Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper make (mostly) beautiful music in A Star Is BornEntertainment Weekly (B+)
But what’s surprising about Gaga is how charismatic she is without her usual extreme stage makeup, outlandish wigs and inventive costumes.TIME
Gaga, in an ebullient and winningly direct performance, never lets her own star quality get in the way of the character.Variety
The real surprise here is not Cooper, but Gaga. More than a newly born star, hers never stops growing.The Film Stage (B+)
Cooper and Lady Gaga are dynamite together.The Wrap
Her buzzy movie has a lot going for it, including a vibrant soundtrack and compelling performances all around. Best Original Song Oscar nods are in the bag.US Magazine 3/4⭐️
Stars, after all, are not born, they’re made, and no one knows that better than Lady Gaga.The Playlist (B+)
Cooper and Lady Gaga bring an impressive intimacy and tenderness to their scenes together.Independent UK 3/5⭐️
Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga hit all the right notes in this update of the classic Hollywood musical.Little White Lies
Lady Gaga is a revelation in the rebooted fame tragedy, infusing the material with soulfulness and vulnerability.Time Out 4/5⭐️

Gaga’s acting debut is impressive, especially, as is to be expected, in the musical sequences.New York Magazine/Vulture

Apart from an early goosebumps moment, this adaptation is mostly rubbish and lacks screen chemistry between its stars.The Times 2/5⭐️
Every time Gaga (real name Stefani Germanotta) sings in this film — many tunes of her own composition — she completely kills it.Evening Standard 4/5⭐️
The live scenes are electric, a remarkable feat of both performance and filmmaking.Empire Online 5/5⭐️
Cooper acts wonderfully, channelling that sixties’ thing where we feel the self-destruction is what makes this music. And Lady Gaga is sensationally good. Film Companion
