Dirty, angry, and it feels like it wants to pick a fight with you.

Everything goes on way, way too long and so many of the characters are horrible.

You're playing with exploitation. And that will prevent many people - this reviewer included - from finding any entertainment or escapism here.

Officer Ridgeman is a man left behind by his inability to adapt to the present, and the jury's out on whether the same thing will happen to Zahler.

A pornographic celebration of immorality.

Mel Gibson stars as an ageing police detective in sudden need of money but it's only co-star Vince Vaughn who emerges with his reputation halfway intact.

I'll pass.

It's uncompromising and unapologetically unpleasant, but it's also mediocre, boring and tries far too hard to be controversial.

All too often it feels like a writer-director indulging himself rather than his audience.

It's a very violent, very male film, it's sadistic, exploitative, the dialogue is often clunky, the characters aren't particularly sympathetic and an awful lot of screen time is given to men just sitting in cars, on a stakeout, driving or tailing

The impression is that everything else in this headache of a film is only there to let Mel Gibson say ugly things on screen and thus, as they say, trigger the libs - a feeble use of Zahler's talent.

Similarly, the often gripping, but frustrating, Dragged Across Concrete fails to completely get under your skin because it's content with poking you in the eye.

Dragged Across Concrete is a tremendous misfire that even the most vehement fans of cop thrillers should have trouble to connect.

Damsels in distress, and women that don't have any agency or character, being thrown into peril so men can save them from the evil...

For a movie pitched as the breakout for the most dangerous filmmaker on the indie scene, it's kind of a letdown to see Zahler seemingly sand off his own edges and hand in something more like a long, talky, more handsome episode of 'Chicago P.D.'

Dragged Across Concrete is exciting, provocative, and more than a little phony.
March 25, 2019
Surprisingly not as fun as [filmmaker S. Craig Zahler's] prior contributions to the big screen.
March 22, 2019
Dragged Across Concrete is an admittedly distinctive but ultimately mediocre movie that provides far more empty calories of exploitation than genuine food for thought.
March 22, 2019
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.
March 22, 2019
Director and screenwriter S. Craig Zahler's third film is sordid and passive, resulting in scenes that end up disrespecting the audience's intelligence. [Full review in Spanish]
