The usually dependable Rob Cohen directs from a ludicrous script.

It's amazing that so many viewers were still seated by the time the end credits began to roll.

Initially tolerable but increasingly stupid.

The movie's unintentionally played like a comedy all the way.

It is so unbelievably ludicrous that I couldn't help but think that it was intentional despite Rob Cohen's constant attempts to convince me otherwise.

[Cohen] has a knack for making the most ridiculous material suspenseful.

A dark, stupid tale.

The filmmakers would rather exploit and inflame a class war than deconstruct it.

Through pure mismanagement, The Skulls bungles a rich seam of material.
Brent Simon
Entertainment Today

With large amounts of alcohol and the right friends, it might be a Mystery Science Theater 3000-level hoot. Otherwise, The Skulls is a crime against humanity.

Empty-headed piffle.

In an otherwise boneheaded hour and a half of intrigue and silliness, The Skulls does offer one of the more memorable lines of dialogue in recent movies.
| Original Score: 2/4

I guess it wouldn't have been enough to just make an intelligent and gripping drama about Ivy League secret societies. No, we had to have a murder, coverup, good guys, bad guys, and so on.

If there was an Oscar for the Silliest Movie Category, then The Skulls might be in with a good chance of winning.

Gleefully plunges through the silliness with remarkable conviction; there's a thrill to be had. Time and money are rarely wasted in such entertaining and inoffensive ways.

This movie is so damn predictable.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

The story looks promising up to a point, but then it gets downright silly with a series of car chases and improbable coincidences.
