  • Well plotted but dramatically flat thriller that's more a prospectus, a pitch for a more polished remake

    Mar 23, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Counterfeiters is distinctive enough in its characterization of Bridger and so efficient and engaging in its world-building that its mishandled climax shouldn't weigh so heavily against it.

    Mar 14, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Frame by frame, 'Counterfeiters' is a riveting movie. Filmmaker Bryce Hirschberg, who also plays the lead role, gives it all his heart and soul.
