Racer and the Jailbird (Le Fidèle) (2018)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Melodramatic and overstuffed, Racer and the Jailbird mainly serves as proof that Matthias Schoenaerts and Adèle Exarchopoulos deserve to reunite in a better movie.

All Critics (41) | Top Critics (10)

Schoenaerts and Exarchopoulos are still good, but the story drags them down.

May 10, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Gino and Bénédicte devolve from characters who determine their own destiny into ciphers who arouse more pity than sympathy.

May 10, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Two good characters and two good performances go into the old poubelle - or, as we say in English, the garbage bin.

May 8, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The work by the two leads is consistently committed, not to mention oozing with old fashioned movie-star charisma.

May 4, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

This is melodrama, after all, but borderline boring melodrama, painting over scenes of potentially high tension with blasé realism.

"You have to stop lying," a father tells his daughter's new lover in "Racer and the Jailbird," and that's exactly what I wanted to say to whoever made the movie's trailer.
