Critic Reviews for Regeneration

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Revelling in the cinema's power to set a vast scene in a single glance, Walsh gives the spare, schematic story a novelistic amplitude.

[Regeneration is] distinguished by a remarkable approach to physical casting, a robust treatment of violent action, and a sheer narrative pace to shame contemporary ponderousness.
