Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is solidly made, but once you get past the attempts at realism - the banter, the backstories, the music, the clothes - it's a desperately corny yarn."
‑ Dave Calhoun, Time Out
"It doesn't quite come together, yet there's some rough'n'ready force."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"This British urban youth thriller isn't anything new, but is still an authentic and thought-provoking piece of gritty drama with energetic performances and a solid script."
‑ Jennifer Tate, ViewLondon
"The set-ups are familiar, the characters well worn and the film-makers' message (we are all victims) writ cornily large. But co-writer Chin is an imposing screen presence of whom we may expect more in future."
‑ Mark Kermode, Observer [UK]
"A few solid observations aside, this is the urban thriller running on low-fi autopilot."
‑ Shaun Munro, What Culture
"Anuva barrel of 'hood clichés it might be, but the sharp cast and snappy script (by Chin and co-star Michael Maris) make it fresher and funnier than it sounds."
‑ Paul M. Bradshaw, Total Film
"Preachy and cliched, Victim has some merit in the bantering dialogue and fresh, appealing performances but all the good intentions don't necessarily add up to a good film."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"Both script and cast deserved better."
‑ Adam Woodward, Little White Lies
