Movie Info

Bruce Willis (DIE HARD franchise) and Megan Fox (TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN) lead a powerful cast including Emile Hirsch (ONCE UPON A TIME...IN HOLLYWOOD), Lukas Haas (INCEPTION), and Colson Baker (BIRD BOX) in this gritty and intense crime-thriller. While in Florida on another case, FBI agents Helter (Willis) and Lombardo (Fox) cross paths with state cop Crawford (Hirsch), who's investigating a string of female murders that appear to be related. Lombardo and Crawford team up for an undercover sting, but it goes horribly wrong, plunging Lombardo into grave danger and pitting Crawford against a serial killer in a twisted game of cat and mouse.

Critic Reviews for Midnight in the Switchgrass

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (26)

  • It's a functional piece of exploitation - an efficient little crime-porn snuff-thriller potboiler. It's like a fast-food meal that makes you think, "Okay, that wasn't good for me, but I got what I paid for."

  • Midnight in the Switchgrass is the type of crime thriller that's so full of cliches that it becomes one big cliche itself.

    July 23, 2021 | Rating: .5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's worth a watch if you like serial killer thrillers but don't expect to see anything revolutionary going on.

    July 22, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The atmosphere is thoroughly sleazy without being distinctive, and everything about the movie - the emotionless line readings, the half-baked back stories - exudes a terse functionality.

  • Randall Emmett's directorial debut is virtually indistinguishable from the scores of cheap VOD action thrillers that he's produced to date.

    July 21, 2021 | Rating: 0/4 | Full Review…
  • The movie, which bills itself as a crime-thriller-mystery, doesn't come close to fulfilling even the lowest of expectations; it neither takes it characters seriously nor commits to its superficial attempt at topicality.

  • A cover of Dire Straits' 'Brothers In Arms' bookends the film as if they were singing about Bruce Willis slipping away on the battlefield. But he is not there for either performance and barely shows up in-between either, so best to just walk away.

  • The scenes between Kelly and Fox are some of the more intriguing in an otherwise subpar spin...
