What to know

critics consensus

Clash is far from an easy watch, but the story's ripped-from-the-headlines energy more than makes up for its unrelentingly grim tone and sketchily developed characters. Read critic reviews

Critic Reviews for Clash

All Critics (45) | Top Critics (18) | Fresh (42) | Rotten (3)

  • Arguably one of the most important Egyptian filmmakers currently working today, Mohamed Diab is an unflinching director who does not shy away from explicit commentary about current events in his homeland.

    September 5, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The van becomes a microcosm of the world outside: chaotic, out of control, cruel, but broken intermittently by glimpses of humour and humanity.

    July 24, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Within this roiling Petri dish, the filmmakers cultivate a dynamic portrait of Egypt, with its dense social, political and religious layers.

    September 14, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Its limited point-of-view says enough to the original horror and poignantly makes humanity a non-political issue.

    August 25, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A film like this needs its people to underline what it means to be human during times of political strife, but with so many bodies shoved inside the van, it's difficult to keep track of who's who and why they're mad.

    August 23, 2017 | Full Review…
  • "Clash" turns into a full-fledged horror movie, albeit one without the fake comfort of a supernatural or science-fiction pretext. It's just man's inhumanity to man, in full sway.
