Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Director Uwe Boll and writer Robert Dean Klein fail to generate any interest in an unsympathetic hero caught up in an intricate plot that while cleverly worked out, cannot overcome blah characters."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Two-bit potboiler."
‑ David Hunter, Hollywood Reporter
"When the precise nature of Matthew's predicament finally comes into sharp focus, the revelation fails to justify the build-up."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"It turns out to be smarter and more diabolical than you could have guessed at the beginning."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Blackwoods is all affected 'style,' not intelligent or clear enough to pull off its grand vision. When the final act twists come they don't feel so much shocking or intelligent as just ridiculous."
‑ Brent Simon, Entertainment Today
"Boll uses a lot of quick cutting and blurry step-printing to goose things up, but dopey dialogue and sometimes inadequate performances kill the effect."
‑ Andy Klein, New Times
"Director Uwe Boll and the actors provide scant reason to care in this crude '70s throwback."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Crudely executed by all hands, Blackwoods is--true to its title--an overreaching blur."
‑ Harry Haun, Film Journal International
