Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A deeply cynical movie masquerading as a complex moral dilemma, the Australian drama "Felony" proves only that skilled actors and slick photography can tart up even the most problematic script."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"There's nothing glamorous about Felony's depiction of police work. These are stressed-out cops, flailing under pressure."
‑ Mike D'Angelo, AV Club
"Makes it extremely easy for viewers to not only empathize with all three characters but become completely engaged in the events that unfold, as well."
‑ Joseph J. Airdo, San Francisco Examiner
"It's an impressive piece of writing, keeping one hand on formula while the other searches for the truth of the moment, finding all sorts of unseemly and desperate behavior to dissect."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"It reveals itself to be a profoundly cynical movie posing as a work of idealism, and it's all the more insidious because it's otherwise so bland and forgettable."
‑ Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
"Starring a trio of top male actors in splendid roles, the intricate, intimate "Felony" is a police story crossed with a perceptive psychological drama."
‑ Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"Strong acting all 'round helps, but unfortunately this is just a slow ride to nowhere."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"It's unfortunately weighted down by a plodding pace and a depressing, dull narrative that reveals nothing about the characters or human morality."
‑ Adam DiLeo, IGN Movies
"It's Wilkinson who's the true standout as a boozy, belligerent, woefully compromised soul."
‑ Scott Tobias, The Dissolve
"Felony isn't interest in asteroidal impact, its focus is the butterfly wings that flap and whip up a hurricane; Edgerton, Courtney, George, Wilkinson and Roberts are the collateral damage."
‑ Blake Howard, 2UE That Movie Show
"It's a rare treat to see a suspenseful crime drama delivered with so much nuance and restraint."
‑ Stephanie Merry, Washington Post
"A lifeless Australian morality play about three corrupt police officers who cover up a hit-and-run."
‑ Simon Abrams, Village Voice
"It's potentially juicy morality-play material, but Edgerton's script does nothing novel with it, so that most of Felony is a long, drawn-out slog"
‑ Nick Schager, Film Journal International
"Not even the always dynamic Tom Wilkinson ... can save Felony from Edgerton's preachy screenplay and a performance that lacks personality and a clear point of view."
‑ Sarah Winshall, Under the Radar
"Actors may be the new screenwriters."
‑ Tony Macklin, tonymacklin.net
