Right of the Weakest Reviews

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

The film, in the end, as solidly good as it is, rings a bit hollow, feels a little pointlessly bleak. The last sparks of the steel furnace where Robert and Jean-Pierre used to work have faded, and all that's left is for life to grind itself down.

The downbeat mood convinces. What might have been tedious becomes an involving and nail-biting thriller.

This solidly acted film struggles to balance its portrait of life amongst the have-nots in contemporary Liege with the melodramatic aspects of a crime thriller.

Total Film

Belvaux's sympathies for his marginalised subjects are beyond doubt; the film's at its best when observing how the characters' lives are constrained by their environments (adroitly captured by the widescreen lensing).

Don't come here looking for laughs: the conclusion is sobering stuff.

Consistently engaging account of decent folks scraping by in a former steel town builds suspense with a keen eye and a sharp ear for the pride of workers who no longer have work.

Dour and schematic drama about disenfranchised factory workers.

Underwhelming heist film in which a likable group of unemployed Belgian steel workers plot an armed robbery over their daily card game.

A misguided blasphemy of "Bicycle Thief," downloaded through film-noir affectations, this Competition Entrant is morally specious and narratively nonsensical.
