Critic Reviews for Lies We Tell

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5)

From the storyline to the score to the climactic reaction shots to the purposely head-scratching ending, Lies We Tell is crammed, histrionic, and way too damn much.

February 4, 2018 | Full Review…

[A] glum, poorly organized crime drama.

February 2, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Something's got to give, and unfortunately it's narrative coherence and character consistency, rather than any of the superfluous subplots, that get the chop.

February 2, 2018 | Full Review…

Truth be told, "Lies We Tell" is a pretentious and muddled dud of a melodrama.

February 1, 2018 | Full Review…

Weak script and amateurish direction sink this dead-on-arrival debut.

January 30, 2018 | Full Review…

A fairly standard British thriller, this is a slickly made but murky, mopey movie with an unfocussed plot that gets lost in the manipulative editing
