Critic Reviews for Orthodox

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

  • Stephen Graham is ever reliable as Benjamin, a bare-knuckle boxer and family man who provides muscle and criminal favours for Shannon, an Irish consigliere to the local orthodox Jewish mafia.

  • It's absurd material, very obviously overstretched, beyond breaking point, from its origins as a short. But Graham is as watchable as always, even when working with this tattered script.

  • Stephen Graham and Michael Smiley are both strong presences in this gloomy, atmospheric drama.

  • Despite his best efforts, and never quite let off the leash, Graham cannot drag this drama up from off the canvas.

  • Only the arbitrary twists come as any real surprise, and even those are mostly geared towards the film's single-minded mission of assuring you that life is a meaningless nightmare of suffering, whichever god you happen to kneel before.

  • There is undoubtedly a lot to be admired about Orthodox, but you can't help but feel somewhat underwhelmed considering the potentially compelling premise, and the impressive cast assembled to present it.
