Critic Reviews for American Hangman

  • The film is done in by its cardboard indictment of The System. Trial by social media is a good subject for a movie, but not when it spends so much time smacking its lips at the corruption it's pointing its finger at.

  • American Hangman is college-level death penalty discourse, appropriately armed with what appears to be a college-level production budget.

    January 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Coneybeare appears to be constructing workplace dramas based on things he knows only from other, better movies.

    January 3, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It starts to feel a little bit phony.

    September 13, 2019 | Full Review…
  • [It] makes a mystery out of a few things that are too easy to guess, so it takes a while to get going. However, thanks to sharp direction, an original take on the dramatic police procedural, and a truly excellent, very game cast, the movie is worthwhile.

    January 7, 2019 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…
  • This modest but pessimistic drama about social ills may feel a little familiar, but the intelligent banter, a superior central performance, and one or two likable supporters keep it crackling along.
