Critic Reviews for The Red Machine

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

The Red Machine is deeper than it first seems. The plot has hidden levels, and so do the characters, particularly the unlikely team of Doyle and Coburn.

Audience Reviews for The Red Machine

Between a 7/10 and 8/10, it employs a mechanism for telling a particular story, and it does so without a wasted movement. Yet everything it does hides a clue to something else - this is almost cryptographic film-making, every action having an apparent and an actual meaning. As the two work to find the Red machine, and steal it without stealing it, the key to what is going on starts to unfold.
