  • When "BuyBust" finally combusts, it's often simultaneously spectacular and disturbing.

    August 10, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • So often bogged down by pseudo-naturalistic long takes and generic cop/robber power dynamics that it makes one wonder what the point of watching such a film is.

    August 10, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Featuring one villain in leopard pants and another in a bathrobe, "BuyBust" is surprisingly funny for a movie that's basically a massacre in progress.

  • It feels like the film is trying to have it both ways, turning violence into a joyride even as it condemns it.

  • Goes beyond easy moral binaries to highlight how Duterte's warped worldview has made monsters out of everyone from the police to the peddlers to the ordinary people in between...

  • A superbly executed action film about drug squad members fighting for their lives in a maze-like Manila slum that resembles nothing less than hell on earth.

  • Rough around the edges and chaotic, and full of weird-as-hell flourishes, it's mean and violent and bleak as hell-be prepared for beheadings and morally questionable dirty deeds American movies shy away from.

    July 1, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • The film starts a bit slowly, building the tension and introducing the characters, but as soon as the story moves to the slums, the action picks up and never actually stops, taking over the whole narrative.
