Critic Reviews of "Oliver"New York Daily NewsFebruary 27, 2015
Oliver! is a timeless classic that will be as lovable in 10 or 20 years as it is today.New York TimesFebruary 24, 2014
The focus of the movie is so wide, and the logistics of the production so heavy, that Oliver himself, dutifully played by 9-year-old Mark Lester, gets flattened out and almost lost, as if he had been run over by a studio bulldozer.VarietyFebruary 19, 2008
There's plenty of mileage left in the famous story.TIME MagazineFebruary 19, 2008
After a season of watching inane twitching in the name of dance, the viewer is most happily greeted by Onna White's choreography, an exuberant step-by-step exploration of Victorian zeal.Chicago ReaderDecember 13, 2006
In retrospect, it seems emblematic of the triviality Reed descended to in the last years of his career. The Third Man it's not.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Reed is craftsman enough to make an efficient family entertainment out of Lionel Bart's musical, but not artist enough to put back any of Dickens' teeth which Bart had so assiduously drawn.The SpectatorApril 07, 2015
Mistrust a movie with too many close-ups of Bisto Kid children and doleful dogs: they suggest a director cleverly boxing his way out of some very tight script corners.Empire MagazineFebruary 24, 2014
Even if you're not a fan of the musicals, Oliver is so witty, so bright and so endearing that even the iciest viewer should start melting in its corona.Radio TimesFebruary 24, 2014
Today, it works well as a child's introduction to Dickens.Total FilmFebruary 19, 2013
In adapting Lionel Bart's lavish musical for the screen, director Carol Reed tempered the sticky sentimentality with suitably Dickensian scenes of squalor.Common Sense MediaDecember 26, 2010
Glorious musical based on Dickens' Oliver Twist.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsMarch 18, 2008
Has little bite.
