Movie Reviews

  • this adaptation is pretty good, if also violent and a bit overblown
    2.5 of 4 by Mark Feeney [Boston Globe ]
  • the well-crafted film's principal arcs may be largely predictable, but it's an emotionally satisfying and gripping watch
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • the fiery explosions and chase sequences are handsomely shot, but the plot is undeniably absurd and the ominous/rousing soundtrack downright hokey. The plot is undeniably absurd, but the performances and banter make this worth watching
    4 of 5 by Charlotte O'Sullivan [London Evening Standard ]
  • the drama is suspenseful, but lacks strong plot; while the film has all of the makings of a memorable neo-western and the protagonists are worth rooting for, its premise is lacking and vague
    3 of 5 by Mae Abdulbaki [ScreenRant ]
  • the contours of this story, and the tinges of genuine melancholy thrown into our path along the way, are very much to the point. They make it all work, and make it worth it
    3.5 of 5 by K. Austin Nichols [Rolling Stone ]
  • really, every actor is likable and, all by themselves, good here. It's that each situation is more ridiculous than the last and none of it fits together, even when everything gets tossed into the narrative blender toward the end
    2.5 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • one of the best thrillers of our time; "Those Who Wish Me Dead" has great old-fashioned storytelling set against a breathtakingly beautiful backdrop, and there's never a wasted moment or throwaway line of dialogue in this expertly constructed story
    4 of 4 by Richard Roeper [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • Angelina Jolie phones it in for this barely functioning action-drama; "Those Who Wish Me Dead" feels like several screenplay scraps stapled into something that just might pass as a movie
    1.5 of 4 by Rafer Guzman [Newsday ]
  • a lean and mean throwback of a thriller bolstered by excellent performances and first-class filmmaking. Occasionally bites off more than its CG budget can chew, but when director Taylor Sheridan keeps the action grounded, it’s sweaty palms central
    4 of 5 by Chris Hewitt [Empire Magazine ]
  • "Those Who Wish Me Dead" -- an enjoyable, absorbing, characterful testament to shuffling the whole deck of genre conventions, and then politely setting it on fire
    by Jessica Kiang [Los Angeles Times ]
