Critic Reviews for Dead in a Week (Or Your Money Back)

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (4)

It's only Tom Wilkinson's typically expert performance that saves Dead in a Week (Or Your Money Back) from having to live up to its subtitled bargain with moviegoers.

"Dead in a Week" strains too hard to find the lighter side of professional murder - like a Coen brothers version of "John Wick," but without the inspired touch of either.

Wilkson does a great job of bringing depth to Leslie. He helps to keep the film moving even in its uneven sections.

For a film built around a character that could theoretically die at any moment from a hollow point kiss to the back of the head, there's astoundingly little tension.

Audience Reviews for Dead in a Week (Or Your Money Back)

There's a place for movies like Dead in a Week, small films that pick the thing they want to do and follow through on it. Movies ike this usually end up being at the very least moderately successful (in terms of quality) and the Brits are particularly good at it. This isn't the sort of movie that I'm going to hold dear to my heart for all time or anything, but I'm glad that Dead in a Week is good, saves me from having to make some sort of "My Money Back" joke.
