[It] seems to exist only to answer the unasked question "What would "I Spit on Your Grave" have been like if the main character had been Martha Stewart?"

Pike phones in a reprise of her Oscar-nominated "Gone Girl" performance, complete with brittle perfection and a loose screw.

The Film Stage

Return to Sender is an equally repulsive and dreadful movie that deserves to be more than spoiled -- it should be murdered, buried, and never discussed again.

Mikati never settles on whether he's steering an identity crisis drama or an exploitative vengeance fantasy.

Even with the dramatic buildup, Mikati hesitates to make Return to Sender an all-out revenge fantasy, and the characters are too sketchy for an effective psychological thriller.

Rosamund Pike deserves better than this queasy exploitation pic, which plays as a belated dry run for "Gone Girl."

The concept for this film is a little bazaar. All the acting outside of Pike's character is pretty bad. The film is even boring at times and has some… More

I enjoyed this. If you enjoyed Gone Girl then this will be right up your street. A great performance from Rosamund Pike that leaves you a lot to think about… More
