Critic Reviews for A Kind of Murder

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (11)

  • [Director Andy Goddard] just doesn't develop a level of intrigue or tension that you'd expect from a narrative that is built on double identities, perceptions, classism, and homicide.

    March 21, 2017 | Rating: D | Full Review…
  • A handsome period piece that plays more like a scant-clues mystery than like the psychological thriller it intends to be.

Audience Reviews for A Kind of Murder

  • Jan 08, 2017
    Lovers of film noir capable of overlooking a frustratingly banal story may want to devote 90 minutes to crime tale. The film's visuals are gorgeous, but the story colorless.
