Audience Reviews for Crawl

  • Feb 25, 2013
    A bar owner is double-crossed by the Croatian hitman he hired in this low budget Aussie thriller. Heavily inspired by 'Blood Simple' and 'Red Rock West', director China does a decent job of building tension but the story simply lacks enough meat to keep viewers interested. It's never made clear what exactly is occurring here, there just isn't enough character motivation revealed. Why did the hitman double-cross his client? Why does he hang around the Haig's house instead of fleeing? These sort of questions are left hanging while instead we get needless time-wasting scenes which add nothing. As a director, China does an adequate job but, as a screenwriter he's sadly lacking. Lead actress Haig stands out in an otherwise bland role.
