Critic Reviews for A Violent Man

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (5)

  • Writer-director Matthew Berkowitz's crime drama "A Violent Man" has all the pungent cynicism of a classic film noir but lacks the urgency.

    February 8, 2019 | Full Review…
  • ... the film is still a worthy installment in the neo-noir cannon, if only for its pursuit of a story that isn't styled after Harmony Korine's particular brand of "chaos in paradise" narratives in America's southeastern corridor.

    November 6, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A thoughtful character-driven thriller is buried somewhere beneath the clichés that eventually overwhelm this uneven mixed-martial arts melodrama.

    February 9, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A Violent Man is a good film with a good cast and story. Fans of film noir are going to appreciate the final product.

    February 8, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • Doesn't offer much to make it worth contender status.

    February 8, 2019 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…
  • A Violent Man struggles to be a sports film and a thriller, stripping either of any sense of dramatic urgency.
