Fresh: Ms. Theron has ventured far beyond mere surface impersonation -- although that is startling enough -- to an insightful penetration of her subject's psyche.
- Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Wednesday, January 21, 2004
Fresh: Theron] captures the essence of the woman, a lifelong victim who preys on her customers with the determined sadness of someone who has finally snapped inside.

Fresh: Charlize Theron gives her finest performance yet in the unlikely role of serial killer Aileen Wuornos in this riveting depiction of the Florida prostitute's decent into madness.
- Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com, Thursday, June 24, 2010
A great acting performance from Charlize Theron is what stand out the most. Telling the true story and sad decline of a prostitute turned serial killer. I think that fact it's based on a true story makes it more interesting, however the story as such is quite straight forward.

Charlize Theron thoroughly deserved her Oscar for this one as it wasn?t just her make-up that made her convincing, she really got into the part!
