Critic Reviews for A Girl and a Gun

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (6)

  • Overall, though, the film does portray the relationship between women and guns with nuance-and despite misgivings about gun ownership as a method of personal protection-is a welcome reprieve from the usual cinematic depictions of gun use.

  • Director Cathryne Czubek's well-researched, incredibly lively chronicle of the way guns are marketed to, coveted by, and portrayed with women is a vital glimpse into a cultural phenomenon.

    July 4, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • No matter how moving or morally ambivalent these women are, Ms. Czubek seems content to hop from one anecdote to another, unwilling to shape her findings into a larger investigation or deeper analysis.

    July 4, 2013 | Rating: 2/5
  • The subject is women and firearms. What about women and firearms? Well, did you know that some women use firearms? It's true!

    July 4, 2013 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • Since the conversation is unfocused and there's no real thesis, we get a girl and a gun but not really a movie.

    July 2, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Catheryne Czubek's documentary is itself like a shotgun, as its scatter-shot thematic blast is wide and lacking in precision.

  • There is little to this film that isn't very obvious and sometimes even oblivious.

  • A Girl and a Gun seems designed to encourage the growing number of American ladies packing heat, but it's practically reverse propaganda...
