Lucky Bastard

Critics Consensus

Lucky Bastard takes its lurid premise in some interesting directions -- albeit perhaps not quite as interesting as the story seems to think.

Critic Reviews for Lucky Bastard

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (12)

  • [Nathan], who co-wrote the clever, resourceful and at times darkly wry script with Lukas Kendall, effectively combines the eclectic footage (kudos to editor Tony Randel) to form a kicky, highly involving narrative.

    March 6, 2014 | Full Review…
  • None of the murders is particularly well staged (the sound effects feel distinctly off), yielding little in the way of suspense.

    Variety
    Top Critic
  • Less exploitative and a bit smarter than its seedy adult-film setting would suggest.

    February 21, 2014 | Full Review…
  • A sorry-looking found-footage thriller as unconvincing as its characters' thrashing orgasms.

    February 13, 2014 | Full Review…
  • If nothing else (and that is pretty accurate), this found-footage horror film comprises the perfect storm of keywords to ensure moderate online success: porn, guns, boobs, simulated rape, antisocial psychopath.

    February 13, 2014 | Rating: 0.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The film is most successful when humanizing the people behind the objectification, with lives beyond the smut.
