Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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
"It's an eye-catching premise, though first-time director/writer Shan Khan lacks the rigour or panache to do it justice."
‑ Charlotte O'Sullivan, This is London
"An intermittently worthy attempt by writer-director Shan Khan to address a highly emotive subject."
‑ Brian Viner, Daily Mail [UK]
"A spiky supporting turn by Paddy Considine as a tattooed bounty hunter lifts this generic British thriller."
‑ Chris Blohm, Little White Lies
"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
"An interesting premise but stodgy, suspense-free execution."
‑ Simon Crook, Empire Magazine
"It's hard to work out for whom this semi-interesting hot mess was intended."
‑ Leslie Felperin, Guardian [UK]
"A serious subject receives a simplistic treatment in an ill-conceived thriller in which the emotive (and timely) issue of honour killings becomes just another plot device."
‑ Neil Smith, Total Film
"The film itself never quite comes into focus."
‑ Mark Kermode, Observer [UK]
"While it fails to reach its potential due to its identity issues, abandoning veracity in favour of thrills, Honour deserves credit for broaching such tricky subject matter..."
‑ Ben Rawson-Jones, Digital Spy
"Shan Khan's feature debut swaggers into its subject with more cocksure style than cogent analysis, like a tabloid splash designed to grip first and (if at all) illuminate later."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
