Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A combination of flat scripting and dull camerawork leave 'The Man Inside' languishing in TV-movie hell."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"We would say something about "first-round knockout", but then it's not really a boxing picture. So, we won't."
‑ Donald Clarke, Irish Times
"It is capably assembled but so incessantly, furiously gloomy as to be almost unwatchable."
‑ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
"Strong British independent cinema deserves an audience, but The Man Inside never lands a punch."
‑ Eddie Harrison, The List
"It's so mired in overwrought melodrama that, while it packs a few punches, it fails to deliver the knockout."
‑ David Aldridge, Radio Times
"Peter Mullan adds gruff authority and class but there is not much else to commend this effort from writer/director/producer Dan Turner."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"Director Dan Turner demonstrates the occasional piece of visual flair, but his storytelling abilities totally shot."
‑ David Jenkins, Little White Lies
"The Man Inside is well made but pushes us towards a kind of hyper-realism that pays decreasing dividends."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"This is intelligent and ambitious work."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Engaging, well made urban drama with striking camerawork, strong performances and a powerful central theme, though the dialogue wobbles occasionally and there are a couple of embarrassingly bad lines."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
