Critic Reviews for The Platform

All Critics (93) | Top Critics (17) | Fresh (74) | Rotten (19)

  • It's anything but a balanced diet, but there's much to chew on regardless.

    November 28, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • If you can stomach it, "The Platform" is a funny and fierce farce with its eyes on race, class and the ways people can rise up for the betterment of all by working together.

    April 4, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • The notion is that, if each person took just enough to get by, there'd be plenty for everyone. But that's not always how people act. Have you tried buying toilet paper lately?

    March 31, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Gaztelu-Urrutia is making accusatory points about society, but he's not finger-wagging. The Platform delivers its moral message with the mechanics of a lean thriller.

    March 26, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A gnarly mash-up of midnight movie and social commentary, the picture is overly overt but undeniably effective, delivering genre jolts and broad messaging in equal measure.

    March 26, 2020 | Full Review…
  • There's an almost Lovecraftian sense of horror to The Platform, in that the characters are stuck in a vast, indifferent place they can't fully understand, and the answers aren't forthcoming.
