TIME Magazine | February 20, 2009

No deep solutions are suggested in this subtle and meticulously observed study. Yet Director Norman Jewison has used his camera to extract a cer tain rough-cut beauty from each protagonist.

A.D. Murphy Variety | February 19, 2008

An excellent Sidney Poitier performance, and an outstanding one by Rod Steiger, overcome some noteworthy flaws to make In The Heat of the Night an absorbing contemporary murder drama.

Dave Kehr Chicago Reader | December 13, 2006

A decent piece of do-good cinema.

Geoff Andrew Time Out | February 09, 2006

Oozes sufficient Southern sweat and features enough admirably crumpled character faces to make up for its over-strident liberal rhetoric.

Bosley Crowther New York Times | May 20, 2003

A film that has the look and sound of actuality and the pounding pulse of truth.
