Critic Reviews for Jackals
"Jackals" is a bit of style, almost no substance, and so scanty on the scares it's not worth the price of admission.
The film's ultimate nihilism makes the whole exercise seem like an annoyingly pointless waste of time-even for a movie that's barely 80 minutes long.
Its run-of-the-mill standoff may appease some hardcore horror buffs, but it offers nothing to the rest of us and will likely be forgotten before the blood on the ground dries.
The movie does what it sets out to do: stranding the viewer in a dark place, surrounded by remorseless predators. It's an old recipe that can still please a crowd.
The idea -- is an interesting one, and adds a new spin on the home invasion film, it just fails to really land what it wants to achieve.
Audience Reviews for Jackals
Visually striking and moderately original, but full of stupid characters making decisions the audience cannot appreciate. An enjoyable enough movie for fans of the horror that just scrapes by with a passing grade for me.
