The human instinct of self-preservation is shown in a brutally honest light through characters that are authentic and relatable.
A nondescript action thriller that will be easily and swiftly forgotten.
The big problem is that the lead character is uninteresting, the family is boring, and there isn’t a soul to root for.
A star-studded misfire that is smug, irritating, and borderline intolerable.
The staging of this film, coupled with the brisk, brainy script, will send literary lovers and theater enthusiasts into fits of delight.
Every element of haunting noir feels flawless on its own, but Del Toro brings them all together to craft a film of near perfection.
