Violet & Daisy Reviews

Christine N. Ziemba
Paste Magazine

Essentially, the film is Tarantino-ultralite -- just without the crisp dialogue, graphic violence or much of a plot.

Daily Herald (IL)

The bouncy, blackly comedic cartoon that begins this movie segues into a suspense-challenged, severely sincere drama that winds up, much like Violet and Daisy frequently do, without any bullets.

If you want to see Saoirse bumping people off, go with the stylish "Hanna" instead.

Ronan is good at shifting between killer and kid. But it's impossible not to wish she would once again have a role that matches her talent.

A frequently off-putting film about two teenage assassins.

Violet's and Daisy's combination of girlish naiveté and John Woo-style intensity probably seemed much niftier on the page.

The script might have pushed harder, and included more incident and less of the rote psychologizing that bogs things down in the final reel.

A candy-colored offering of bloodshed and banter so self-conscious that it alienates the viewer early and often.

Violet and Daisy's cutesy chatter, and violence set to great old songs, are the movie's reasons for being. Which ultimately isn't enough ammo.

Leads Bledel and Ronan show spark and interest to lean into the shaming Fletcher initially appears to value, but their efforts are gradually flooded by a helmer who doesn't quite know what type of movie he wants to make.

Fletcher must have thought the dark comedy would indemnify him against the cascading illogic of the plot.

Talky and artificial, it moves like a sort of lobotomized Hal Hartley movie ...

Fletcher should have done more than applauding himself after writing 'Diablo Cody' on one hand and 'Quentin Tarantino' on the other.

We Got This Covered

Violet & Daisy is a tonal sugar high in all the worst ways - an overload of marshmallows and lollipops which work awkwardly with the whole contract killing theme Fletcher attempts to use as a funny contrast.

Chris Barsanti
Film Journal International

This smartly acted but over-directed and woozy hit-girl comedy, on the shelf since 2011, garners a few chuckles early on but swiftly plunges right off the rails.

Artsy-fartsy gibberish executed with a staggering incoherence that smacks of desperation.

Fletcher ... drowns his directorial debut in the sort of quirky yak-yak-yak conversations seemingly required of modern movies about hit men.

The key relationships are well drawn, if not especially revealing of anything human, and director Fletcher sometimes dares some welcome absurdity.

A twisted, spirited exercise in stark juxtaposition, a grindhouse fairy tale of sorts that pairs the sugary sweet with the nastily violent.

Violet & Daisy will just make you want to revisit "Hanna" again once it's over. Even with all of its crafty peculiarity and poignant sentimentality, Violet & Daisy is no Hanna.
