All Critics (45) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (16) | Rotten (29)

  • For an alleged psychological thriller, The Night Clerk has no thrills, suspense or tension.

  • Forget the half-baked investigation and quarter-baked love story -- the real mystery here is how this movie is so boring.

    February 21, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • [I]t's a bit ironic that in hindsight The Night Clerk will be remembered, if at all, as a movie de Armas was way too good for-an unfortunate mile marker on her road to movie stardom.

  • The film may intend to be a Rear Window for the mini-cam era, but it lacks Hitchockian perplexity and perversity.

Audience Reviews for The Night Clerk

  • Jun 19, 2020
    In moments, The Night Clerk did seem as if it had potential, but by the end, and most especially focusing on the end itself, it's very clear that any potential it may have had was, to put it politely, squandered. There are about three things that happen over the entire runtime of this movie, and all three of them have been done far better, not even "ever", but recently. Like, within the past two years at most. Because doing them better than The Night Clerk is a very, very low bar.
