Movie Info

In the long days of summer in a beach town on the New Jersey shore, high schooler Alan (Keean Johnson) and his friends Red (Alex Neustaedter) and Smitty (Daniel Zolghadri) break into vacation homes to steal valuables, funding dates at the boardwalk and lunches at the burger stand. When Alan and his younger brother Peter (Jaeden Martell) find a bag of gold coins, they try to hide them from the others -- but Red, suspicious and violently unpredictable, seems willing to do anything to get the money.

Critic Reviews for Low Tide

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (8)

Kevin McMullin channels the feel of Stephen King's 'Stand by Me,' along with various noir-toned '80s films, in this coming-of-age thriller.

A confident debut.

October 4, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

There is insufficient character development and insight, and the film has no ending, so the viewer just hangs in space, asking a million questions for which there are no answers.

McMullin could have done more to evoke his Jersey Shore setting or develop Alan's romantic interest without leaning on star-crossed clichés, but he makes up in tension and pace what he misses in local color and richer character detail.

Top Critic

Despite the inherent familiarity, the quietly observed "Low Tide," graced by a mournful, undulating score by composers Brooke Blair and Will Blair, nevertheless packs a genuine depth.

October 3, 2019 | Full Review…

This tale of a teenage gang of petty criminals whose alliance becomes fractured by a surprisingly big haul doesn't generate any real suspense and lacks the depth of characterization to make up for it.
