Critic Reviews for Hate Crime

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (17)

  • First-time director Stovall renders all with the kitchen-lit, squarely composed aesthetic of timid prime-time TV, and his moral schema is no less ordinary.

    August 18, 2006 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The portrait of the Boyds is painted by Tommy Stovall, the film's writer and director, with such broad and venomous strokes that if the gay characters had been portrayed in the same way, the film would rightly be seen as bigoted.

    May 12, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • ... a flawed film that frequently tries to rise above standard TV dramas of the week.

    April 27, 2006 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • A well-meaning but hopelessly stilted melodrama, Hate Crime sacrifices good intentions with its mediocrity of execution.

    March 30, 2006
  • What is not entirely clear is what Hate Crime adds to the equation that hasn't been done before.

    March 16, 2006
  • On the surface, Hate Crime may seem like a movie about violence rooted in religious bigotry, but underneath it's a poorly disguised argument for vigilantism.

Audience Reviews for Hate Crime

  • Oct 20, 2016
    One of the most hyped film was it had totally unconvincing story and one of the worst acting I've seen, if not for Brian J. Smith, I wouldn't have watched this.

    The movie tries to make a point and send out a message. While the intentions might have been good, what I got to see in the form of a thriller wasn't quite so. Its predictability and preachy parts didn't bother me as much as its story so filled with loopholes. And if the director has the same excuse that the Sergeant makes towards the end, I'd have a hard time pardoning him. Many of the significant twists and turns simply don't add up to. I'd have readily ignored one or two, but here we've got enough at hand to make the movie lame. Tolerable, but not recommended from my end.
