Routine and unimaginative. [Full review in Spanish]
July 11, 2019
Hawke and Rapace (the original Lisbeth Salander) manage some chemistry in their scenes together, when not being held hostage to the creaky plot mechanics.
June 24, 2019
Director Robert Budreau doesn't take it entirely seriously, leaving us with something that is always interesting but lacks jeopardy.
June 23, 2019
From its gaudy 70s costuming to its goofy, wobbling tone, everything about this film feels uncomfortably broad.
June 20, 2019
Falling prey to his own Stockholm syndrome, Budreau lets his crooks off their dangerous foolishness.
June 20, 2019
[Ethan] Hawke and his Easy Rider moustache are clearly having a wild old time and their gonzo enthusiasm just about powers this otherwise inert drama over the county line.
June 19, 2019
The one-note wackiness of tone wars against the witty potshots, presumably intended, at incompetence on both sides of the law.
June 18, 2019
More like Dog's Dinner Afternoon.
June 17, 2019
Ultimately, such intriguing subject matter deserves more depth and less drag.

For a movie that claims up front to be based "on an absurd but true story," Stockholm sure could use some absurdity coursing through its veins.
April 26, 2019
After a while, ''Stockholm'' itself begins to feel like an ordeal, but it is unlikely that its victims -- sorry, viewers -- will wind up on its side by the time it concludes.
April 26, 2019
Stockholm doesn't work as a thriller, lacks psychological insight, and is pretty limited in terms of humor as well...
April 26, 2019
Stockholm is brought to life with some inspired performances, but it ultimately fails to hold the audience captive.
April 24, 2019
Overall this caper is a disappointment that leaves you captured by its promise and held hostage by the results.
April 18, 2019
We get a kind of Dog Day Afterthought that doesn't know whether to laugh or cry about the way human beings treat each other, with or without guns.
April 16, 2019
...a soporific drag...
April 14, 2019
The script has the bones of a good story, but it might have developed more tension if it hadn't jumped around so much.
April 12, 2019
True-life origins can't disguise the derivative nature of this heist thriller, which doesn't generate much of a rooting interest beneath its quirky surface.
April 12, 2019
Budreau asserts a kind of tortured primness, as if chastened by the realization that this all actually happened to real people. And they seem to be having more fun than we are.
April 12, 2019
The best thing you can say about "Stockholm" is that it's good enough to prove that a much better film could be made from this story.
