Reviews


30
The New York Times - Jeannette Catsoulis
A cheapie hostage drama with a lot more swagger than substance, The Killing Jar strains to wring tension from a tired premise and an airless script.
30
Los Angeles Times - Unnamed
Benson is so terrible her close-up line readings feel as inconsequential as the insert shots, and Madsen, it must be said, finally looks exasperated with playing grumbly psychos. At times he looks as helpless as his hostages.
20
Time Out - Unnamed
Mark Young’s bargain-basement thriller is as witless as the captor’s motive; to paraphrase another well-dressed Madsen psycho, this little doggie barks, but it has no bite.
20
The Hollywood Reporter - Michael Rechtshaffen
A cliched, talky variation on the 1936 Bogie classic "The Petrified Forest," with scant dramatic tension but gallons of spilled blood on the menu.
10
Variety - Unnamed
A spectacularly boring chamber thriller.
