It's difficult to connect with any of the characters and feel any sympathy for them.

Earthquake Bird is definitely a cut above Netflix's usual fare. On a surface level the film doesn't have that weird plastic sheen Netflix releases always seem to be cheapened by.
December 31, 2019
Earthquake Bird meanders through its plot points in a narrative that feels lost in translation.
December 6, 2019
It's as if they built a portrait of a fascinating female killer and then chickened out, settling into the Lifetime "men are terrifying" model instead of exploring something more dynamic.
December 4, 2019
An underwhelming, melodramatic story that culminates in a shaky ending dooms Earthquake Bird.
December 2, 2019
Earthquake Bird is ultimately more of a puzzle than a thrill, leaving viewers to wonder what happened to Lily and what led to her disappearance.
December 2, 2019
A mousy Alicia Vikander casts a convincing spell...and Westmoreland finds plenty of additional intrigue in this late 1980s Japanese setting...

Earthquake Bird is somewhat laborious in making its points, but it's a film whose unsettling qualities will grow on you with time.
November 23, 2019
It's unfortunate that Earthquake Bird falls apart in the way that it does, as a film with this much of a unique premise and setting and populated with talented actors had such potential.
November 21, 2019
There's a choppiness and impatience to the storytelling, with crucial scenes getting dispatched in a cursory fashion.
November 21, 2019
Absorbing but slow tale has nudity, language, violence.
November 21, 2019
If the frames are converted into data for a seismograph to read, be ready to see mainly flat lines.
November 20, 2019
Earthquake Bird is an enjoyable neo-noir film, with enough twists and turns to leave you thinking long after the ending.
November 19, 2019
A middling whodunit, it's still a fine vehicle for Vikander, an actress of quiet reserve and inner fury.
November 19, 2019
A slow, uneventful and ultimately predictable thriller that is definitely far from groundbreaking.
November 18, 2019
The number of themes present in the film might work in literary form, but as a film, Earthquake Bird feels rushed and incomplete.
November 18, 2019
Unfortunately, a turn that renders it more engaging than the stale psychological thriller it is for most of its running time never emerges, wasting good performances from Alicia Vikander and Riley Keough along the way.
November 16, 2019
When Keough is not onscreen, the film turns from pulse-racing to deadly dull.
November 15, 2019
Earthquake Bird is about two-thirds of a good movie, and Vikander clearly outshines the material. Just gauge your expectations accordingly.
November 15, 2019
Without the depth and detail of Jones' prose too much of the movie is lost in the same in-between that Lucy is trying to chart for herself.
