VFW

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.

Suddenly under attack from a gang of punk mutants looking to get back what's theirs -- at any cost -- the vets use every weapon they can put together to protect the girl, and their VFW, in the biggest fight of their lives.

All Critics (52) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (42) | Rotten (10)

  • 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.

  • "VFW" feels like it crawled out of a grimy, urine-soaked 1980s gutter. And I mean that in the best possible way.

    June 25, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • VFW is a low budget, DIY festival of blood and guts. When the gas hits the pedal, it's a full throttle drive into gore fueled mayhem and it's fun as hell.

    June 24, 2020 | Full Review…
  • As grindhouse cinema, it's solid and pleasing, but it is also saying something about the value of human connection and communitarian solidarity as the best treatment to collective malady, contra the fracturing pharmaceuticalisation of everyday life.
