Critic Reviews for The Reckoning

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (41)

  • Despite a spirited score and a few other redeeming features, The Reckoning is too clumsy, overlong and generally miscalculated to add up to an intelligent commentary on misogyny, or a satisfying riposte to it.

    April 18, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The film left me shaking with anger more than fear.

    April 14, 2021 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • A witch-hunt thriller that lacks the texture to be realistic and the no-holds-barred energy to be pulpy.

    April 14, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Just torture, torture, torture, torture.

    February 6, 2021 | Full Review…
  • [Kirk's] performance is more Faye Dunaway in cheeky bodice-ripper remake The Wicked Lady than Anya Taylor-Joy's rounded depiction of magical madness and misogyny in The Witch.

    February 6, 2021 | Full Review…
  • A well-meaning, but consistently staid horror movie about institutionalized misogyny, and the women who have to survive it.
