Basically, it's Double Indemnity... I thoroughly enjoyed this film.

Something you will have to seek out, but Michael Winterbottom is always worth seeking out.

Director Michael Winterbottom seems to be too interested in psychology to be able to deliver an effective action thriller. However, great leads and an air of mystery hold your attention until the bitter end.

More than anything, this wiry thriller works as a homage to the neo-noir genre.

Despite good performances and an interesting milieu, The Wedding Guest doesn't deliver as an exciting genre piece or thought-provoking drama. Michael Winterbottom is a master in many areas but the thriller seems beyond him this time.

The performances are perfectly solid and it always runs smoothly, but the film itself seems to take its leave of us with a shrug.

The Wedding Guest has all the right pieces there but fails to pull together into quite the finished product the high standards of its individual components suggest.

Depending on your expectations, this deliberately slow-paced thriller might serve as a satisfying "I do" or a disappointing "I don't"

While Dev Patel brings the best performance possible given what he had to work with, it's hard to feel empathy or root for any characters in a story that never really knows what it wants to be.

Patel works harder to hide his sex appeal in The Wedding Guest than the director does to make it an enticing film.

The film works surprisingly well.
March 27, 2019
A thriller that ambles along when it's supposed to be antic, that takes too many shortcuts in plot and character development.
March 25, 2019
A serviceable, low-key kidnap caper that turns out to be more of a travelogue than a thriller.
March 21, 2019
Winterbottom's confident technique holds us for only half the running time of The Wedding Guest, a flimsy thriller about a tight-lipped lone wolf possibly named Jay.

"[A] cool, efficient thriller.... The Wedding Guest is a curious, but undemanding film. It will satisfy viewers who go along for the ride. "

The plot is a bit thin and lacking in big action moments. But the chemistry between the tightly wound Patel and the poker-faced Apte, a fast-rising Bollywood star, is electrifying, and one hopes they each have more opportunities to smolder on the screen.

The film skirts classification as nimbly as it does pursuers, and in the process creates something that simmers on its own timetable.
March 20, 2019
From its opening scene, the narrative seems woefully short on compelling ideas.
March 20, 2019
Patel's uncompromising presence gives the movie its backbone. It's too bad he wasn't given more of a part to play.

Strangely, the further into the film the audience gets, the less tension-filled Wedding Guest becomes, making the conclusion feel both inevitable and uneventful ...
