Dragged Across Concrete

Critics Consensus

As grim and grinding as its title, Dragged Across Concrete opts for slow-burning drama instead of high-speed thrills -- and has just the right cast to make it work.

Critic Reviews for Dragged Across Concrete

All Critics (102) | Top Critics (19)

  • Unrelenting, glib and actually quite intelligent beneath the guts and gore.

  • This is a long film, but there is something so horribly compelling about its unhurried slouch towards the precipice.

    Apr 17, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • You never get the sense that Zahler's endorsing his ugly characters' brutal behavior so much as acknowledging that it exists and is worth looking at even if you have to avert your gaze.

    Mar 23, 2019 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • Dragged Across Concrete is an admittedly distinctive but ultimately mediocre movie that provides far more empty calories of exploitation than genuine food for thought.

    Mar 22, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • For all the absurdist-tragic trappings... this is still your basic boneheaded, right-wing action movie - skewed so that its heroes' moral relativism is meant to be a sign of their manly integrity.

    Mar 22, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Zahler's filmmaking feels like the cinematic equivalent of "I'm not racist - my black friend says so," filling in supporting roles with black and Latino actors who are either reduced to stereotypes or just plain mistreated. Sometimes both.
