Critic Reviews for Woman Thou Art Loosed: On the 7th Day

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

Flatly shot and lit like a cable-TV movie, with a mismatched Franken-score of flowery flourishes and suspense-feigning propulsion, On the 7th Day sadly contains some fine, earnest acting...

Village Voice
Top Critic

This overplotted, underwritten, powerfully dumb soap-thriller has more professionalism than it deserves.

Boston Globe
Top Critic

This tawdry, faith-based kidnapping melodrama has a lot to atone for.

Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

A contrived and preachy melodrama produced by big-time televangelist T.D. Jakes.

New York Post
Top Critic

"Woman" is in essence an earnestly competent, slightly overcooked B-movie potboiler, with ideas of faith occasionally added to frame the story as parable.

Hysterically overwrought.

Audience Reviews for Woman Thou Art Loosed: On the 7th Day

If it weren't for the acting... Wow! I haven't seen a film this bad in a REALLY, REALLY long time. :0/ The writing and cinematography KILLED this movie. If it weren't for the acting, in particular my recent obsession with Nicole Beharie, I would've stopped watching this movie about 30 minutes in. I actually fell asleep on it and had to restart it and finish it the next morning. Decent idea/concept, terrible execution in writing. Pam Grier's performance was very disappointing. If it weren't for the obvious ways they inserted New Orleans into the film (I recognized my alma mater (XU) instantly & other locations) I wouldn't have known the setting. The accents were so disturbingly terrible! The story & plot was very flat. You see the ending coming about 15 minutes in. A poorly written, decently directed, actor-carried film that probably never should have been made. The most exciting thing about this film aside from Nicole Beharie's performance was seeing my alma mater. -__- Sad.


Melodramatic and contrived. It could have been so much better had it not been so dumb. A good cast is victim to a poor script.

A good story made this interesting. It was very confusing at times though. Would be nice to see again for additional clarity.
