Critic Reviews for Downtown: A Street Tale

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (5)

Amounts to little more than a downbeat soap opera.

May 22, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

As maudlin and overly familiar as it is earnest.

May 11, 2007 | Full Review…

As Downtown plods toward its Christmas Eve-set climax, the film's tendency to OD on melodrama detracts from its grittier moments.

April 21, 2007 | Rating: 3/6 | Full Review…

Earnest intentions can't begin to save this clumsy cautionary tale about teens and twentysomethings trying to survive on the mean streets of Manhattan.

April 20, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

A hackneyed melodrama partly redeemed by a cast convinced that it's performing Tennessee Williams.

April 20, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/5

[Director] Zielinski's attempts at serving up grunge and grittiness largely fall flat. Scenes of sex and drug use are typically accompanied by a swooning and intrusive soundtrack.
