Us and Them Reviews

June 5, 2019
A thought-provoking film but its wayward tone and uneven execution lets it down.
October 22, 2018
A stylishly violent home invasion movie.
October 18, 2018
Writer-Director Joe Martin's Us And Them is a class war, social commentary filtered through a post-Quentin Tarantino cinematic world.

Turns out jerks come with all different sized bank accounts.

All in all, the effect is like Guy Ritchie has remade Michael Haneke's Funny Games after huffing old copies of the Socialist Worker.

It feels as if there are three different films struggling to get out and though it can be tense, this can undercut it at times. However, it's sparkily shot and edited, and the camerawork is interesting.
October 4, 2018
Biting, witty and cruel class war satire that goes too grim and too far to be as much fun as it wants to be.
October 4, 2018
The script's hyperactivity distracts enough from the fact that its musings on class conflict are underdeveloped at best.
April 18, 2018
Us and Them is anchored by stellar performances, Roth especially, but it can't decide what it wants to be or who it wants to champion.
April 5, 2018
Not as sharp as it thinks it is but funnier and better handled than it sounds from its description, Us and Them benefits from a solid sense of humor and a sure hand keeping the tone steady even as it changes direction regularly.

Who knew an Occupy Wall Street-approved plan would end in violence?
March 15, 2018
The gimmicky structure and style is more distracting than effective, and it mostly fails to compensate for an underdeveloped plot.
March 15, 2018
With frothing energy and unfettered vulgarity, "Us and Them" lances the boil of working-class grievance and watches as the infection spreads to everyone in its path.
March 14, 2018
As sleek and polished as Us and Them looks, it finds Martin not only biting from more established filmmakers, but biting off more than he can chew.
March 20, 2017
Us And Them might be a little slighter than expected, but Jack Roth's charismatic fire-starter has enough anarchistic anger to appreciate.
March 16, 2017
Us and Them feels precisely like the type of movie we so desperately need right now.
March 14, 2017
Roth continues to anchor the film and Martin has style to spare, but this is one of those projects that most of all makes you excited for what its star and director will do next.
March 12, 2017
While Us and Them may be simplistic and outlandish in approach, there's no arguing with the rampant injustice onto which it shines such a harsh light.
March 12, 2017
It's a decent concept for any sort of movie - a thriller, a horror flick, a comedy - but the problem here is that writer-director Joe Martin never quite decides which one he wants to make.
