Reviews: The Good Liar (2019)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Most of us enjoy a good twist, but they only work when you don’t see them coming and this film goes to such extraordinary lengths to pull the plot out from beneath our feet it twists itself into a convoluted knot.

    • Excerpt: We expect a film about a con man to con us, but it’s not fun here: it’s absurd. This limp thriller might fancy itself smart, sharp, twisty, and probably feminist, but it just made me groan out loud.
  • [New] | Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: It may not rise to the ranks of other great British con men/heist thrillers, but it lets the veteran stars have a wicked fun time playing off each other.
  • [New] | Frank Ochieng @ Flick Feast
    • Excerpt: It is a rare treat to see this seasoned tandem share the screen so compellingly. Smooth, calculating and involving, Mirren and McKellen seek the absolute truth of twists and trickery in The Good Liar.
