Time Out

A dime-a-dozen, not entirely terrible London thriller.

The general topic is too titillating in execution to fully influence any worthy debate into the effects of isolating grief...

Too dull, too often.

Jeremy Heilman

It's a shame that so much talent and energy is placed in the service of a story that feels like it has been told far too many times before.

Movie Talk

From the clunky dialogue and dreary voice-over narration, it sounds as though director Kieron Hawkes has swallowed a GCSE psychology textbook and regurgitated gobbets of half-digested psychobabble all over the screenplay.

Jonathan Crocker
Total Film

Fluidly lensed and unsettling for an hour, writer/director Kieron Hawkes' debut thins out badly in the final third, leaving the charismatic Anderson to prop it up.

Observer (UK)

Capable but monotonous, it ends with a predictable twist that has a distinguished literary lineage.

Henry Barnes

It's a British rite-of-passage crime thriller, because it opens with a closeup of the protagonist's face and a voiceover that says "That's me".

Eve Barlow
Empire Magazine

A nasty Brit thriller that achieves the impossible and has you actually pining for Danny Dyer.
