Two-bit potboiler.

Maitland McDonagh
TV Guide

When the precise nature of Matthew's predicament finally comes into sharp focus, the revelation fails to justify the build-up.

Stephen Holden
New York Times

It turns out to be smarter and more diabolical than you could have guessed at the beginning.

Brent Simon
Entertainment Today

Blackwoods is all affected 'style,' not intelligent or clear enough to pull off its grand vision. When the final act twists come they don't feel so much shocking or intelligent as just ridiculous.

Boll uses a lot of quick cutting and blurry step-printing to goose things up, but dopey dialogue and sometimes inadequate performances kill the effect.

Lou Lumenick

Director Uwe Boll and the actors provide scant reason to care in this crude '70s throwback.

Harry Haun
Film Journal International

Crudely executed by all hands, Blackwoods is--true to its title--an overreaching blur.
