Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This sour, repetitive fare fails to feed our hunger for either laughter or enlightenment. It's all empty calories and reactionary chic."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"It falls apart, but the cool cast and caustic script will leave most right-thinking people well satisfied."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"Deliciously Dark!"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Great premise. Lousy movie."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"It's tautly helmed by first-time feature director Title and well-acted by the able cast, particularly Vance and Annabeth Gish. But the film runs into trouble by quickly exhausting its one idea and by taking too long to get to its inevitable conclusion."
‑ Lael Loewenstein, Boxoffice Magazine
"As the body count gets higher, and the housemates begin to question their high-and-mighty purposes, the movie stumbles under its sophomoric moral weight."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"The Last Supper shows some darkly effective visual style, but it has none of the wit needed to save such a story from lumbering obviousness and sophomoric political debate."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"The flick seems like a long and well-told joke; one that's enjoyable to listen to despite the lack of a truly resounding punchline."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"The film's premise will undoubtedly lure in the liberal faction. They'll be in for a surprise."
‑ Darrin Keene, Film Threat
"In today's divisive political climate, where compromise is a dirty word, The Last Supper raises not only timely questions but moral dilemmas as well."
‑ Leslie Rigoulot, Film Scouts
"This low-budgeter that "came out of nowhere" is a fresh, pungent tale about Right and Left--and Right and Left--in contempo American politics, well-acted by a gifted ensmeble, including the young Cameron Diaz."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"You know you're in good hands in The Last Supper from the well-directed first scene."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"The Last Supper clearly shows that the noble principles are of little use when people can't overcome their lack of common sense."
‑ Dragan Antulov,
"Black comedy about the moral emptiness of all politically activated violence."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"It manages to be both thought-provoking as well being chock full of dark humor."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
