Critic Reviews for Bad Day for the Cut

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

A taut vengeance thriller that doesn't completely come together as one would hope but has enough solid entertainment value, well-directed visuals, and nasty twists and turns to justify a look.

Manages to develop its own distinct flavor while fitting snugly into the general tradition of latter-day U.K. gangster pics, with their rueful humor, colorful characters and realistically nasty violence.

Baugh and his co-writer Brendan Mullin have a good feel for how they can push the absurdity of the situation without turning the whole thing into farce.

Bad Day for The Cut is a Northern Irish revenge film that, despite feeling somewhat predictable, is solidly entertaining.

July 2, 2017 | Full Review…

There is a strong suggestion that cycles of vengeance merely go around and around, an observation of particular poignancy for a country with a recent history so mired in conflict and one that in making Bad Day for the Cut is at its most insightful.

As a whole, first-time feature filmmaker Baugh has a lot to be proud of with Bad Day for the Cut, and aspects of his story hit me in ways I didn't see coming.

Audience Reviews for Bad Day for the Cut

Vengeance Thrillers are still kickin', and Bad Day for the Cut is another hit for the genre. Not a marked improvement on anything, or a new way of doing the bit, just a well-acted, taut crime film that I enjoyed the time I spent with.
