child_44Reviews for this film from our members:

  • Dragan Antulov @ FAK [Croatian]
    • Excerpt: Impresivna fotografija i trud Toma Hardyja kompromitirani su scenarijem koji se ne može odluciti želi li napraviti ozbiljan film o strahotama života pod sovjetskim režimom ili uzbudljivi policijski triler.
  • José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Soporífero thriller que se convierte progresivamente en un confuso cambalache genérico en el que todo cabe pero casi nada importa. Una propuesta aburrida y trabada desde una narrativa imposible.
  • Nicholas Bell @ Ioncinema
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: Child 44 doesn’t just lose the plot. It loses the point.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Forbidding and forgettable, this adaptation of Tom Rob Smith’s suspenseful best-seller just doesn’t translate onto the big screen.
  • [New – 8/13/15] | Oktay Kozak @ DVD Talk
  • Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
  • João Pinto @ Portal Cinema [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: Muita expetativa e promessa, mas uma parca entrega.
  • Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz
    • Excerpt: Ostensibly about the hunt for a child killer in Stalinist Russia – a fictionalized account of the Andrei Chikatilo ordeal, as portrayed in the excellent HBO movie Citizen X – Daniel Espinosa’s Child 44 devotes only about a quarter of its 137-minute running time to the murder investigation it purports to depict.
