Rupture Reviews

October 9, 2019
Rupture is a rather disappointing return for the idiosyncratic director, and would have benefitted greatly with some more tightly honed characterization and less aimless wandering through a retrofitted office building.
April 9, 2019
Using played-out torture porn tropes, this sci-fi horror film feels like a Syfy channel pilot released in the early aughts that never made it to series.
August 30, 2018
A strange and intriguing premise, Rupture gets a little lost in the middle and struggles to tie events up.
August 6, 2018
All this to say, my final takeaway is that, although Steven Shainberg's past work has been good, "Rupture" will likely not be added to that list.
July 14, 2018
An inane and unpleasant trashy B-movie sci-fi abduction-torture thriller.
May 2, 2017
Rupture is the kind of ill-conceived film that gives Michael Chiklis the campy role while keeping Peter Stormare on background duty.
April 30, 2017
To get it as wrong as Rupture takes quite some skill.
April 28, 2017
It's been 15 years since Shainberg's wonderful "Secretary" and 11 since his lesser, yet still interesting "Fur," but this film replaces his facility with gentle, peculiar inquisitions into fetishism with something much more generic.
April 28, 2017
It's not involving; it's not scary; it's just kind of miserable.
April 28, 2017
Rupture falls into the very worst category a fim out of the horror genre can be found it: boring. It's wasted potential with a hint of creative bankruptcy, a sour martini that's flatter than week-old beer.
April 28, 2017
... more pretentious than suspenseful, filled with derivative contrivances that compromise much of the intrigue and originality in the unsettling concept.
April 28, 2017
Given an entire facility in a secluded location, Shainberg and Nelson don't come up with that many interesting things to do there.
April 27, 2017
What we get, essentially, is a plot that exists to prevent itself from actually telling a story.
April 27, 2017
Dreary, derivative and flat-out dopey, this dragged-out torture tale will disappoint even those whose hearts race whenever they see a female character strapped to a bed.
April 27, 2017
Not at all satisfying, and as the feature begins to unravel while pursuing impossible visual and storytelling goals, one begins to wonder if the basic atmosphere of suffering isn't feeding Shainberg's personal appetites.
April 27, 2017
Noomi Rapace delivers a solid performance in this allegorical, torture-heavy horror movie.
April 27, 2017
Everything I liked about Rupture is half-cooked and rushed to conclusion.
April 26, 2017
Redundant, slim storyline.
April 26, 2017
A diluted interpretation of Aughts torture-porn with a film-student appreciation for Gaspar No's color palette, Rupture is a sci-fi abduction thriller that leaves little to be thrilled about.
April 26, 2017
It attempts to dress up torture-porn tropes with a late-inning switch to science fiction that spectacularly backfires.
