Critic Reviews for Raw Deal: A Question of Consent

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Unfortunately, this film makes the case seem even scuzzier than it already is with its overheated, incident-and-shot repeating style and ludicrous, faux-ominous music score that would be right at home on Inside Edition.

Although this may be no one's idea of a pretty story, Corben manages to make it utterly absorbing.

This is a film that MUST be seen by men and women, together, if not to expose this amazing story to the world, then just to see how split down the middle men vs. women are in regards to the outcome.

Film Threat

A strong, effective discussion of the issues at hand, and a powerful reminder that there are at least two sides to every story.

We leave the cinema thinking 'what morons' instead of having our minds opened -- and that amounts to a fail.

This is a difficult film to watch and near impossible to rate.
