The film plays like the interrupted fantasy of some melancholic teenager who falls asleep listening to ultra-hip tracks on his iPod.

A fatuous thriller masquerading as a trashy, vigorous love story, Bond's latest is perhaps one of the most ridiculous and flawed films released this year -- yet remains curiously lovable.

Ultimately, Charlie Countryman bites off more than it can chew and winds up feeling more absurd than memorable.

A wildly unauthentic offering, that manages to take such raw, human emotions, and produce a picture that revels, frustratingly, in frivolity and irreverence.

As for Shia, he's wildly self-indulgent and narcissistic: all puppy eyes, emoting and angsting like there's no tomorrow. He just doesn't know when eneouf is eneouf.

The weird filmography of Shia LaBeouf, from Fury to Nymphomaniac via Transformers, continues with an ecstasy-fuelled excursion to eastern Europe in the bizarre The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman.
October 31, 2014
An eccentric, energetic muddle of a film that is badly overcooked by commercials director Fredrik Bond.
October 30, 2014
Shia LaBeouf continues his relentless campaign to prove himself the most tiresome person in the history of cinema, or showbusiness, or the universe.

There's quirky, and then there's straight-up annoying.
October 30, 2014
A tedious film; its death seems necessary, even merciful.

Mostly, this is empty, ugly and pretentious.

The ugly step-child of In Bruges with none of the class or wit, Charlie Countryman is truly terrible.
January 26, 2014
Trite indie-hipster exercise in blending romance, violence, and quirk.

Dropping acid must be far more entertaining than watching this pretentious mess ...
November 22, 2013
... an overwrought and muddled mess with little redemptive value.

There's no peaceful, affecting middle ground here, just a lot of noise, color, and empty feelings competing for attention, with little squeezing through the thick coating of artifice.

The haphazard use of magical realism and the ever-shifting thrust of the narrative makes the film wear out its welcome long before it's over.
November 15, 2013
Tonally adolescent, the film is enraptured with the emo-ness and ecstasy of love...Love may be all you need, but, sheesh, give it a rest for a second.
November 15, 2013
True love may be worth doing anything to attain, but I can't say "Charlie Countryman" is worth the time investment to learn such a truth.

Somewhere along the way, we the audience, lose track of the tremendous acting and directing potential when we start to wonder why we ever cared about these people in the first place?
