Critics Consensus

VFW's solid cast, deft direction, and surprisingly weighty subtext add extra heft to a gory thriller that should hold buckets of sanguine appeal for grindhouse fans.

  • VFW ultimately lacks the cinematic flair to be truly memorable. But the film succeeds on its own terms of being a nostalgic throwback to the days when such B-movies routinely opened on double and triple bills in urban grindhouses.

  • "VFW" is riotously scuzzy and warmly partial to its rusty heroes.

    February 13, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It's a regular intergenerational summit of a movie, bringing together a young director on the rise, a cast of veteran actors, and a recently relaunched magazine for an '80s exploitation throwback that's outrageous in all the right ways.

  • This is not a film with depth and personality, but more a homage to some of the most-loved and gory action movies ever made...

    March 29, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Joe Begos has swiftly become one of the most reliable film-makers in horror.

    March 12, 2020 | Full Review…
  • It's unfortunate that the combination of small spaces and low light makes some of the action sequences hard to follow, and the film could do with losing ten minutes to tighten up the pace overall, but there's still a lot to enjoy.
