It centres on three unpleasant characters whose repulsive actions are amoral and almost impossible to care about.

Avoid at all costs.

Dog Eat Dog is dark, unpleasant and violent.

This is an unholy mess, but the unhinged performances make it enough of an oddity to be worth a look. Just don't say you weren't warned...

A crassly nihilistic crime movie that is brought to you by the veteran director Paul Schrader and the often dazzling lead actors Nicolas Cage and Willem Dafoe, Dog Eat Dog is a waste of their talents.
November 17, 2016
The way it gleefully embraces the violent, racist and misogynistic impulses of its ageing white male protagonists in post-recession America makes it feel sickeningly apropos.

A rambling, meandering experience ...

There's half an argument that this schlocky lowlife caper energises its director's visual imagination more than we've seen lately - hey, at least he's trying something - but it's not a juggling feat he can keep up all day.

The biggest waste is Cage: a brief spot of shit-losing would've gone a long way to elevating this forgettable thriller.

The plotting is muddy and the snickering amorality leaves a bad taste.

Even the crime itself fails to be clever or interesting, and the horrific bumbling of the characters carrying it out only makes the situation worse.

Dog Eat Dog is at its best when it's both strangely fascinating and repellant...But, like a fat tire with a nail, it loses air as it goes along and you're just left hoping that Cage and Dafoe bought themselves something nice with their paychecks.

Dog Eat Dog has a lot of crazy, scary and wonderful moving parts. It's just unfortunate that so few of them fit together.

I felt a bit more positive about "Dog Eat Dog" until the unnecessary violent ending that felt completely out of place with an uncharacteristic twist. It takes it down a notch.

The loopy performances, character quirks and throwback visual gimmicks help to disguise the more formulaic genre elements in the script, although the film never finds an emotional entry point amid its onslaught of bloody nihilism.
November 4, 2016
A movie that seemed to be ultimately interested in yelling at the audience, and talking to itself.
November 4, 2016
Dog Eat Dog may be successfully alienating, but that doesn't mean it's entertaining, thoughtful or even successfully provocative.

[I]t's a study of three characters who are so deluded about themselves and their criminality that it really only reinforces their delusions.

Too often the movie is content to come off like a cranky old uncle who's seen a lot more crime movies than you have.

Whatever you think is going to happen to these fellas, does.
