Critic Reviews for Omertà

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

The film is taut throughout, an expertly staged thriller about a baffling paradox of a real-world man.

It is about as effective as a dramatised Wikipedia entry - there is nothing in its 96-minute runtime that we don't already know.

March 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Sadly, Omerta ends up being a rather flat narrative, clinical in its depiction of events most people are aware of through news reports.

A decent, focused film.

Rajkummar Rao has elevated the film through his performance.

May 7, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Omerta's pace is so unrelenting and Rao's acting so immersive that it is impossible to turn away from the screen for a single moment of the film's compact 97 minutes.
