Critic Reviews for River Runs Red

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (7)

  • It takes a vitally serious subject and makes such a relentlessly dumb hash of it.

    November 9, 2018 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • The entertainment value's low in this pointed crime thriller, which saves its action sequences until right before the closing credits.

    November 8, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The film's third act, featuring standard-issue gunfights and car chases, is too poorly staged to be remotely exciting.

    November 8, 2018 | Full Review…
  • River Runs Red is a film that is about a very serious issue but tends to sometimes take a campy approach to it. I could have done without a few of the scenes, but it was a pretty good story with a cast that makes the film work.

    November 19, 2018 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • While it'll likely be overshadowed by The Hate U Give, River Runs Red is a hugely important film. The themes it explores, and the way it imparts them, make it a vital (albeit austere) piece of social commentary.

    November 11, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Bloody violence, strong language in weak revenge thriller.

    November 9, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
