Critic Reviews for The Voices
Think of this stylish, quirky and quite grisly feature from Marjane Satrapi as a meeting of Psycho, Dexter and Dr. Doolittle.
The movie has to be taken at face value: As a wacky and unsettling jaunt into sheer madness.
Casting Ryan Reynolds as a small-town geek who has trouble getting a date may seem as pointless as taking a loving cup to a Leafs game, but the bright-eyed Canadian star makes this dark, dark comedy twinkle with offbeat appeal.
A deeply warped, darkly funny and thoroughly depraved horror comedy. Ryan Reynolds gives one of his best performances.
It's the most likable Ryan Reynolds has been in a film in, well, forever, basically. He's not necessarily good, mind you.
Audience Reviews for The Voices
It is a rare find to see a film that works so (tonally) well trying to be simultaneously hilarious, charming, surreal and gruesome, forcing us to share its character's insanity and the disturbing nuances of his illness and thus becoming a tragic and horrifying experience in the end.
Ryan Reynolds has come a long way since his "Two guys and girl", "Blade", or even "Romantic-comedy" days, in this unequivocal career-best performance -- yes, better than even Deadpool and I'm willing to challenge anyone who wishes to repudiate that. The strangest, pleasant surprise of a movie, that I've stumbled into, lately.
Hilariously twisted, The Voices is an insanely funny dark comedy. The story follows a factory worker named Jerry who's a delusional schizophrenic that hears voices, and after accidentally killing a co-worker he starts to question his sanity (with the help of his dog and his cat). Starring Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, and Anna Kendrick, the casting is pretty good; Reynolds in particular gives an amazing performance. And, the script does an excellent job at showing Jerry's inner struggle with his different personalities. The comedy is also remarkably well-done, and brings some levity to the murder and mayhem of the film. However, at times things get a little too silly and the tone becomes uneven. Still, while The Voices may have its issues, overall it's incredibly entertaining and a lot of fun.
