Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film is too smitten with its loathsome small-time crooks to generate much interest in the plight of the victims or portray any women as anything but hapless bystanders."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"Solidly played but the pieces audibly clunk into place."
‑ David Parkinson, Empire Magazine
"Another week, another set of mouthy geezers in suits mugging one another off."
‑ Mike McCahill, Guardian
"It's a promising feature debut for Stylianou; let's hope he explores fresher territory next time."
‑ Philip Kemp, Total Film
"First-time writer and director Peter Stylianou demonstrates future potential with Who Needs Enemies, but his debut feature fails to entice thanks to weak dialogue and stereotypical characters."
‑ Jennifer Tate, ViewLondon
