Critic Reviews for U Want Me 2 Kill Him?

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (6)

  • [Director Andrew Douglas] is only partially successful at depicting its many twists and turns in convincing fashion. But it's compelling nonetheless, if only for the sheer bizarreness of the events depicted.

  • It's effective, in its way, and the acting is excellent, across the board. But "U Want Me 2 Kill Him" side-steps the real fascination with the story, its real guts, which is: Why?

    Mar 14, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Andrew Douglas, who directed the 2005 "The Amityville Horror" remake, mishandles the standard noir as straightforward drama and gives it an unfortunate after-school-special vibe.

    Mar 13, 2014 | Full Review…
  • A compelling but ultimately unsatisfying film.

    Mar 11, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The evils of the internet are unnervingly unearthed in this teen-oriented thriller.

    Sep 5, 2013 | Rating: 4/5
  • Walden's structurally elaborate script can't quite conjure the social and environmental detail necessary to make the belief-defying believable on a dramatic level.
