The Hollywood Reporter has a review from the time of the film's release. Variety faults its inconsistency.
Empire Online gives it 5 out of 5 stars and calls it a "Brutal crime romp with a pair of charismatic central performances." Roger Ebert considers it a Great Movie and says, ""Bonnie and Clyde," made in 1967, was called "the first modern American film” by critic Patrick Goldstein, in an essay on its 30th anniversary. Certainly it felt like that at the time. The movie opened like a slap in the face. American filmgoers had never seen anything like it." Rotten Tomatoes has a rating of 88%.
