Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The spiralling plot becomes increasingly academic while it seems to think it's being terribly clever."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"Sadly, there has been such a glut of gun-packed London crime thrillers, that it simply isn't enough to make one that looks good and has a fierce energy: you need a solidly structured plot that goes somewhere unexpected."
‑ Rich Cline,
"Oh lord, that was a genuinely complex and gripping London-set noir."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"It's ultimately let down by a confusing script and a frustratingly distant approach to its characters."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Wants to be Heat, ends up closer to a high-gloss episode of The Bill."
‑ Andrew Osmond, Empire Magazine
"Despite Sewell's laconic ruthlessness, Stephens's steely taciturnity and Byrne's world-weary arrogance, there's an all-round lack of conviction."
‑ David Parkinson, Radio Times
"Everybody's a supporting player. Nobody finds a trajectory worth following. Everybody is modestly corrupt. Nobody is believably conflicted."
‑ Donald Clarke, Irish Times
"It's a stylish and involving experience, with an intriguing touch of Mike Hodges. Isaac is a film-maker with a future."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Dreary, ridiculous and utterly unfathomable."
‑ Andy Lea, Daily Star
"It's not often you find a crime thriller that doubles as a tourist information video."
‑ George Bass, Total Film
"The latest attempt to make a British Michael Mann-style crime epic based on a fundamental misunderstanding of what Michael Mann actually does as a filmmaker."
‑ Alistair Harkness, Scotsman
"[A] smartly made but twirly-plotted thriller ..."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"All Things to All Men is relentless and entertaining in its fast paced narrative: a film that allows no respite from beginning to end."
‑ Stefan Pape, HeyUGuys
"Stylishly shot, but drained of power by flavourless writing."
‑ Siobhan Synnot, Scotsman
