Eye for Film

The story is competently told, the direction suits the mood, and the performances are convincing even if the characters aren't very deep.

Drifts glumly from one ludicrous narrative development to the next.

Stutz has crafted a decent thriller, actually. A lesser-man's Body Heat

With more engaging leads this film might be one that people would want to see a second time--just to get straight all that happened.

A genre exercise that shows some promise, but descends from pleasant obfuscation into patent absurdity.

In this film about murder, the last 10 minutes are enough to kill me.

Based on a true story, "Rushlights" could have been a very standard, by the book imitation noir film. Instead, Stutz packs it with genuine surprises and emotion.

Polished but unmemorable.

Somehow the story can't quite tally with the rather familiar storyline.

Film Journal International

A lackluster neo-noir thriller set deep in the dark heart of Texas, Rushlights delivers plot twists galore. If only the protagonists, a pair of hard-luck L.A. teens, were interesting enough to make audiences care what becomes of them.

Maybe noir just feels a bit old at this point. No matter what, the movie isn't worth the Texas heat.

They say it isn't nice to kick a dog when it's down. But man, there are a lot of dogs in "Rushlights"...

There are too many twists in Antoni Stutz's uninvolving "Rushlights."

It all dwindles into "Who cares" long before the end of the road.

It's a lousy ending stapled to an underwhelming picture, leaving Rushlights more of a bungled card trick than a steamy, scary ride of intimidation.

Whatever pleasure could be derived from the movie's generically twisty plotting is negated by cardboard characterization, indifferent editing rhythms, and a score that sounds like it was pulled from a production music library.

If ever a movie signaled that the Quentin Tarantino copycat age of empty-headed wink-wink genre rehashing is still with us, "Rushlights" is that movie.
