Movie Reviews

  • whereas Steve McQueen's "Widows" is alive with an electric tension and features a powerfully understated performance from Viola Davis, "The Kitchen" squanders its strong cast in a routine, and sometimes unbelievable, story that never quite comes together
    2 of 5 by Robert Kojder [Houston Chronicle ]
  • unlike such forebears as "Goodfellas" or "American Hustle", "The Kitchen" lacks the gravitas and subversive charge that characterizes the best gangster pictures; You might be able to stand “The Kitchen,” but it could use a little more heat
    1.5 of 4 by Ann Hornaday [Washington Post ]
  • the plot of "The Kitchen" twists and buckles but it never fully breathes
    by Justin Chang [Los Angeles Times ]
  • still, despite some major narrative missteps, the film's bold twist on the mob drama still has a refreshing quality. Maybe "The Kitchen" would have fared better as a series, with more time for its potential material to simmer
    Review rate : C+ by Kate Erbland [Indiewire ]
  • murky and uncertain of itself, "The Kitchen" is a movie in desperate search of a tone: not quite comedic, nor especially thrilling
    2 of 5 by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York ]
  • like so many films derived from the pictures and words of a graphic novel, "The Kitchen" feels perfunctory and sterile and under-detailed; even for a revenge-driven thriller in the vigilante spirit, this one's seriously hypocritical
    2 of 4 by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune ]
  • despite the terrific trifecta of talents in its leads Melissa McCarthy , Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss, and the potential chemistry that offers, the movie provides little sizzle beyond its central conceit, thanks largely to clumsy editing
    Review rate : C- by Kimber Myers [The Playlist ]
  • clumsy crime story The Kitchen is a waste of great actresses; By the time the script wends its way toward a bullet-riddled finale, you don't really care about the heat anymore; you just want to get out of "The Kitchen"
    Review rate : C- by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • "The Kitchen", a late summer, female-led adaptation of a little-known DC comic, is the worst kind of bad movie; made with such careless abandon that anyone brave enough to buy a ticket should automatically ask for a refund
    1 of 5 by Benjamin Lee [The Guardian ]
