard Schickel TIME MagazineApril 28, 2010
Rhames' gravity and grace, Voight's pinched anguish as he wills himself to do right, the moving work of actors like Don Cheadle and Esther Rolle do much to redeem this film for human if not historical reality.Todd McCarthy VarietyOctober 18, 2008
Although it increasingly succumbs to a tendency toward conventional movie heroics, John Singleton's fourth film tells a story of rare interest and tragedy...Kenneth Turan Los Angeles TimesFebruary 14, 2001
The need to bear witness against atrocity, to testify that something wicked this way came, is the powerful drive that animates Rosewood, the story of an American tragedy so horrific no one talked about it for more than half a century.Janet Maslin New York TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Neither the film's smug white bigots nor its uniformly noble blacks are well served by such oversimplification.Peter Stack San Francisco ChronicleJanuary 01, 2000
Rosewood is startling, infuriating, painful history played out as a not-very-satisfying, overly ambitious and overlong movie.Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
If the movie were simply the story of this event, it would be no more than a sad record. What makes it more is the way it shows how racism breeds and feeds, and is taught by father to son.Maitland McDonagh TV GuideApril 28, 2010
The intentions are unassailable: to dramatize a forgotten injustice and sear it into contemporary memory so it's never allowed to happen again. But the movie is long and didactic, undermined by the faintly pious air of an educational slide show.Carol Cling Las Vegas Review-JournalSeptember 15, 2006
Stirring story, indifferently realized.Robin Clifford Reeling ReviewsApril 09, 2005
John Singleton, with Rosewood, proves himself to be a capable and talented director, bringing to life a piece of violent American history that some would have preferred left unremembered.Scott Weinberg eFilmCritic.comApril 03, 2005
Gripping and pretty darn tense historical drama.Philip Martin Arkansas Democrat-GazetteJanuary 29, 2005
...the more the body count mounts, the more cartoonish the movie seems, and the less we care.Judith Egerton Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)June 25, 2004
A charged, wrenching drama about one of the most shameful events in American history.
