Critic Reviews for Apprentice

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (22) | Rotten (4)

  • At first "Apprentice" seems to be a basic revenge film in which Aiman stalks the man who killed his father. But it becomes psychologically more complex ...

    March 2, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Drenched in darkness and routinely visualizing its characters behind bars and alone in the frame, Apprentice teases a climax of bloody revenge, only to take a far more somber, complex turn.

    March 1, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Benoit Soler's fluid, revolving camera frequently visualizes what the main character can't verbalize, and writer-director Boo Junfeng treats his thorny topic with sensitivity, but the pat ending is a letdown.

    February 27, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A tsory that conflates the deeply intimate and the political while exploring what family ties mean and how they relate to national and (particularly in this film) professional relationships and obligations.

    February 27, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Boo Junfeng casually reinvigorates the prison drama, boiling its elements down to their primal essence.

    February 26, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • There's a certain undeniable perversity to being offered such intimate access to Death Row, and both Boo and Aiman show enormous compassion for the prisoners who find themselves there.
