Critic Reviews for Detonator

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

A repetitive, sluggishly paced nocturnal rumination on why we bother reuniting with old friends we purposefully left behind.

Damon Maulucci and Keir Politz make a fine feature debut with this small, punchy drama.

April 10, 2014 | Full Review…

The script is solid, but the film's greatest assets are Levine's visage and performance.

The film is intriguing in its character study and journey, buoyed by the performances of its leads.

April 11, 2014 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Sort of a minor-key, naturalistic variant on themes explored in Edgar Wright's 'The World's End,' as a suburban male 'soccer mom' is pulled back into a demimonde of punk rock music and sexual possibility by the surprise return of his 'toxic' old bandmate.
