Critic Reviews for The Lesser Evil
The overwrought performances of the adult actors and the overall staginess of their section keeps this thriller from truly thrilling.

Audience Reviews for The Lesser Evil
A very well written story and great acting really threw me off when I caught this on IFC. Some familiar faces intertwined with a great drama make this worth watching.
A group of 4 youths mistakingly commit a murder, then 22 years later (and now grown up) all come together in a remote wooden cabin to plot their way of getting out of it. Ultimately, their get-together turns into a deadly game of chess. Well-written and engaging!
Apparently not a well-known movie. I happened upon this little gem on IFC the other day. It's a played out story of friends reuniting years later after a tragedy in their early days, except this was really well-done and interesting with a twist. The flashback story unfolds dramatically throughout the movie, as the tension and story build in current time. The twist was unpredictable, at least to me, and the back/forth in time was done without feeling chaotic and leading to confusion. Great acting by both sets of actors playing the younger and older roles provide the icing on the cake.
