Journeyman

Critics Consensus

Journeyman finds writer-director-star Paddy Considine gutting out a boxing drama whose familiar narrative contours are countered by an array of powerful performances.

Critic Reviews for Journeyman

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (32) | Rotten (7)

  • The film is a little self-serious, and the story's recovery arc wraps up too tidily, but as a character study - and showcase for Considine and Whittaker's considerable gifts as actors - it's surprisingly interesting and angular.

  • A victory on points, if not quite a knockout blow.

  • Mostly, however, this is delicate drama, lovingly executed.

  • Young men and women are desperate to box and Considine makes sense of their desperation.

    March 29, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Considine resists the usual narrative urges to bring down any kind of judgement or redemption, or to "make sense" of Matty's story beyond the sense he himself can make of it.

    March 29, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Journeyman is a well-crafted and intelligent drama. For all its clever footwork, though, it stumbles when it tries to find a rousing and upbeat ending from subject matter that is innately so grim.
