Critic Reviews for Rage

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

This may be the first film ever made about the seething rage of the disenfranchised that succeeds in lulling you to sleep.

Had the curtain come down 10 minutes sooner, it would have done so with a satisfying thump instead of a soggy swish.

The structuring allegory's invocation of familial bonds and immigrant burdens grows stilted: It doesn't collapse this delicate film, but it can't quite hold it up, either.

This unnecessarily grim study of immigrants suffers from a deadly pace and an even more deadly creeping pretentiousness.

If you haven't got anything new to say, at least find an interesting way to say it.

Audience Reviews for Rage


An interesting, reasonably credible, well filmed sequence of events occasionally hinting at depths unplumbed.

weird & puzzling a cross between a stalker movie and say "Pacific Heights" didn't really care for this the boyfriend was a psychopath.

Stellar gothic thriller from Spain about two Colombian immigrants who fall in love, only to find themselves torn apart by a ghastly rage-induced crime of passion is a ghost story without ghosts. Great atmosphere and haunting execution take an unlikely scenario and make it work, although the ending is a bit of a letdown.
