Hyena 2015

Hyena

Critics Consensus

Sinking in with as much baleful bite as its namesake, Hyena offers a dark, stylish, and impressively gritty addition to the British crime genre.

  • By the end, as the camera lingers on Peter Ferdinando's phlegmy, leaking face, Hyena has done something uncommon: It has frightened you.

  • Hyena's convoluted tale is given a fresh coat of grime by Johnson's direction, which favors handheld cinematography -- often tracking its protagonists from behind -- that gives the action a pseudo-vrit ruggedness.

    May 1, 2015 | Full Review…
  • I suspect that anyone who actually makes it to the bitter end will be enraged by what it does and does not contain.

    May 1, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "Hyena" feels like a throwback to the tough-as-nails British gangster flicks of the 1970s.

    April 30, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The kind of gory British policier from which you come away with the queasy feeling that the world is essentially a butcher shop ruled by greed, murder, cruelty and lust.

    April 30, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Johnson aspires to make Hyena into the stuff of classical tragedy, yet he telegraphs Michael's inward transformation way too soon.

Audience Reviews for Hyena

  • May 07, 2015
    If you're looking for a gritty british drama, like only the british can do, with a sordid storyline, no happy moments and plenty of shocking moments backed by fantastic performances, look no further. Despite the ballsy ending (come on, you know how it was really gonna end), sometimes the script is too obtuse and clunky to truly engage us. Still, Hyena is a worthy follow-up to Johnson's equally great Tony, sans the dark humor or course.
