The Guardian - Peter Bradshaw
There’s a very entertaining daftness and theatre nerdery to See How They Run (the title sounds uncomfortably like Run For Your Wife) as director Tom George takes the same approach to The Mousetrap that Ken Russell took to The Boyfriend: playing up the artificiality of it all. The comedy is shallow in the right way, and Rockwell’s bleary world-weariness contrasts nicely with Ronan’s saucer-eyed idealism.

Variety - Amy Nicholson
See How They Run is a retro homage that surprises audiences with giggles and suspense.

Empire - Ian Freer
It works better as a weird relationship movie than a murder-mystery but See How They Run is the whodunnit as hoot, with lots of laughs, oodles of style and played with verve by a quality cast. It also reconfirms Saoirse Ronan as a comedy god.

Slashfilm - Hoai-Tran Bui
Is it exceptionally groundbreaking? No. But it's fun, and frothy, and clever enough that it makes for an easygoing hour and a half watch.

Movie Nation - Roger Moore
Oh, it’s not as clever as it thinks it is. And truthfully, for a “romp” it only occasionally romps. But See How They Run is still a warm, witty and winning old fashioned “whodunit” and an equally old-fashioned “theater” comedy, pronounced “THEE-a-turr” in the British style. I found it an old fashioned hoot.
