Critic Reviews for A Vigilante

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

As an actress, Olivia Wilde has been something of a shape-shifter, but in this movie she seems to be burning through all her previous roles to find something essential.

March 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Putting a deliberately unromantic spin on its wish-fulfillment scenario, the film scratches a genre itch without using it as an excuse ... for vicarious sadism.

March 12, 2018 | Full Review…

A Vigilante overcomes its blemishes by Olivia Wilde's haunting performance as a woman determined to right society's wrongs.

October 10, 2018 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

A bleak, challenging, and angry piece of cinema, A Vigilante uses familiar genre tropes to explore uncomfortable truths.

June 3, 2018 | Full Review…

A Vigilante succeeds not by exploiting torture, but instead shifting focus to Olivia Wilde's painful, so very real performance.

March 15, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Not only does Daggar-Nickson reimagine a reductive reverie into one of harrowing, feminine empowerment, but she does so in a way that is wary of violence, even while using it to defang the type of toxic masculinity that has long wallowed in this genre.
