No one gives a dull performance and the story is compelling enough to keep you hooked from beginning to end.

This sincerely made thriller with an itty-bitty IQ will never be confused for "good," but it is fully immersive in its floundering failure.
March 20, 2019
The pretty standard and otherwise forgettable low-budget thriller has only the whacked-out performance by David Tenant going for it, but that's enough (he's worth it).

Tennant relishes the chance to deliver a heady blast of nostril-flaring villainy.

There is also a social dimension to their clash, with Cale, heir to a vast family fortune, breaking into the life of working-class Sean much as Sean broke into his, only with an added, overt sense of entitlement and superiority.
August 27, 2018
A tight little film which does a good job of living up to its bold premise, Bad Samaritan makes occasional slips but delivers, overall, a solid two hours of entertainment.
August 27, 2018
Dean Devlin finally steps out from Roland Emmerich's shadow with a tight, twisty little thriller.
August 26, 2018
The more ridiculous the film gets, the more entertaining it becomes.

[Bad Samaritan] ties on the odd scare and builds the thief's character better than the serial killer. [Full review in Spanish]
August 22, 2018
Filmmaker Dean Devlin assembles the movie with gritty, sleek style, offering just enough character development to hook the audience before things turn viciously over the top. And also rather silly.
August 15, 2018
It will never go down as one of the best suspense films, but it will entertain those looking for a little thrill. [Full Review in Spanish]
August 14, 2018
It's that dime-a-dozen thriller that's worth every penny.
May 21, 2018
It's no 'Silence of the Lambs,' but it's still solid and well-acted.
May 8, 2018
[David] Tennant plays Erendreich with bemused and chilling intensity and, like all good villains, he makes the audience sit up and pay attention to what he is going to do or say next.

Often stump-dumb. Its own title doesn't make much sense. More interesting than good, as you'll see if you stumble onto it on a streaming service in a few months. After all, it's not always about the image you're seeing, but the light behind it.
Top Critic
May 7, 2018
Bad Samaritan is a well-directed thriller with knuckle-chewing suspense.
May 5, 2018
A wildly entertaining guilty pleasure. As long as you don't mind checking your brain at the door, Bad Samaritan is a gripping, exhilarating and shocking crime thriller.
May 4, 2018
The idea behind this thriller isn't terribly fresh or original, but it works well enough thanks to Sheehan's relatable, believable, flawed hero and Tennant's terrifying psychopath.
May 4, 2018
It staggers between logic and illogic, eventually collapsing just far enough on the right side of the line to make this an entertaining bit of time-wasting.
May 4, 2018
I enjoyed the heck out of this cheerily implausible little underdog of a thriller.
