[Y]et as is, the film is not memorable or meaningful.

[Greta] wastes its resources and becomes a disappointment. [Full Review in Spanish]

As a director, Neil Jordan fails to structure the film's gradual suspense. [Full review in Spanish]
July 21, 2019
Greta is a psychological thriller that had potential but instead of taking a deep dive it stays in the shallow end leaving viewers wanting more.
July 10, 2019
This is good set-up for a thriller with some great performances, but the writing and direction don't do it justice.

Were the entirety of Greta infused with the maniacal mischievousness of its final third, it'd be the best kind of schlocky stalker silliness. Instead, wait until you can stream it, start it about an hour in and then maybe call your mom after.

Despite counting with a great cast led by Isabelle Huppert, Greta is a fraudulent thriller that shows its cards too soon. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 14, 2019
Over-the-top, but also earnest in a berserk way. It's too flat and perfunctory, and it should've been much better than it was.
May 26, 2019
Greta falls apart because of the absolute lack of internal logic within each of the situations. [Full Review in Spanish]
May 21, 2019
A basic B-movie dressed up to look like something more meaningful.
May 15, 2019
This is a lot of A-list acting power to throw into a B-movie, one that throws away its sheen of mystery by the mid-point to become a run-of-the-mill work of horror.
April 23, 2019
It is a successful genre exercise, but falls short as a whole film.
April 23, 2019
Greta is too head-smackingly stupid to give the film a pass, even on those terms.
April 22, 2019
The movie trades heavily on the two lead performances and hopes the audience will forgive the narrative wobbles. In the end, however, the story outcome is simply unbelievable.
April 19, 2019
Complete nonsense, and not in a good way, with an enraging side dish of male undercutting of women's friendships. For a movie to be both this ludicrous and this predictable is quite an achievement.
April 19, 2019
For every scene in which we surrender to our early 90's "Single White Female" or "Deceived" deification, there are a dozen tediums and plot-hole implausibilities waiting to smack you round the chops.
April 19, 2019
It's all going to get wildly overwrought, and very silly indeed, before you get to go home.
April 17, 2019
Huppert lurks and looms, clearly having a blast. At least someone is.
April 12, 2019
The oodles of class Huppert brings to proceedings are hobbled by a script that crunches through the gears rather too predictably once the big 'ah-ha!' twist is out the way early on.
March 16, 2019
Greta ultimately marches into an underwhelming third act that's rife with illogical and flat-out ludicrous elements...
