The chemistry [Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell] achieve is a powerful argument for giving Solace its chance on the multiplex circuit.

Observer [UK]

Poyart goes for sub-Fincher flash throughout, making the whole thing look like a slightly creepy commercial with pop-promo set dressing and risible VFX "visualisations".

Hopkins is always good value, and the plot has plenty of gory twists.

[A] reasonably clever genre entry ...

Hopkins is in a scene-stealing groove but Solace turns out to be an overcooked affair, fussily directed and far-fetched.

A lot of the blame for this misfire must fall on novice Brazilian director Afonso Poyart, whose crackpot editing and fondness for irrelevant zooming don't so much turn this film's screws as loosen them unrecoverably.

This is the kind of movie that's so heavily stylised one wouldn't be surprised to learn the crew had been upholstered to blend into the sets.

Sky Movies

Throws up just enough intrigue and theological-ethical questions to qualify as one of the year's more guilty pleasures.

Peter Bradshaw

It's almost exotically ridiculous.
