Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A pretty sharp new thriller. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Feb 22, 2013

Fresh: The juiciest part is Hopkins,' and he makes the most of it. Helped by some highly dramatic lighting, actor makes the role the personification of brilliant, hypnotic evil, and the screen jolts with electricity whenever he is on. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Feb 27, 2018

Fresh: Hopkins' performance may be the film's bravura showpiece, but Foster's goes the whole distance, steadfast, controlled, heartbreakingly insightful, a fine addition to her gallery of characterizations. – Sheila Benson, Los Angeles Times, Oct 3, 2014

Fresh: Hopkins' performance is spectacularly unnerving and should win him future award nominations. Holding her own against Hopkins' hare is Jodie Foster as the tenacious, tortoise-like trainee. – Duane Byrge, Hollywood Reporter, Feb 14, 2018
