Critics Consensus

Icily inhospitable to compelling performances or a sensible narrative, Siberia offers audiences a harsh and seemingly interminable exile from entertainment.

It's a film with ambitions to do something more than the video-game shootouts of John Wick. But what that is, I don't think the film-makers ever discussed in detail...

A fatalistic romance framed by a pointedly obscure heist plot that struggles to gain momentum before finally sputtering out.

The plot swerves around just enough to make you think something more complex is going on. Ultimately, it really isn't...

[Siberia] is a dull and deeply compromised movie that would rather be a mediocre crime saga than a nuanced character study, but can't quite bring itself to commit to that choice.

It's called Siberia, and it takes place in Siberia, but you get no sense of what Siberia is like.

Jul 13, 2018 | Rating: 3.8/10 | Full Review…

Formless and meandering, Siberia is a film without much purpose or promise.

Audience Reviews for Siberia


A little bit of a different kind of a movie, Siberia does not seem quite sure what sort of viewing experience it wants to be, but it's okay. The leads are quite good and it managed to keep me more or less engaged from start to finish (and especially for that finish).

Keanu Reeves is beginning to head into Bruce Willis territory and it's a massive shame. Outside of John Wick he has started to star in these poorly marketed and produced films that shouldn't attract such a gifted acting presence. The film is very slow but ramps up in the final third to have some recommendation for viewing. I'm a little lost why this attracted a gifted director and Reeves, surely someone e.g. manager to identify this wasn't a good film for their client. I liked the film but clearly didn't love the film, there is enough here to watch but it's ultimately flawed. The film has that John Wick vibe which might have duped audiences into viewing this film, typical marketing ploy. The film could have been better, that is not sugar coating it. The storyline had the opportunity to sharpen the narrative and allow the film to add further depth, but as it stands the film is a one watch and forget sadly. 05/08/2018.
