Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""Cold Comes the Night" provides Eve with an opportunity to showcase yet another side of her talent."
‑ Christy Lemire,
"Cold Comes the Night is a serviceable low-budget thriller with a pair of strong lead performances and intermittently suspenseful scenes."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"The plot and characters all appear to be consequences of a group of writers that just didn't have a single iota of originality among the three of them, and as a result, it's simply not worth your time."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"Cranston's accent is Dick-Van-Dyke-in-Mary-Poppins-bad."
‑ Alonso Duralde, What the Flick?!
"Might have been at least a little diverting had even an ounce of ingenuity been applied."
‑ Mike D'Angelo, The Dissolve
"A bland and preposterous thriller in which Alice Eve and Bryan Cranston play unlikely partners in crime."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"It's hard not to be impatient with a movie as openly lazy as "Cold Comes the Night," which is redeemed only by its performances."
‑ Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"...a better-than-average thriller..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The film will leave you positively chilly ... and wishing Eve's talents had been suited by a better movie."
‑ Drew Taylor, The Playlist
"Perfectly serviceable B-movie noir."
‑ Annlee Ellingson, Paste Magazine
"A tense little thriller that provides juicy roles for its deft lead actors, Alice Eve and Bryan Cranston, as well as some well-played action and several neat twists."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"Cranston, in a fake beard and dark glasses, seems to be enjoying his goofy act. Trouble is, this isn't the kind of movie in which goofy earns goodwill."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Derails in the end, trying to neatly wrap-up a picture that demands a more sophisticated conclusion, but the basics sustain allure, especially when they're competently performed."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Viewers who aren't desperate to see Bryan Cranston play an offshoot of Walter White would do well to instead seek out past noirs that have made more out of this premise."
‑ Robert Levin, amNewYork
"You want to root for this little movie because it works so hard. But, finally, to not nearly enough effect."
‑ Marshall Fine, Hollywood & Fine
