Pusher Reviews

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Sniffing into the seams of England's multiculti capital, it's best at showing the grungy, hustling-and-bustling city as a place of slowly uncoiling despair. A hyper-charged, buzzy take on the London night-scene-and one man slipping under it, for no-good.

Pusher has a neon-lit nervy energy -- at once slick and grungy -- and the sort of unabashed, screw-tightening rhythms that genre enthusiasts will embrace.

The most original British gangster flick in years.

Pusher is unnecessary for Refn fans that have followed his work from the beginning, but is more worthwhile for new viewers since they don't know what they're in for.

a perfectly serviceable race-against-the-clock thriller thanks to a powerful lead performance from Richard Coyle.

There's an ugly, jittery beauty to "Pusher," a very fine British redo of a 1996 Danish movie of the same title.

Roger Moore
McClatchy-Tribune News Service

A remake of a 1996 Danish thriller, it's a pulsating, propulsive and nerve-racking film that breathes new life into a genre whose tropes wore out long ago.

If we haven't caught on from earlier films that drug pushing is a thankless persuasion, maybe this is the movie that will pound in the lesson.

Much glossier, more bright-lights-big-city, and less jolting than the gritty 1996 original.

Observer [UK]

It's well enough made, but the plot is overly familiar.

This Pusher is a pleasingly nasty little jab, but the buzz is simply too shallow and too short lived.

Guardian

The Pusher remake may not have the full flavour of the original, but it makes brutally clear how the economics of drugs make paranoia and violence a fact of life.

A tragic myth of our times, worth retelling and thrillingly retold.

Pusher has gloss, panache and frenzy: three things missing from the average bog-standard British gangster film.

October 11, 2012

A fast-paced, slam-bang-ish, and tightly-coiled neo-noir.

Pusher is an exciting, visceral and utterly compelling film!

Luis Prieto's remake is ultra-stylish but it helps if you haven't seen Winding Refn's original Pusher trilogy.

Nail-biting and genuinely heartbreaking moments mean it's emotionally involving, even if it isn't the cheeriest drug dealer saga in town.

A bit livelier at turning the same screws.

Gets plenty right but lacks the hard-hitting vibe of the cult original, or a fresh take on gangster-pic London.
