February 26, 2021
A total mess of a movie.
February 26, 2021
The Russo Brothers' radical study of the pressures of being an American man is a tough go, but Holland's performance is worth it.
February 26, 2021
A massive, rhapsodic crime epic about a former soldier's spiral into drugs and robbery.
February 26, 2021
Cherry comments on itself compulsively, and the results are mixed.
February 26, 2021
Aggressively unpleasant.
February 26, 2021
Strong performances and a fascinating story keep the film from being a complete failure, but aren't enough to save the ambitious directors from being left to their own devices.
February 26, 2021
While it can feel overly busy, and a bit long, Cherry works for the most part. In his latest dramatic turn, Tom Holland continues to display an impressive range.
February 26, 2021
Cherry is a film so self-serious that there were moments I was concerned that it was supposed to be a parody that never once winked at its audience.
February 26, 2021
It's no surprise that Holland's performance is in the fore. He is never found lacking.
February 26, 2021
Joe and Anthony Russo treat the material with a flashy visual style which, combined with Holland's constant narration, give the impression the film was adapted from a graphic novel or comic - perhaps a grittier approach was in order here.
February 26, 2021
Unwilling or unable to tap into ... deeper emotions and concerns, the Russo brothers ... focus exclusively on the sprawling surface elements of their movie.
February 26, 2021
Cherry feels like a movie full of people swinging for the fences and popping the ball straight into the sky for an easy out.
February 26, 2021
An attempt to be everything at once, which leaves it feeling like nothing but an empty mishmash of [the Russos'] favorite influences.
February 26, 2021
One of the most uncomfortable movies I've seen recently. Not because violence, drugs and crime, but because of the contemptuous way it treats its characters, despite the excellent work by Holland and Bravo. [Full review in Spanish]
February 25, 2021
Caps-lock filmmaking of the most frustrating order. It's like a 2000s music video about substance abuse masquerading as a film of substance, the stage version of "American Idiot" without chemistry, camaraderie or a point beyond "Drugs ... WHOA, bro!"
February 25, 2021
Meanwhile, the Russos are ensuring that you never forget you're watching a movie, and a stylized one at that.
February 25, 2021
Not every decision works, and certain technical aspects are a bit much, but Cherry is bold and beautiful at times. Tom Holland's raw and intense performance is as good as advertised.
February 25, 2021
Just wish the two young leads added a bit more heft to this good-looking, multigenre, Cleveland-based tale. The Michael Rispoli cameo is a much welcome highlight.
February 25, 2021
Cherry's aggressive filmmaking style and long runtime wears thin. But the Russo Brothers smartly take their feet off the gas at a critical point. Allowing the cast breathing room to show the awful truth of addiction.
February 25, 2021
[Directors Anthony and Joe Russo] adopted a style in Cherry that is so flashy, so in-your-face, and so self-indulgent that the story didn't really come to life.
