I've seen character studies of people like this before, but when you slot in such great actors, everything feels heightened and delightful in its defiance.
March 6, 2019
An exceptional ensemble really delivers in a film that might otherwise have struggled to attract attention.
October 31, 2018
Trespass Against Us may not live up to the expectations that its two leading actors would bring, but it's still a modestly paced, entertaining drama.
August 24, 2018
A horrifying scenario but context is given that the hopelessness of their situation can be broken if there is the will.

Gleeson and Fassbender are class acts who bring an ever-mounting intensity to well-written and cleverly observed proceedings that turn out to be about education, defiance and power.
March 17, 2017
Trespass Against Me feels like a missed opportunity. Be reassured though, Michael Fassbender doesn't let his fans down.
March 9, 2017
Caught between tradition, suspicion and the reality of modern life, Trespass Against Us makes its point about the shackles and constraints of freedom very well.
March 6, 2017
Fassbender and Gleeson gnash through the mangled "Cheltenham backstreet" accent with vim and eat up one or two jaw-clenching scenes.
March 5, 2017
What sets Trespass Against Us apart is the fact that its milieu, the Traveller community, is one rarely seen outside Gypsy wedding-style TV series.
March 3, 2017
Honest yet non-judgemental, this puts the viewer in mind of Brit indie legend Shane Meadows...and that's no bad thing.
March 3, 2017
The story has pace and vigour, the performances are good and this is Fassbender as you've never seen him before.
March 3, 2017
There is much to admire here, but it's still a tale of deeply unpleasant people. You won't find anyone with whom to even vaguely empathise, let alone actually like.
March 3, 2017
Chad's attempts to negotiate these two worlds (his father's & society's) drive the film along at a rattling pace, even as Gleeson & Fassbender, at the top of their game (in atypical rles), bounce off each other with amiable wit and brooding menace.
March 2, 2017
The appeal of this outlaw life speeds through your veins then. Its Gloucestershire subculture, caught in the characters' accents, also fascinates. But the powder-keg lit by Fassbender and Gleeson's performances putters out.
March 2, 2017
With an extra dose of attitude and energy, this Irish comedy-drama hits us like a punch in the nose, launching at full speed and never letting up.
March 2, 2017
An enormously frustrating film that, thanks to smart casting and well-drawn characters, abounds in rich, gamey flavour and rough, palpable texture.
March 2, 2017
A family/crime drama with shades of Shane Meadows' early work and a satisfying double act in Fassbender and Gleeson.
March 1, 2017
It has a compelling and charismatic performance from Michael Fassbender but suffers from an identity problem.
February 28, 2017
Adam Smith's debut feature film ... is a nuanced character study set on the wrong side of the tracks.
February 27, 2017
The accents may not be perfect, but the sparring between father and son, with violence just underneath the surface, is convincing.
