    TIME Magazine

    The Onion Field is a serious and most uncompromising movie. It lacks, however, the sort of disciplined craft that might have made it a powerful and affecting one.

    March 26, 2009

    James Woods as the near-psychotic Powell is chillingly effective, creating a flakiness in the character that exudes the danger of a live wire near a puddle.

    It's the usual heavy Wambaugh brew: police procedure closely observed without a trace of romanticism, suggesting simply that life in the force is psychological hell.

    New York Times

    The film is generally crisp and at times exciting, but it's also full of incidents that are only sketchily explained, and minus the all-important narrative thread that might have provided a clear point of view.

    September 10, 2011

    Brutal, even sordid, but compulsive viewing.

    TV Guide
    September 10, 2011

    Good acting and careful direction by Becker make it worth seeing, but the violence and the language may be too graphic for some tastes.

    Apollo Guide
    November 08, 2002

    Ranks among the best crime films of the late 1970s...and that puts the flick among some rather impressive company.

    Empire Magazine
    January 01, 2000

    Thoughtful trial movie with a disturbing edge.
