Critic Reviews for Muscle

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (10)

  • Muscle takes the trappings of a macho crime flick and informs them with sensitivity and smarts, perfectly played by Cavan Clerkin and Craig Fairbrass. It packs all the punch and power of a whey protein shake.

    December 9, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This is Johnson's first film without his cousin and collaborator Peter Ferdinando in the starring role, but Muscle's two leads prove every bit as tuned into his uniquely bleak vision of male interaction.

    December 4, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The B-list hard case and straight-to-video action star Craig Fairbrass (see the Rise of the Foot Soldier franchise) is utterly reinvented in this bleakly compelling drama about toxic masculinity run rampant.

    December 4, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Fruitfully blending thriller, comedy and horror elements, Muscle is essentially a two-hander set in a claustrophobic, ultra-masculine world.

    December 25, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Striking monochrome cinematography lends a silvery edge to this low-budget British drama. So while the movie has the usual soapy crime-thriller tone, its ambitious imagery encourages the audience to look deeper.

    December 11, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A fraught, honest, and self-scrutinising working-out (quite literally in this case) of the ambivalence that many men have towards their own sense of manhood, agency, and self-worth.
