Swerve 2013

Swerve

Critics Consensus

It aims for pulpy noir thrills, but Swerve never lives up to the twisty promise of its title.

  • As it zigs and zags, its plot unravels rather than tightens, and its curveball of an ending is bound to leave audiences feeling as double-crossed as some of the characters.

  • You've got your duplicitous blonde, a briefcase full of money, the hapless patsy, the angry cop, the loose cannon and the speeding train. Everything's so in order that you could doze off and catch up with the plot within seconds of reawakening.

  • It's enjoyable enough, but low on novelty, beyond the stark beauty of the sun-bleached Outback landscape.

    December 6, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • As the title of "Swerve" suggests, there's a lot of driving, and cars and characters veer, though never far enough for either to arrive at some place, some narrative, that's remotely new.

  • The story is uninspired, Lyons looks lost, and Booth makes for a bland femme fatale.

    December 5, 2013 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • The more narrative wrenches this modern-day noir throws at its characters-notably several literally physics-defying leaps of logic-the less involving it becomes. There are a few too many twists on this highway.
