Critic Reviews for Lowlife

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (32) | Rotten (3)

  • [Ryan] Prows also has a more deft and adroit handling of race relations in modern America. While Tarantino has always tackled race head-on, if often with too blunt a tool, Lowlife manages to feed in more subtlety.

    April 19, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The climax is suitably violent, and I honestly love the fact that Prows keeps the blood and gore to a minimum.

    April 18, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A shallow exercise in nastiness, contriving different ways that people can be cruel to each other.

    April 6, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The tangled plot is ultimately too simple, and the film's sociopolitical commentary too paltry. But "Lowlife" does have a refreshingly varied and up-to-date cast of characters. With seedy B-movies, just a little bit of ambition elevates the generic.

    April 5, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Nicely calibrates a twisty course between straight crime melodrama and black comedy, one that has cult-following potential among adventurous genre fans.

    April 3, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Being a debut feature, the film at times struggles to stay on track tonally-a graphic autopsy scene at the beginning seems to portend a much different kind of story-but once it rights itself, it's off like a bullet from the chamber of a gun.

  • Lowlife is there to remind Hollywood that there are plenty good, entertaining films left to be made before more remakes should be pumped out. It's an original story with a familiar style that works great.

    April 12, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The story, slight as it is, hooks you in from the outset and doesn't let go as it hops all over L.A's seediest spots, rubbing our noses in the dirt.
