Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Rather than feel like an actual film noir, instead it feels like a modern film imitating the genre, and as such struggles to compel in quite the way it should."

"The Two Faces of January is by no means a disaster. It's undemandingly watchable in a way that...feels akin to a TV movie, one that's destined to be broken up for ad breaks and so can't afford to be too complex."

"It's an elegantly pleasurable period thriller, a film of tidy precision and class."
‑ Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
