Critic Reviews for City of Tiny Lights

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (4)

Travis's noir is entirely watchable, but it's only because of to Ahmed's captivating presence.

'The Big Sleep' with bruvs. Which isn't an entirely off-putting proposition.

April 3, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Though pleasant enough to watch, there's something not fully realized about the final product here.

September 15, 2016 | Full Review…

Engrossing, even if it doesn't quite measure up to its promise.

September 12, 2016 | Full Review…

Ultimately, the film's ambitions of inclusivity, both in its story and its casting, are more admirable than the execution.

July 19, 2017 | Full Review…

Ahmed (and Billie Piper, as his love interest) are decent, but despite its efforts, this film is only noir in that it mostly happens at night.
