Reviews


88
Chicago Sun-Times - Richard Roeper
A wildly entertaining, over-the-top, blood-soaked, noir-Western from director/co-writer Scott Wiper that’s filled with stunning visuals of the breathtaking and sometimes foreboding countryside (with Morehead, Kentucky, standing in for West Virginia) and searing performances from the ensemble cast.
75
Film Threat - Unnamed
The Big Ugly is a fascinating beast. While the premise of the film sounds annoyingly trite, writer-director Scott Wiper develops an engaging batch of characters.
67
Austin Chronicle - Unnamed
While not exactly rote, the script undeniably feels a little derivative in places.
40
The Guardian - Leslie Felperin
It plays like several plots, genres and mood boards all mashed together, which makes the end result interesting but not entirely successful.
40
Time Out - Phil de Semlyen
It’s oh-so-familiar terrain, yet writer-director Scott Wiper lets a deadening sense of inertia creep in, leaving the payoff feeling like a Guy Ritchie movie played at the wrong speed.
