Critic Reviews of "White Man's Burden"New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Were it not for John Travolta's big-hearted portrayal of an unemployed white factory worker driven to commit a desperate act, the movie would be an emotionally frozen exercise in cautious high-mindedness.Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
White Man's Burden spirals into tragedy but never into stirring drama. It stays stuck at the level of noble experiment.San Francisco ChronicleJanuary 01, 2000
White Man's Burden was worth doing once, if it only to find out it isn't worth doing again.USA TodayJanuary 01, 2000
Watching this movie is like watching Godfrey Cambridge's racial switcheroo in 1970's Watermelon Man -- without the laughs.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
A ham-fisted, under-imagined dialectic on race relations.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
It's undeniably fascinating to watch this hypothetical experiment for a while. But White Man's Burden starts to feel like an only-passable Twilight Zone episode stretched into a full-length movie.eFilmCritic.comApril 03, 2005
A wierd and ungainly mixture of obvious racial issues and pseudo-action material.TheMovieReport.comAugust 07, 2004
Doesn't go too far beyond the basic set-up.Movie EyeMay 24, 2003
The racial message is crystal clear and the concept of turning the tables on oppression is rather interesting. Unfortunately, the movie is never focused or convincingly solid to realize the cynicism in its meandering material. At best, "Burden" is merelyArizona Daily StarDecember 24, 2002
Manages to approach significant social issues, but falters in its melodrama.MovieholeSeptember 17, 2002
Just when Travolta got his groove back..Boxoffice MagazineJune 05, 2002
A look at color relations that's likely to be more compelling for nonurban audiences than the latest take on drug dealing and gang banging in the 'hood.
