September 28, 2017
On-the-nose-ness, multiplied across the film's running time, undermines the film's sturdy dramatic arc and absorbing local texture.
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 2, 2017
This hit-and-miss crime drama never quite finds its feet, despite an intriguing West Country setting, some attempts at social commentary and two meaty roles for Ireland's finest thesps, Brendan Gleeson and Michael Fassbender.
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 2, 2017
A rickety curio that wavers between whimsy and dour melodrama, it drifts aimlessly, achieving very little - much like the Anglo-Irish vagabonds the film revolves around.
March 1, 2017
It has a compelling and charismatic performance from Michael Fassbender but suffers from an identity problem.
February 27, 2017
The accents may not be perfect, but the sparring between father and son, with violence just underneath the surface, is convincing.
February 27, 2017
While Trespass Against Us may be a familiar crime family saga at heart, the very fact that it takes place within a community we're not used to spending time with in cinema is enough to make it feel distinctive and fresh.
February 15, 2017
Gleeson's command of his role is so convincing and his inventory of Colby's odious ploys so imaginatively arranged that you can't look away.
February 10, 2017
This film has neither the humour nor the extreme violence of Snatch, but it is still catches the attention.
February 10, 2017
Trespass Against Us isn't that great, but Michael Fassbender is fantastic in it. It's worth checking out on VOD for Fassbender's wolfish grin alone.

If palling around with a group of wastrel criminal types whose idea of fun is burning their possessions while running around shirtless chasing rabbits, then Trespass Against Us is the film for you.
January 25, 2017
The movie, lamely directed by first-timer Adam Smith, drifts from campground to fistfight, without much purpose or impact. The accents, thick as cold porridge, just drift.
January 21, 2017
A film like this needs sociological credibility, artistic distinction or, at the very least, interesting, engaging characters.
January 20, 2017
Director Adam Smith doesn't hit the mark with every chance he takes, but for the most part this is an admirable and successful effort.
January 19, 2017
Though thematically vague, thinly plotted and without a reliably sympathetic soul to cling to, the movie has a mutinous energy and an absurd, knockabout charm; even its violence is more quirky than brutal.
January 19, 2017
Generates more apathy than empathy for the small-time criminals at its center.
January 19, 2017
"Trespass Against Us" plays like the quirky indie-fication of the family gangster movie, its scrappiness overlaid with a patina of we're-all-in-this-together slickness.
January 19, 2017
Gleeson and Fassbender enthusiastically feast on their meaty roles ...
