Critic Reviews for Most Wanted

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (27) | Rotten (11)

  • Using blanched lighting setups and grainy effects, the film evokes those gritty 1970s true-crime films such as Midnight Express and The French Connection, and that's always a good thing.

    October 28, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Most Wanted runs a little long and a little ragged, but it's still a solid adaptation of a mind-boggling, true-life story.

    July 27, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • [Hartnett's] unconvincing performance amplifies many of the movie's worst tendencies.

    July 26, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Quick and pretty constant cutting between different threads of this story keep Most Wanted from feeling as long as it actually is, but it also keeps us from committing fully to any one story, all of which feel slightly underwritten.

  • Does its... job with proficient integrity, but as much inventiveness as you'd guess from that all-purpose placeholder of a title.

  • The result is a three-pronged narrative that inventively plays with structure and time, allowing the natural dramatic tension of Malarek's international chase to nicely dovetail with Léger's ugly experiences in the criminal justice system.

  • A low-key thriller, short on action but long on intrigue.

    January 29, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Olivier has said that if not for Victor Malarek, he may never have returned to Canada or be able to tell his side of the story. Unfortunately, none of these sentiments shine through in its visual representation.
