Critic Reviews for Inherit the Viper

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (7)

It has a really vivid sense of place, but I wish they had fleshed it out more because it has a story that needs to be told.

January 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Despite a running time of only 85 minutes, it feels like days of mean-spirited self-indulgence.

Top Critic

Evocatively moody atmosphere, a timely subject, and a fine performance by Josh Hartnett cannot help Inherit the Viper overcome its clunky dialogue and formulaic storyline.

January 10, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

This is a film that calls attention to a struggling region's problems in a general way, rather than telling in detail the true stories of the people who keep hanging on there.

January 9, 2020 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, for all its admirable intentions and the terrific performances by its talented ensemble, Inherit the Viper fails to have any genuine impact.

January 9, 2020 | Full Review…

"Inherit the Viper" is at its best when keyed into the disposability of human lives, but most of the film can hardly be bothered to care about the ones it chooses to follow.
