Time Out

The performances are intense and Morton Søborg's gritty, atmospheric cinematography recalls '70s crime movies such as 'The French Connection'. Sadly, the tonally uneven 'WAZ' cannot quite match their piercing intelligence.

A little too close to torture-porn for most tastes, but debutant director Tom Shankland shows promise.

Recommended for audiences who thought Kevin Bacon's Death Sentence was too restrained; everyone else steer clear.

'The Killing Gene' feels like a film that was trying to be something else -- maybe a dark and bloody episode of 'The Wire.'

Although he struggles to make the British-feeling production convince, UK helmer Tom Shankland gets the faux-Fincher nihilism just right.
