Critic Reviews for VS.

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

Too many moments come off as clichéd or contrived.

Oct 31, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's energetic and eager to please, and it certainly doesn't insult its viewers' literacy: the rap battles are cleverly written.

Oct 22, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Vs. may set its stall as the British 8 Mile, with its hard-done-by protagonist transmuting his rage into lyrics, but it goes its own way and is refreshingly progressive when it comes to gender and sexuality.

Lilly deftly handles a cliched story - there are parallels with everything from Eminem in 8 Mile to boxing drama Creed - giving it a distinctive, persuasive edginess.

The soundtrack is better than the movie.

Oct 19, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It's pungently acted by a cast of unknowns, and the wars of words are thrilling and often eye-wateringly offensive.
