Critic Consensus: 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.

All Critics (196) | Top Critics (37)

This isn't conventional Hollywood-horror/thriller "suspense" but something more primal.

August 27, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Maybe it's not [the directors'] fault that this dark joyride offers neither an ordered route nor a satisfying destination.

August 25, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Pattinson's performance is one of the year's finest and a revelation for anyone who has wanted to pigeonhole him as an actor.

August 25, 2017 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

This film may not exactly be a "Good Time," but it's an interesting one.

August 24, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

You might hate this movie, but with a passion that almost proves its power. Anyway, when was the last time a film grabbed you by the lapels and refused to let go?

Pattinson is what helps us keep pace. He completely inhabits Connie with his jittery, twitchy efforts - he can't stand still, so neither can we.

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.

Robert Pattinson keeps proving that he can be an amazing actor when not playing a ridiculous vampire, delivering a magnetic performance in this frenetic, stylish and super tense movie bathed in neon lights but which only falters a bit in the end by wanting to have a "message."
