By playing with storytelling rules, almost to the point of madness, Satrapi has elicited sympathy for the devil.

Swerving between pink-hued small-town satire and visceral gore, The Voices aims for the ghoulish humour of Eating Raoul or Parents - and, for the most part, misses.
Mar 19, 2015
It's wretchedly unfunny and tonally erratic, the striking production design notwithstanding.
Mar 19, 2015
The film is gory, odd (with its scenes of talking animals and severed heads in fridges), horribly uneven but intermittently very funny in its own tasteless, grand-guignol fashion.

The Voices doesn't work as a comedy because it isn't funny, and it doesn't work as a thriller because it's not suspenseful, and it doesn't work as an exploration of schizophrenia, if that is what this is meant to be about, as it's not insightful.

It is an overwhelmingly dislikable film, an intensely unfunny and unscary horror-comedy about a serial killer played by Ryan Reynolds on his most irritating form.

Full-force performance form Ryan Reynolds but not as funny as it hopes it is.
Feb 20, 2015
Think of this stylish, quirky and quite grisly feature from Marjane Satrapi as a meeting of Psycho, Dexter and Dr. Doolittle.
Feb 13, 2015
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.
Feb 11, 2015
A deeply warped, darkly funny and thoroughly depraved horror comedy. Ryan Reynolds gives one of his best performances.
Feb 9, 2015
Like Satrapi's other films,The Voices is stylish, striking, and lively.
Feb 7, 2015
It's the most likable Ryan Reynolds has been in a film in, well, forever, basically. He's not necessarily good, mind you.
Feb 6, 2015
This Ryan Reynolds-headlined indie strikes an uneasy balance between bloody mayhem and mirth.
Feb 6, 2015
The film is mostly a mess, albeit an occasionally endearing one.
Feb 6, 2015
I've always liked Reynolds for the most part, but he does his best work yet here in Satrapi's odd, pitch-black comedy about a man who talks to his dog and cat. And they talk back.

The big question here is why any of "The Voices," as crisply made and stylish as it is, should matter or entertain. The cold truth is that it doesn't.
Feb 5, 2015
Grisly but not especially suspenseful, tongue-in-cheek without any real wit, "The Voices" aims to hit the intersection of horror and comedy but tumbles into an uncanny valley of tedious creepiness.
Feb 5, 2015
Simultaneously bizarre, humorous, disturbing and suspenseful.
Feb 5, 2015
Like most slasher lampoons, The Voices tries to be as bloody and creepy as flicks that take psycho-killing more seriously. This is a major waste of time in a movie that's about a half-hour longer than its setup justifies.
