Despite some creative casting and a few good twists, Circus never manages to rise above its muddled screenplay.

Another Tarantino wannabe film that falls flat on its face artistically...

El Círculo del Crimen no aporta nada al género y es de esas películas que logran dar pena ajena

Too many twists and turns, from too many unexpected angles.

Audience Reviews for Circus

This film had the potential of bing a food British movid, the plot was pretty clever with great twists. Both John Hannah and Famke Janssen played good parts, but the comedy moments were really forced and why did it have to have to have Brian Connelly as the main gangster? There was this thing that Eddie Izzard was doing by singing songs relevant to the situation which didn't really come to anything. Some parts watchable, some parts cringable.
