Lily Collins and especially Simon Pegg sell the sometimes preposterous nature of this flick and make it work, more often than not.
May 22, 2020
By the time Inheritance's final stretch reaches the nuttier levels it needed... any goodwill generated by its grabby premise and Pegg's charisma has been depleted.

A script that didn't think past the trailer.
May 22, 2020
If you make it to the last act, the plot finally leads to a climax of sorts. But this patently absurd plot plays slow and dull. Bury this one.

Inheritance ... uses its elaborate plotting as a way to evade ... difficult questions about the protagonist.
May 21, 2020
A skeletons-in-the-closet dynastic thriller in which the major skeleton literally still has meat on its bones, Vaughn Stein's sophomore feature is equal parts pretension and absurdity.
May 21, 2020
A blithering botch job of a thriller that begs the question: "Come on, are you effing kidding me?" If this is an inheritance, leave us out of the will, please.

"Succession" ("Parasite" x "I Know What You Did Last Summer"/"Shallow Grave") = "Inheritance."
May 21, 2020
Arguably edging into so-bad-it's-good territory, Inheritance is really as bland and derivative as its title suggests.
May 21, 2020
Dismal "Inheritance" no gift.
May 21, 2020
Roughly 20 minutes into Inheritance, I was hooked... Alas, Inheritance isn't 20 minutes long.
May 21, 2020
Inheritance suffers from a poorly developed script and too many clichés, with a cast that, try as they might, cannot elevate the lacklustre material.
May 21, 2020
This movie aspires to generate the kind of rich-people-you-love-to-hate juice of cable TV series such as "Billions" and "Succession." Ultimately, "Inheritance" doesn't even get to the level of "Dynasty."
May 21, 2020
This overlong tale spends most of its nearly two hours as a somewhat draggy, talky mystery before finally deciding to be a thriller, with credibility lacking throughout.
May 21, 2020
Inheritance contains the kernel of an involving sins-of-the-father saga, its potential repeatedly obscured or undermined by the belabored, flat proceedings.
May 21, 2020
"Inheritance" doesn't go deep enough with unfolding mental illness and familial shame, aiming to be a fright machine that Stein has no idea how to work without getting ridiculous.
May 20, 2020
You can't ask for much in a picture on this scale as the narrative devices and cliche elements have been dissected on screen countless times, but it proves that one decently convincing performance can be the switch that lifts the movie off the ground.
May 20, 2020
From its thoroughly uninspired poster design to its predictable and formulaic plot, Stein's thriller occasionally entertains but contains few shining or memorable moments.
May 20, 2020
This gonzo thriller is a mess, but you can't look away thanks to two committed performances.
May 20, 2020
Inheritance is the kind of twisty thriller that forces the viewer to squint to see have a good time with it.
