Violet & Daisy Reviews

Page 1 of 3
June 6, 2013
Violet & Daisy is a tonal sugar high in all the worst ways - an overload of marshmallows and lollipops which work awkwardly with the whole contract killing theme Fletcher attempts to use as a funny contrast.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

Essentially, the film is Tarantino-ultralite -- just without the crisp dialogue, graphic violence or much of a plot.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.9/10

Talky and artificial, it moves like a sort of lobotomized Hal Hartley movie ...

The script might have pushed harder, and included more incident and less of the rote psychologizing that bogs things down in the final reel.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
June 7, 2013
The film's subtle visual allure is all but stamped out by the impression that the director tries too hard to be an idiosyncratic auteur in the vein of Quentin Tarantino.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Not as cute as they think they are.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
June 6, 2013
A candy-colored offering of bloodshed and banter so self-conscious that it alienates the viewer early and often.
June 9, 2013
A movie can stick with genre basics if it has fun doing so, but Violet & Daisy lacks the freewheeling spirit of great B movies.

If you want to see Saoirse bumping people off, go with the stylish "Hanna" instead.

Ronan is good at shifting between killer and kid. But it's impossible not to wish she would once again have a role that matches her talent.

June 5, 2013
This smartly acted but over-directed and woozy hit-girl comedy, on the shelf since 2011, garners a few chuckles early on but swiftly plunges right off the rails.
June 6, 2013
Violet and Daisy's cutesy chatter, and violence set to great old songs, are the movie's reasons for being. Which ultimately isn't enough ammo.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 6, 2013
The bouncy, blackly comedic cartoon that begins this movie segues into a suspense-challenged, severely sincere drama that winds up, much like Violet and Daisy frequently do, without any bullets.

Leads Bledel and Ronan show spark and interest to lean into the shaming Fletcher initially appears to value, but their efforts are gradually flooded by a helmer who doesn't quite know what type of movie he wants to make.

A rather dull affair.

December 5, 2013
Alexis Bledel and Saoirse Ronan are way too good for material as obnoxious as this.
June 7, 2013
You can almost see the moment when the super-talented Saoirse Ronan checks out in terms of character and I think James Gandolfini gave up before the end of rehearsal. I just felt bad for Alexis Bledel.

Fletcher should have done more than applauding himself after writing 'Diablo Cody' on one hand and 'Quentin Tarantino' on the other.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
June 6, 2013
We don't feel the weight and menace of death, nor the volatile emotions of youth, and have nothing to respond to beyond the spectacle of girls with guns.

Violet and Daisy are just violent and crazy - which is, ultimately, the real problem. And why we should care about them remains the one mystery no one here can quite unravel.
