3.5 of 5

“..taken as simply a tough-as-nails indie stalk / chase / revenge thriller, The Aggression Scale is sort of a low-budget ass-kicker..”
by Scott Weinberg [FEARnet]
3.5 of 5

“..overall The Aggression Scale establishes Miller as one of the most promising indie filmmakers working today..”
by Heather Wixson [Dread Central]
3 of 5

“..Miller makes good use of his budget with simple but entertaining action sequences involving a rolling truck and a used car lot, and shoots everything with a refreshing directorial clarity missing from far too many Hollywood movies..”
by Tyler Foster [DVD Talk]
3 of 5

“..as a direct-to-video flick, the movie is surprisingly better than what is commonly anticipated of its type, adding a slight twist to the home-invasion thriller that's interesting and fun..”
by M. Enois Duarte [High-Def Digest]

by Paloma Sharma [rediff.com]

A PROMISE :

“..awkward, passionless drama conveys neither the sensuality nor the drawn-out sense of longing required..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

FADING GIGOLO :

“..this second film is the keeper: the kind of keenly observed cultural clash that still finds room for dancing, a sultry fish-deboning (you just have to see it) and awakening..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
