What to know

critics consensus

With its serious-minded story, Crisis aims higher than many crime thrillers -- but uneven acting and a spotty script mean the end result falls far short of its goals. Read critic reviews

Critic Reviews for Crisis

All Critics (130) | Top Critics (22) | Fresh (79) | Rotten (51)

  • I enjoyed Crisis. The performances are first rate and the tension builds throughout to a climax and then an aftermath.

    March 26, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a union of crime and politics of the kind that you might expect to find on one of the streaming services, but it's given extra heft by its broad canvas and ambitious segues.

    March 25, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • For all of its good intentions, the generic Crisis isn't showing us anything new.

    March 19, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Those who have died or spent years tackling the opioid crisis deserve better than this.

    March 17, 2021 | Full Review…
  • The film's narrative and characters reason that any difficult situation can be solved with blind brute force and a pistol. If you're looking for a cutting critique of the American addiction industry, look elsewhere.

    March 11, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a little too all over the place, with a few too many movies trying to be contained in this to be able to come together and make sense.
