Critic Reviews for The Dig

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (3)

  • With admirable economy the Tohills and screenwriter Stuart Drennan establish a stand-off between men in small, dark holes who have sublimated all feeling into obsessive, possibly futile activity.

  • There's a whole lot of digging, but not much suspense or interest dug up in "The Dig."

  • A flick that starts with a fantastic premise, but ends with a twist that feels more like a cheat than a revelation.

    September 11, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Although the high melodrama ultimately betrays the deliberate middle section, this is a film that takes themes of redemption and forgiveness seriously.

    February 28, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The poetic potential and emotional complexity get lost - but it's still an intriguing idea, marking an auspicious start to the Tohill brothers' career.

    May 1, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Although The Dig may not fulfil the plot-heavy murder mystery category that some people may hope for, the premise is both novel and consuming.
