- “[It] will thrill newbies and satisfy fans of the original (…) Gyllenhaal’s explosive performance keeps it fresh and moving along in different ways.” Kate Erbland: IndieWire
- “A clever close-quarters conceit that ends up feeling more like an actorly exercise than a gripping human drama (…) [It] overdoes both its protagonist’s inner turmoil and its story’s feverish intensity.” Tim Grierson: Screendaily
“Although both Fuqua and his ‘Southpaw’ star are essentially up to the task at hand, they’re let down by an exposition-heavy script that continually undercuts the crucial building tension” Michael Rechtshaffen: The Hollywood Reporter
Jake Gyllenhaal became known for the indie movie Donnie Darko (2001) and October Sky (1999).
We recommend The Guilty (2021), a smart thriller.
