Christopher Tookey
Daily Mail (UK)

It's the kind of 'experimental' movie hailed as edgy, subversive and transgressive, when in fact it's inept, amateurish and loathsome.

Henry Fitzherbert
Daily Express (UK)
April 4, 2013
A tedious attempt to inject some style and artistic flair into the teen movie, combing outrageous behaviour with arty, slo-mo cinematography and a monotonous voiceover.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
Nigel Andrews
Financial Times

Drink, drugs, sex and robbery with minor violence.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
Tim Robey
Daily Telegraph (UK)
April 4, 2013
The trouble is all in the film's wildly anxious structure, which feels largely dictated in the cutting-room by Korine going out of his way not to be accused of a message.

Tim Evans
Sky Movies
April 4, 2013
As a director, Korine certainly has visual style (most of it seemingly knocked off from MTV Beach Party) but doesn't seem overly concerned with fleshing out any his buff bodies with character let alone dialogue.

Spring break 4eva!

Matthew Turner

April 4, 2013
A weird, day-glo fusion of trashy exploitation thriller and arthouse pretension, enlivened by game performances from a trio of former squeaky-clean TV stars and a deliriously brilliant turn from James Franco.

Dave Calhoun
Time Out
April 4, 2013
It's campy and comic at times, but Korine also gives the film a downbeat, melancholic edge, with voiceovers, pointed repetition of dialogue and images, and hallucinatory camera work, sound and editing.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
Peter Bradshaw
Guardian
April 4, 2013
For all its absurdity and voyeurism, Korine brings to it a real authorial style.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
Emma Dibdin

April 4, 2013
However self-aware Spring Breakers' sleaze is, there's something creepy about it as a male perspective on young women.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
Damon Smith
Birmingham Post
April 3, 2013
[It] quickly descends into a pointless repetition of images and vapid dialogue.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
Charlie Lyne
Film4
April 3, 2013
In appearing to embrace the mainstream, erstwhile enfant terrible Harmony Korine orchestrates one of his most provocative, formally experimental films to date.
Pamela Jahn
Electric Sheep
April 3, 2013
Its sparse narrative, following four bored-to-death college girls on a crime spree to spring-break paradise, is elliptical, hazy and marked by recurrence and a sense of dj vu.
Siobhan Synnot
Scotsman
April 1, 2013
Where's the provocation in a long, slow build-up to nothing in particular? Korine's movies have no answers or solutions. They just push buttons.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
Simon Crook
Empire Magazine
April 1, 2013
A lurid, luminous teen-bender movie, as ludicrous as it is stylish, and Harmony Korine's best film in years.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Don't believe the hype...this movie is an awful mess.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Killer Movie Reviews

It's not the wages of sin we need to worry about, it's bored co-eds desperate to feel alive
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Bolstered by a pulsating techno score, Korine fills the screen with attitude and energy to spare in his most mainstream effort to date.
Frank Swietek
One Guy's Opinion
March 29, 2013
Garish, goofy, leering and nasty, it's meant to be hypnotic, but winds up nearly unwatchable.
Full Review | Original Score: F

The message seems to be that spring break can turn girls gone wild into girls gone killing.
