Critic Reviews for Hangman

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (21)

  • A cheapo Seven knock-off that one would be tempted to suggest is beneath the talents of everyone involved, but they knew what they were getting into when they read it.

  • In its own cheesy and entertaining way, Hangman kept me guessing throughout.

    Dec 21, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • With a dirge-like pace that provides ample opportunity to figure it all out well ahead of the protagonists, you keep wishing somebody would buy a vowel to hurry things along.

  • This formulaic thriller is m_di_c_e.

    Dec 21, 2017 | Full Review…
  • The most and least that can be said for "Hangman" is that it doesn't approach the mesmerizing ineptitude of "88 Minutes," another movie that pitted Al Pacino against a serial killer from about a decade ago.

    Dec 21, 2017 | Full Review…
  • You may not take a single frame of this movie seriously, especially whenever Pacino is shuffling around, waving a gun and talking like he's desperately in need of a mint julep.

Audience Reviews for Hangman

  • Oct 31, 2018
    Implausible and contrived. Recycles ideas from other similar movies without ever adding anything original to the mix.

    Tries to echo the crime thriller/mysteries in pursuit of a theatrical serial killer like Se7en, Zodiac or The Bone Collector. But it fails. It feels very much as if Hangman intended to take one direction, but ran out of time or was forced to go in a worse direction. It's not complete garbage, but it is bogged down by a very awkward bit of copaganda in the middle, among other problems.
