March 3, 2017
Franklin no alecciona, muestra, a modo de thriller, las terribles consecuencias de la incursión de la violencia en la diaria tranquilidad de un pueblo en el que nunca pasa nada.
May 6, 2013
Franklin's convincing portrait of life on both sides of the color line isn't quite like anything I've come across before, making One False Move one very assured directorial move. We need more filmmakers like him.

May 6, 2013
In this film ably directed by Carl Franklin, who has spent most of his adulthood as an actor, there are more than a few tense scenes.
May 6, 2013
For most of the way, One False Move is taut and sure-footed.

May 6, 2013
Skillfully performed and welcomely unpredictable, this low-budget crime film, made by actor turned director Carl Franklin, starts out as a herky-jerky exploitation piece, then turns into something better.
May 6, 2013
Everything about this movie -- the terse writing, the concise directing, the smart, unaffected acting -- is eminently satisfying.

May 6, 2013
Rookie director Carl Franklin shows an obvious gift for pace and storytelling -- uncertain, halting moments are rare. Almost every scene has rich and authentic feeling.

One False Move doesn't make a single false move its own self: It's as tough and gripping as they come.

May 6, 2013
The biggest difference between One False Move and most other action films is the sting in its violence. There is so little stylization here -- so little gimmickry -- that when someone is shot or knifed, you feel it.

May 6, 2013
It exerts an almost macabre fascination as we track the killers bloody trail across several states to their inevitable deaths.
May 6, 2013
Emotionally complex thriller with riveting performances.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
May 6, 2013
The story is punctuated by violence that's as pointless as it is nasty, though, showing an unfortunate immaturity in the filmmakers.
May 6, 2013
Mixing moments of genuine terror with offbeat comedy, writers Tom Epperson and Thornton have created a script that jumps along with the energy of In Cold Blood.

May 6, 2013
There's plenty to be impressed by while watching this 1992 noirish thriller, cowritten by Tom Epperson and directed by Carl Franklin, but not a great deal of aftertaste.
September 7, 2011
A sardonic and explosive crooks-on-the-lam saga in the tradition of Bonnie and Clyde.
