Plausibly explores the question of whether a liaison initially based on a carnal assault and fueled by an unquenchable lust has any chance of evolving into a relationship based on intimacy, affection and genuine trust.

Someday filmmakers will recognize that blackened teeth and bad makeup make beautiful actresses neither ugly nor brave.

Don't Move is saved from outright awfulness by the performances of its two leads.

You don't like Don't Move, you admire it for daring to be a bit more complex, for caring about characters who are hard to care about and for plowing forward through all manner of ugly business.

Cruz...can't rescue the film as a whole from its combination of soapoperatic melodrama and pretentious musings on life and love.

Emocionalmente complexo, beneficia-se das belíssimas atuações da dupla principal, falhando apenas na escolha equivocada dos temas musicais e ao exagerar no melodrama.
| Original Score: 4/5

It has grand flourishes, bold strokes and a soundtrack that swells with emotional Italian and American rock, but it doesn't go over the edge of sentimentality. It's too hard-edged and its acting is too restrained and fine for that.
| Original Score: 3/4

The gritty performances outweigh the film's outrageous dramatics.

Two desperate, unlikable people hungry for any thread of compassion - it oozes melodrama and tries to be steamy, but is mostly pathetic.

Erotic yet lyrical, graphic yet subtle, edgy yet uplifting, disturbing yet reassuring.

One of those tedious movies that thinks the midlife crisis of a dull guy is more interesting than it really is.

This is a very watchable movie, but in the end it's like realizing you've spent a couple of hours in the company of an outwardly civilized jerk.

A perversely compelling collection of ghastly ideas...
Peter Sobczynski

There's plenty of style, plenty of ideas, epic delusions of importance, and zero substance.

This disrespect-filled movie isn't worthy of our respect.
