In his three-star review of "The Great Gatsby," which ran in Wednesday's Newsday, Rafer Guzmán called the movie "the most entertaining 'Gatsby' yet." Here's what four other critics had to say:

* "The cast is first-rate, the ambience and story provide a measure of intoxication and, most importantly, the core thematic concerns pertaining to the American dream, self-reinvention and love lost, regained and lost again are tenaciously addressed." -- The Hollywood Reporter

* "Baz Luhrmann's 'Great Gatsby' is all about the glitter, but it has no soul -- and the fact that he's directed it in 3-D only magnifies the feeling of artificiality." -- Associated Press

* "Jazzy, fizzy and often quite fun, Baz Luhrmann's "Pretty Good Gatsby" takes F. Scott Fitzgerald's Great American Novel out for a sometimes dazzling, always irreverent spin." -- McClatchy-Tribune News Service

* "Because Luhrmann has an eye for spectacle but is deaf to emotional detail, he has turned an exquisitely told story of doomed romance into a 3-D production with all the depth of a pop-up book." -- Los Angeles Times
