Critic Reviews for The Standoff at Sparrow Creek

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

The chief pleasure of this small, self-contained film is in its dialogue, which is leaner and less garrulous than in Zahler's films and will be throwback heaven for David Mamet fans.

The Standoff At Sparrow Creek exudes nail-biting tension thanks to Badge Dale's commanding investigative brutishness. Exquisitely tense and heated to a furious boil.

October 18, 2018 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

Dunham's debut is a taut, tight work of pulp fiction that's practically predestined to draw comparisons to Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs.

Dunham's ongoing efforts at establishing a tense atmosphere of escalating paranoia fall hopelessly flat...

September 14, 2018 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Henry Dunham attempts to out-clever the audience at every turn in Sparrow Creek, and in the process distorts his vision so much that you leave the film confused and frustrated.

One might wish for the bolts of this well-oiled machine to pop out once in a while, but Standoff remains a confident, engrossing, and memorable effort.
