"Harpoon" offers stylish compositions, amusing running gags and sharp, snappy dialogue. It's a sparse, nasty little thriller.

[T]hose who can stomach the blood-letting are likely to cheer this inventive foray into high-stakes, high-jinks on the high seas: not least because of its determination to hold its nerve right up until the moment the closing credits roll.

This film is just in time for those that want to be on a rollercoaster that scares you, but it might also leave you feeling just a little gun shy.

Harpoon is dark, mean-spirited stuff but no one's getting punished for the sake of it, and there are moments of sublime silliness that keep it nimble and entertaining. Jump on board.

A fun and savage thriller. [Full Review in Spanish]

The film is strikingly shot, writer-director Rob Grant layers in strong undercurrents that keep the story staggeringly tense, and the three lead actors are terrific.

This flaccid picture lacks the muscle needed to succeed as a horror or a comedy.

The greatest strength of the script is how the emotional torture and, well, torture torture motivate each other, so each moment of escalation is backed by a new revelation or secret.

Delivers the thrills and laughs.

Grant adds lots of fisticuffs and gore to the proceedings, but it's Gelman's voice that answer's the narrative's numerous SOS calls.
October 11, 2019
Excellent by almost any metric but especially as a clever indie horror, Harpoon lives up to its festival-fueled hyped, and should be seen.

Behind Harpoon's magnificent surface heartlessness there is much to chew on.
October 10, 2019
Rob Grant's genre-stretching film is both a barbed comedy of manners and a survival picture.
October 9, 2019
Harpoon manages to remain tense and highly watchable throughout and is an altogether smarter and more accomplished film than your standard modern B-movie offering.
October 9, 2019
Harpoon never gets deep enough to attain full authenticity, but it's still a fittingly tense and amusingly deranged romp, poking fun at how incredibly low these people are drowning into moral abyss.

It's brilliantly conceived, frequently shocking, and boasts three equally strong performances that make us want to spend more, rather than less, time stranded at sea with these three brats.

I was impressed by [director] Rob Grant's ability to accomplish a lot with a little and in a very confined space.
October 7, 2019
The energetic mix of mayhem and snark will appeal to those who like their comedy horrific and their horror comedic.
October 4, 2019
A nasty look at pride, betrayal and misnamed nautical gear on the open sea.
October 3, 2019
Some of the stylistic fillips feel excessive, and at the end of the day, this is just a tawdry, gory B-picture, with little to say about human behavior. But it's often funny and generally suspenseful - a fine afternoon on the water, all things considered.
