Los Angeles Times

By Kevin Thomas
It is a bravura work that attests to Pineyro's command of a style rich in texture and nuance and also of multilayered material.

Austin Chronicle

By Marc Savlov
Well worth seeing if you have even the slightest interest in guns and sex and the interplay between the two (and who doesn't?), Burnt Money also has, you'll forgive the pun, style to burn.

TV Guide

By Ken Fox
The most affecting parts of this film are its quieter, character-driven moments, and it's beautifully acted; if there is indeed an "Argentinean New Wave" afoot, Brédice might be its Anna Karina.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer

By Paula Nechak
Director Marcelo Pineyro imbues the film with mood and style and yet the violent climax holds little thrall as a lack of character development makes it had to care about the robbers' fate.

By V.A. Musetto
A stylish look and a fair amount of hot and heavy sex (mostly hetero), and the final shootout is pretty nifty.

What makes this one stand out is the tugging, melancholy romance hiding behind the curtain of blood.

Mr. Showbiz

By Kevin Maynard
This bed-swapping crime story is ultimately too protracted, but Piñeyro's direction is richly atmospheric, full of noir shadows and strong period detail.

Boston Globe

By Wesley Morris
Hopped up on standard action riffs, most of the film feels like hand-me-downs purchased from the John Woo outlet.
