Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Is there a point to this spew, a cry against the mongrel violence of men? Or is Noe merely a sadist who enjoys inflicting ugly, pitiless images on his audience? – Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Noe's summation is an ideological sucker-punch from a filmmaker who gets off on abusive relationships. – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A genuine outlaw work of art. – Stephen Hunter, Washington Post, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: The reverse chronology makes Irreversible a film that structurally argues against rape and violence, while ordinary chronology would lead us down a seductive narrative path toward a shocking, exploitative payoff. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jun 24, 2010

I hated this movie. The violence was too extreme and unpleasant. I can't imagine anyone watching this movie more than once. It must be said I love horror movies but I thought this movie was awful.
