Critic Reviews for Cuckoo

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

[A] workaday psychological thriller which, although decently crafted, lacks even a scintilla of subtlety or ambition.

Top Critic

It's poorly plotted, deeply uninvolving tosh that makes you cringe for Grant and the estimable Tamsin Greig as his colleague and former protégé.

Full Review… | December 21, 2010
Daily Express

A centrepiece monologue from Grant on CIA experimentation shows some style, but it's too little, too late, and is rendered moot by the underwhelming climax.

Total Film

An unsettling, unconventional and delicately-handled piece quite unlike anything our film industry is pumping out these days.

Full Review… | December 17, 2010
Daily Mirror [UK]

An alarming head-scratcher, but hopefully a blip for this still-promising creative team.

Full Review… | December 16, 2010
Daily Telegraph

Creepy claustrophobic for a bit, it dissolves quickly into suspenseless drift - not all of it coherent.
