Critic Reviews for Killing for Love (Das Versprechen)

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (9)

  • A gripping murder mystery about the fated coupling of a pair of calculating romantics too smart for their own good, and the limits of the American justice system.

    December 14, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Featuring compelling real-life figures who practically invite casting guesses for the inevitable Hollywood dramatization, Killing for Love should easily satisfy viewers who can't get enough of this stuff.

    December 14, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Probably dives into the weeds too quickly and could have used a tighter edit. Still, drawing on a wealth of courtroom video, the film lays out a persuasive argument for reasonable doubt.

    December 14, 2017 | Full Review…
  • While Killing for Love ends up being a call for justice, it is framed as a psychological thriller and a court drama, an exploration of what happened within the young couple and the Haysom family.

    August 26, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • You don't so much watch Killing For Love as you completely absorb it.

    July 10, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Steinberger and Vetter create a haunting atmosphere of mania and madness, as when they transition to photos of Derek and Nancy during Elizabeth's cold, eerie testimony.
