Critic Reviews for The Guilty (Den skyldige)

All Critics (117) | Top Critics (24) | Fresh (114) | Rotten (3)

  • This Danish potboiler is organized around a few nimbly executed plot twists, and like many similarly designed thrillers, it leaves the audience with little to think about once all the surprises have been revealed.

  • The Guilty is a clever Danish thriller that takes full advantage of the strengths and weaknesses of modern communications.

    February 25, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • "The Guilty" is a nerve-wracking exercise in tension that also manages to reveal itself in layers, leaving assumptions dashed on the floor.

  • Make the right call and watch this immediately.

    October 26, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The Guilty stays afloat, but it never builds to the armrest-clutching peaks of suspense that the premise promises.

    October 25, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Godard said that all you need to make a film is a girl and a gun. Well, with his smart and mercilessly gripping abduction thriller, the Danish director Gustav Möller has pulled it off with a middle-aged man and a hands-free phone.

Audience Reviews for The Guilty (Den skyldige)

  • Nov 13, 2018
    At times its a little predictable but the movie is still compelling thanks to a terrific central performance. So glad one of these kinds of movies realizes that the second you leave the confined setting, the story is over.
