Close (2019)




Critic Consensus: Close puts a welcome female-fronted spin on the prototypical action thriller; unfortunately, the rest of the movie's ingredients are tediously predictable.

Close feels like many of the numerous direct-to-DVD titles that were prevalent during the 2000s.

January 20, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Close is strong on all counts, until it seems to lose its nerve and decides to explain a character who was more compelling when the film let her be a lethal question mark.

January 18, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Rapace gives the film her all, delivering an intense, physically demanding performance, but Close doesn't get close enough to transcending its action-movie clichés.

January 17, 2019 | Full Review…

"Close" works well when it sticks to the distinctive personal details of this kind of job; but it too often defaults to a run-of-the-mill international thriller.

January 16, 2019 | Full Review…

This a straight-out action thriller and... I would say not one of the better ones.

September 13, 2019 | Full Review…

The clever use of sound and a gripping performance from Rapace almost redeem it, but a weak script and an anti-climatic finale lets down what could have been a very promising film.
