All Critics (5)

Works fine when it sticks to drama, but when it ventures off into thriller cliché terrotory it bogs down considerably.

Audience Reviews for No Way Home

I quite enjoyed this movie, Tim roth was excellent!
Although it is quite a slow paced movie it keeps you interested as to what really happened and whats going to happen, although the story is a little bit predictable theres other things that surprise you!
Tim Roth plays an ex con who doesnt seem like the killing and is really emthursiactic about getting a job and making a life for himself! but not everything seems right and his brother soon shows is true colours!
The ending however was a bit disappointing! a bit unanswered and should have been better!!

Film Crazy

Super Reviewer

Fantastic character study and crime film by the much neglected Giovinazzo. Roth is great as the "slow" ex-con who used to be much smarter before an "accident" (very similar to The Lookout) while Russo in just as good as his slimy brother with a guilty conscience. Though it's not a masterpiece like Giovinazzo's other 2 films, it's still necessary viewing for fans of his work.
