Critic Reviews for A Vigilante

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (9)

[A] patient, nuanced film-making that showcases, in Wilde, a muscular and increasingly versatile screen talent.

May 31, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's a tough, tense movie with a couple of bone-snappingly violent moments, but critically it dials down the exploitation.

Top Critic

One of those small but brutal films that major directorial careers are made from.

March 29, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

It's... good to see a cunning and capable actress rise above her usual projects, such as stupid fodder like Tron or Cowboys and Aliens, or labels like "Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity of 2010."

Top Critic

The film manages to be both hopeful and devastating - and recommended viewing for anyone who subscribes to the facile notion that abused women should "just leave."

March 28, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Vigilantism is a questionable fantasy of empowerment, but Daggar-Nickson makes her movie (largely) work by keeping everything - her antihero, the registers of violence - austere and persuasively low key.
