Critic Reviews for Requiem for a Killer (Requiem pour une Tueuse)

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

Mélanie Laurent glides with L'Oréal serenity through this entirely terrible film as Lucrèce, an ice-cold assassin.

June 14, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

[A] startlingly ludicrous hit-girl thriller, in which Mélanie Laurent must go undercover as an opera singer to off a fellow soloist.

June 14, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Lazy and futile.

June 14, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Cue a lot of inscrutable double-crossing, 'Murder She Wrote'-level suspense and endless recitations of Handel's 'Messiah' - well, you have to class things up somehow.

Top Critic

Jérôme Le Gris' film -- sumptuously shot though it is -- lazily rehashes previous girl-with-a-gun narratives.

January 9, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Writer-director's Jerome Le Gris' sub-Hitchcockian thriller piles up the genre clichés to the point where you assume the whole enterprise must be an Agatha Christie-style parody.
