Critic Reviews for Black Out

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (6)

Some of the gags are funny, some are stale, and some are stale but still funny.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

A tasting menu of hard-man predicaments that never offer more than a pale introduction to the innocent mark flailing at their center.

New York Times
Top Critic

In terms of character and plot, not one element of the intended wild ride escapes self-consciousness or becomes the least bit involving.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

A self-aware, borderline self-reflexive action-comedy from the Netherlands, Arne Toonen's Black Out is derivative in a way that undermines its wry sense of self.

Village Voice
Top Critic

Black Out will pass the time, but the people who like The Hangover III and wish it had more ultraviolence are probably the key demographic.

The Playlist

Black Out strains to shock and offend, but at this point, 20 years after Pulp Fiction, its conception of transgression is so familiar and toothless that it borders on quaint.

The Dissolve

Black Out is just energetic and smartly written enough to make up for its obvious lack of originality.

We Got This Covered

The film's references to other stylistic touchstones, while thematically apt, rarely carry any sort of critical inquiry, as if Toonen was more interested in homage for the sake of homage than as a means of contextualizing his worldview.

Slant Magazine

Packed with colorful characters and gnarly plot twists, Arne Toonen's movie is a stylish, bloody romp.

Oregonian

An Energetic, Twisted, Colorful and Wickedly Violent Ride.
