Critic Reviews for The Vicious Kind

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (3)

  • The characters spend far too much time working through their problems with drama-deadening directness.

    February 11, 2010 | Rating: 2/5
  • It's the sort of Sundance-approved movie that takes place in a stereotypically bleak rural locale, while an acoustic guitar twangs mournfully over the soundtrack.

  • Indie drama reveals talent in front of and behind the camera.

    December 14, 2009
  • The Vicious Kind upends the heavily tread dysfunctional family drama in ways that are unique, surprising and memorable.

  • Vicious Kind doesn't have much in the way of new corners to offer the domestic disturbance genre, resulting in a film greatly dedicated to misery, but offers no tangible reason why anyone outside of the filmmaker should care.

Audience Reviews for The Vicious Kind

  • May 05, 2012
    The greatest thing about "The Vicious Kind" is Adam Scott, who has the all around best portrayal of a misanthrope I have ever seen. His character is cruel, threatening, and a real downer of a person, and to say that Scott nails his role would be an understatement.

    I haven't really seen Adam Scott in anything, but his turn in this dramatic role is indeed vicious but also vulnerable. Caleb's insulting outbursts cut with vitriol, and his blubbery apologies pour with nonsense that he can't quite understand himself. I'm not really sure of the movie's premise - the only way Caleb knows how to protect is brother is by hurting him and that's why he sleeps with his brother's girlfriend...? The motifs of desperate need and succumbing to attraction because of the other person's attraction to you are all interesting, but the ending shows no real aftermath of that behavior.

    This movie is pretty damn good with some strong performances and sharp writing. It's not the best indie movie I've ever seen, but it's still really good and it will hold your attention through its entirety.

    Better scripted than any indie drama or comedy I've seen in a good time. Adam Scott's performance is remarkable and his range as an actor is moving. A movie that's alive and refreshing like 'The Vicious Kind' doesn't get made enough.
