Critic Reviews for The Flood

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (17) | Fresh (27) | Rotten (12)

  • Liang makes an appealing and relatable protagonist, and her character wastes little time kicking seven shades out of the baddies in smoothly choreographed fights.

    June 1, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Flood is in many ways spectacular, but it's also very bitter in its depiction of the injustice and violence meted out to Indigenous Australians in the not-too-distant past...

    December 16, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The back-and-forth structure is sometimes monotonous, and Wendy's problems take too much focus, but there are specifics that linger.

    May 1, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Hot-button subject matter proves surprisingly less than compelling in Anthony Woodley's The Flood, a film about a British immigration officer interviewing a high-profile detainee.

  • "The Flood" makes a somewhat underwhelming first impression. But it gradually overcomes that to arrive at a potent (if still quiet) cumulative impact...

    April 30, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Written by Helen Kingston and directed by Anthony Woodley, the film is well-intentioned and rooted in harrowing real-life stories. Unfortunately, it's made in the style of British television, with cinematic clichés that telegraph outcomes.

  • A good-but-not-great indie with a benevolent heart.

    July 31, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Headey and Jeremiah's performances do ample heavy lifting - not enough to completely patch over kind-hearted but by-the-numbers material, but enough to ensure that their characters and their ordeals linger.
