Critic Reviews for Poker Night

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

"Poker Night" brings to mind so many forgettable thrillers from the 1990s, films that aimed to impress stylistically but ultimately were met with indifference.

Flashbacks within flashbacks exhaust viewer patience in this snarky mix of crime, action and sadism.

Top Critic

Refusing to settle down to focus on its intriguing central story, filmmaker Greg Francis whirls around through a series of whizzy flashbacks that layer in all kinds of subtext and interest.

Solid cast tripped up by a too-simple but overly tricky story

Goes from comedy to horror to suspense. The visual story telling is tricky and the writing is even more so.

Dec 18, 2014 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

The majority of it runs at the speed of the last five minutes of a Christopher Nolan film, when entire story beats are compressed into a shot or a line.
