The pace is so pedestrian it's a wonder the entire cast aren't on Zimmer frames.

Not bad, but it falls far short of It Happened Here.

Peter Bradshaw

There is little conventional suspense or action, just an undertone of violence, and a sense of hallucination and disorientation.

Daily Mail (UK)

There have been several 'what if' movies about what Britain might have been like had the Nazis occupied us. This is one of the worst.

Matthew Turner

Fails to capitalise on its intriguing premise and the pacing is painfully slow throughout.

Riseborough ... reminds us yet again what a great film actress she could be, in the right context.

Alistair Harkness

The film has the feel of Sunday night telly - perfectly serviceable, but not much more.

London Evening Standard

Ostensibly about decency and tough moral choices, these movies are actually an excuse to watch pretty people striding through pretty countryside.

A cold, bleak film. Riseborough is superb, but an all-too-brief Michael Sheen cameo underscores what's missing: conflict.

I've heard of "slow burn", but the wick's wet on this one.
Stephen Skudlarek
Possibly one of the most boring films ever made.
