Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Cue a lot of inscrutable double-crossing, 'Murder She Wrote'-level suspense and endless recitations of Handel's 'Messiah' - well, you have to class things up somehow."
‑ Guy Lodge, Time Out
"Ludicrous thriller that almost qualifies for so-bad-it's-good status, thanks to a nonsensical script, poor performances and dreadful direction."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Lazy and futile."
‑ Bethany Rutter, Little White Lies
"Writer-director's Jerome Le Gris' sub-Hitchcockian thriller piles up the genre clichés to the point where you assume the whole enterprise must be an Agatha Christie-style parody."
‑ Tom Dawson, Total Film
"Mélanie Laurent glides with L'Oréal serenity through this entirely terrible film as Lucrèce, an ice-cold assassin."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Virtually defining style over substance, Requiem for a Killer disappoints on almost all fronts."
‑ Shaun Munro, What Culture
"A precocious French schoolboy's idea of sophistication, the film is as deep and as brittle as a coating of glossy nail varnish."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"[A] startlingly ludicrous hit-girl thriller, in which Mélanie Laurent must go undercover as an opera singer to off a fellow soloist."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
