Critic Reviews for The Dig

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (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.

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

  • 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.

    Apr 30, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The story delivers enough twists and dramatic turns to remain compelling, and the psychology is subtle.
