Critic Reviews for A Cool Fish

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (4)

  • Rao has an eye for kooky irony and knows how to get the most from his actors, and he clearly has a few things to say about modern China, but his ambition occasionally exceeds his grasp.

    Nov 27, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The Chinese film "A Cool Fish" is one of those bold genre collisions of crime, comedy and pathos that either carries you along on its currents, or leaves you a disaffected bystander, and the latter is the more likely outcome here.

    Nov 14, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Why see A Cool Fish? Good question, I don't know. Its plot, action, and acting are underwhelming.

    Dec 17, 2018 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…
  • A mix of parallel missteps offset by hard but unassuming social commentary that slowly comes to the fore even as the improbable storylines are tied together.

    Dec 8, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Aiming for a mix of postmodern caper and grassroots social commentary, it's a hectically plotted misfire that comes up short on both fronts.
