Critic Reviews for Shout at the Devil

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

Shout at the Devil is a great adventure with lots of explosions and intrigue and hints of war. However, the way colonialism and other sensitive issues are handled shows that there is a big difference between even the attitudes of 1976 and the present.

PopMatters

Despite its interesting premise, the movie -- a graceless and lurching mix of brutal drama (dead babies!), lowbrow humor (Marvin drunk again!) and general daftness (Moore in blackface!) -- runs out of steam long before its bruising 150 minutes are up.
