Peter Debruge
"[It] may as well be 'Driving Miss Daisy' in reverse (...) We seldom get to see Mortensen in comic roles, but his goofy, sideways smile seems perfectly suited to this one (...) Ali is a marvel to watch"  POS

Peter Travers
Rolling Stone
"Thanks to the dream team of Mortensen and Ali, audiences will be cheering. And they’ll be right (…) Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

Todd McCarthy
The Hollywood Reporter
"Distinctive and amusing turns by Mortensen and Ali make Peter Farrelly’s first solo feature outing a lively and likable diversion (...) Two fine actors in responsive form, make it go down easily and enjoyably."  POS

A. O. Scott
The New York Times
"There is virtually no milestone in this tale of interracial male friendship that you won’t see coming from a long way off (...) [Mortensen and Ali] are good company, even if the trip itself might cause some queasiness"  NEU
United StatesUnited States M
Eric Kohn
"It’s an obvious but enjoyable period piece and a throwback to another era of Hollywood filmmaking, resurrected in the 21st century with two of the best actors working today (...) Farrelly tackles the material with a confidence that makes each beat count"  POS
United StatesUnited States M
Steve Pond
The Wrap
"Our investment in the characters rarely flags, thanks to Mortensen and Ali and a director who is interested in cleanly and efficiently delivering a story worth hearing."  POS

Christy Lemire
"It’s glossy and zippy, gliding along the surface of deeply emotional, complex issues while dipping down into them just enough to give us a taste of some actual substance (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 4)"  POS

Anna Swanson
Film School Rejects
"Green Book may not be revolutionary, and it does often play it safe when it could have dug deeper into its themes, but (...) as far as Oscar bait goes, there could certainly be worse front-runners than this smart and heartwarming film."  POS

Benjamin Lee
The Guardian
"[It] is entertainment pitched at a wide audience and is constructed in the most easily digestible way possible but it still serves a significant purpose to remind of the difficulties faced by those of colour (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

Tim Grierson
"'Green Book' is a thoroughly predictable and conventional true-life drama, but at least Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali make for decent company along the road"  NEU
