Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Punch is a fascinating curiosity, in some ways as confused and unresolved as its characters."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"[B]izarre, would-be literary exploration of incestuous father-daughter attraction, anger management, and women beating the crap out of each other..."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"This is a good premise, but written and acted in a fashion that rings false."
‑ Ray Conlogue, Globe and Mail
"In some respects, Punch still packs some, but it will leave you feeling woozy and glad when the bell rings."
‑ Derek Tse, Jam! Movies
"A flawed film that despite having some curiosities ends up looking too smart for its own good."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"Tough, smart and funny."
‑ Jason Anderson, eye WEEKLY
