The political manifesto of Levinson is bold and fresh and, as if it were a rock band formed by millennials in love with classic punk, will activate more than one conscience and fly more than one head. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 20, 2019
An ultra-violent ode to rape culture masquerading as a feminist manifesto.
Full Review | Original Score: .5/5

Bold, bloody and brilliant - Assassination Nation is required viewing for the 21st century feminist
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

It's sharp, energetic and completely necessary.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
January 10, 2019
A seriously impressive film passed off as flippant entertainment, Assassination Nation deserves a second look.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
December 29, 2018
A black comedy that gets too heavy to be light and too dumb to be bright.
Full Review | Original Score: C
December 28, 2018
As a fable, Assassination Nation is cynical, jaded, and defiant: in other words, vintage 2018.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
December 21, 2018
One of the more interesting films of the year with a pro-feminist message that's as timely as it is important.

December 13, 2018
In his latest film Assassination Nation, director and writer Sam Levinson taps into the nightmares of the Instagram and Snapchat generation. As the film opens, audiences are greeted with a trigger warning, which prefaces an hour and a half of pure chaos.

Assassination Nation has delivered exactly what I love about movies: it made me both feel and think.
December 9, 2018
It's about as edgy as a perfect sphere.
December 3, 2018
Every point the film wants to make has to be roared via lengthy speeches and declarations made straight down the lens. Any deeper meaning becomes lost. When the fires finally subside, there's not that much to be found in the ashes.

A ferocious satire for NOW, when Assassination Nation really ramps up, it hits like a baseball bat to the back of the head.

Levinson doesn't quite hit on the right tone in his attempts at juggling a lot of disparate styles and ideas... Still, this remains a frequently sharp and diverting piece of work. Worth a look.

Gleeful... I turned to myself and went, "wow."
November 27, 2018
Such literal storytelling doesn't logically or tonally mesh with later scenes of mass hysteria, violence, and absurdity.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/10
November 26, 2018
Here it is, the definitive movie for the Donald Trump era. Like Trump, it's crass, disturbing and devoid of subtext. Unlike him, it has style, self-awareness and a sense of humour.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 26, 2018
Even for a film that's scattershot by design, it's excessively disorganised, but it is fierce and inventive enough to justify its existence.

November 26, 2018
It's a clever idea but its stylish and wickedly enjoyable execution is even better.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
November 26, 2018
There is an awful lot going on, it doesn't all work, but overall this is something that doesn't just have great style, it has real substance.
