Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"British director Shan Khan debuts with an exploitative but absorbing thriller on the topical subject of Muslim honor killing."
‑ Guy Lodge, Variety
"Aiysha Hart delivers a mesmerizing performance as a beautiful Pakistani immigrant raised in England who disgraces her family by planning an elopement with a handsome preppie Punjabi boy."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"Shan Khan's debut feature film, Honour, is an expose of honor killings in contemporary Britain -- a reality not easily digested."
‑ Amy R. Handler, Film Threat
"A whole lotta violent bigoted men discussing women's lives as if they merit any say in the matter. If only pop culture were as concerned with women's stories as it is with men's."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"We don't leave the cinema feeling like we've just sat through a truly accomplished piece of cinema, and unfortunately, in this instance, that's what matters most."
‑ Stefan Pape, HeyUGuys
"Mr. Khan displays a strong visual sense that makes pivotal scenes pop."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Khan's orchestration of suspense impresses; he proves especially skilled at dropping well-timed close-ups on objects that immediately add conflict to a situation ..."
‑ Danny King, Village Voice
"Whatever impact the film gains from its startling subject is all but dissipated ..."
‑ Susan Wloszczyna, RogerEbert.com
"A taut thriller about honor killings that is marred by plot improbables. Saved by Paddy Considine's customary fine performance as well as a strong lead character, a young woman fighting against patriarchal chains."
‑ Louis Proyect, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"There's such an important issue at the centre of this British thriller that the film should not be ignored, even if filmmaker Shan Khan strains to turn it into a formulaic thriller."
‑ Rich Cline, Contactmusic.com
"A partially successful hybrid of social-realist drama and escapist revenge thriller."
‑ Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter
"Confused plot, accents difficult to understand."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
"Paddy Considine's benumbed ambiguity at least works against writer-director Shan Khan's reduction of honor killings to grist for the cheapest of pulpy thrills."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"The performances are pretty committed."
‑ Siobhan Synnot, Scotsman
"The film itself never quite comes into focus."
‑ Mark Kermode, Observer [UK]
