Paste Magazine - Natalia Keogan
While the visual and thematic richness of Night in Paradise could adequately carry the film on their own, the wry comedic tone that often infiltrates even the darkest exchanges between characters enhances the overall emotional payoff.

The Hollywood Reporter - Deborah Young
Night in Paradise contains a lot of good plotting, several amusing characters and a decent array of exciting action scenes and bloodshed. But it is indulgently long.
60
Screen Daily - Jonathan Romney
You just wish that director Park had managed to execute the film as a whole with the crisp efficacy of some of his individual sequences.
60
The Guardian - Leslie Felperin
Leisurely pacing rather draws it all out a bit, but there’s real inventiveness to the way Park wrong-foots the viewer and handles the operatic displays of gunfire and death – and the leads are rather charming.
58
The A.V. Club - Unnamed
Night In Paradise is an exceptional resource for anyone trying to understand how stories can be told within the frame, even as it consistently trips on its relentless grimdark tendencies. There are no pleasant people to be found here; there is no path that doesn’t lead to the grave.
