Movie Reviews

  • they're not enough to make The Devil's Knot anything more than a wan gloss on a horrific nightmare
    1 of 4 by Rene Rodriguez [Miami Herald ]
  • the grief, the madness of the community, the plain stupidity of the cops, the mass protests that followed the convictions, the horrible power of it all - none of it comes across in this drab film
    Review rate : D by Tom Long [Detroit News ]
  • the film is not nearly as evocative as Egoyan's 1997 masterpiece The Sweet Hereafter (also about children who died tragically), it is still an intrinsically fascinating story
    2.5 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • The Devil's Knot isn't a bad film. It's just not a very good one. It's certainly not a film one would expect from Egoyan
    2 of 4 by Tirdad Derakhshani [Philadelphia Inquirer ]
  • it's a very standard retelling
    2 of 4 by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger ]
  • Egoyan's cool gaze fails to fully serve the boiling narrative of Devil's Knot, a story that seems destined to forever elude a satisfactory resolution
    2 of 4 by Peter Howell [Toronto Star ]
  • Egoyan has rounded up an impressive supporting cast, including Amy Ryan, Mireille Enos and Alessandro Nivola. But no one is given the chance to make a memorable impact
    2 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News ]
  • "Devil's Knot" ends after the trial, so this movie is the tale of a Salem-style lynch mob. It's as preachy as "The Crucible," with the score permanently set on "mournful"
    1.5 of 4 by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post ]
