Critic Reviews for Pimp

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

"Pimp" is too one-note and grinds its way somewhat drearily to an inevitably bloody conclusion.

November 8, 2018 | Full Review…

The movie might leave you drained and disgusted, yet it also serves as a reminder that Palmer (whose last notable feature, "Akeelah and the Bee," was 12 years ago) is an unusually intense talent who deserves a much better vehicle than this one.

November 8, 2018 | Full Review…

The strongest element of all is Palmer's thoroughly gripping performance.

November 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Palmer's committed portrayal generates sympathy more than the lurid screenplay, which feels like an inauthentic glimpse into life on the streets.

November 30, 2018 | Full Review…

'Pimp' presents in an unfiltered way, a stirring look at the life of a female pimp, and the challenges she undergoes to get what she needs. It's a film that sticks with you.

November 17, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Lean, lurid and unsentimental exploitation thriller that works thanks to a mean makeover of former child star Keke Palmer.

November 6, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
