Critic Reviews for Calibre

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (3)

Feels simultaneously familiar and fresh, just like a good, solid bout of genre-tweaking should do.

Jun 29, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Calibre [has] a pungent, intriguing layer of ambiguity that only sharpens the acute pain of the awful events so skillfully depicted.

Ben Baird's sound design, meanwhile, is a thing of fretful beauty, seamlessly meshing a barrage of natural effects with Anne Nikitin's creaking, squeaking, screeching score.

Top Critic

A tight piece of craftsmanship from top to bottom.

Aug 29, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Excellently shot and acted, and gutsy enough to not cop out when it counts, Calibre is one of the year's best genre efforts.

Jul 31, 2018 | Full Review…

While the first two acts are, more or less, standard yet entertaining fare in the genre, they also do subtle work so that the film can end as it does.

Audience Reviews for Calibre


Matt Palmer has crafted one of the best thrillers of the year. Calibre is the perfect example how Netflix is capturing a market that has long been forgotten by Hollywood. This is one of the most uncomfortable films to watch, it oozes with atmosphere and succeeds with the talent behind the camera. I really hope they stage a sequel to overcome that ending, but Palmer should distance himself and move on to bigger things. The key to the film is the lead chemistry of the actors and the supporting cast. Netflix has purchased well here and I hope they continue to provide interesting thrillers like this. This is where Netflix will succeed, not the giant Hollywood style films they attempt, e.g. Bright. 25/12/2018.
