JOHNNY HANDSOME feels like a shiv jammed between your ribs in a prison-yard fight. It's clean and brutal and so ruthlessly efficient that it's opened a hole in you almost before you've realized it. The film is a modern urban fable, set in the Gothic underworld of New Orleans strip joints and back alleys... It's bracing to see Hill sticking true to his vision and, at the same time, looking for new ways to express it.
Hal Hinson, Washington Post, 29 Sept 1989
