A visual treat filled out by consistently stellar work from Robert Pattinson, Good Time is a singularly distinctive crime drama offering far more than the usual genre thrills.

  • Like the revisionist westerns of the 1970s, it takes the conflicted heroes of gangster films and shows them in a different, less flattering light.

  • A fun, fiery, fatigue-defying ride.

    October 15, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Pattinson once again proves his abilities to disappear into a fully fleshed out characterization, here as a selfish yet sympathetic deadbeat.

  • For the most part, you'll either be rolling your eyes or laughing uproariously. Either way, the final scene, which continues as the credits roll, is so unexpectedly gracious and tender that don't be the least bit surprised if a couple of tears spill.

  • The very definition of a bumpy ride. Good Time is a fictional yet powerful tale of the strange limits of forgiveness. Pattinson at its best. [Full review in Spanish].

Audience Reviews for Good Time

  • Feb 25, 2018
    Pattinson has crafted quite a career after starring in the terrible Twilight films and Good Time is another step in the right direction. Aligning himself with Safdie Brothers has proven to be a recipe made in heaven, the indie film is one of the best films of 2017 and extremely unpredictable. The storyline spirals out of control as Pattinson attempts to save his brother from prison and we move from one uncomfortable moment to the next. The film has this atmosphere surrounding it that keeps you glued to the screen, you want the characters to succeed but with each escalating beat, you just know this won't end well. This is a great film and showcases some up and coming filmmaking talent. I had heard great things and it didn't disappoint. Great character development and strong filmmaking. 24/02/2017.

    Robert Pattinson gives a fantastic performance in Good Time as Constantine Nikas, a young thief and urban outlaw who embarks on a downward spiral in his efforts to save his mentally challenged brother from incarceration. it's a mad frenzy of a film and definitely quite experimental in its approach to a crime thriller. Unlike anything I've really seen before, the wildly talented Safdie brothers have created a great film here. One of the brothers, Benny Safdie also gives an amazing performance as Pattinson's brother and definitely deserves recognition for this.

    Never before has somebody drinking a bottle of Sprite made me wince in sympathetic pain and terror.

    An unrelenting and bleak thriller. This is career best work from Pattinson.
