Southern Fury (18)

Crime, Thriller

A Southern mobster attempts to rescue his kidnapped brother.

The critical consensus

The combined charms of Nicholas Cage and John Cusack might just have been able to save this made-for-VOD thriller, but they are both left on the sidelines.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Hamish Macbain, Empire Online, 20/02/2017

2016's excellent Hell or High Water proved that there's still life in the brothers-in-crime sub-genre, but Southern Fury feels clumsy by comparison – it's smattered with gore and overacting, and ultimately good for nothing.

**(*)(*)(*)Eddie Harrison, The List, 20/02/2017

This is absolutely not a film that warrants a cinema release but it might just qualify as a guilty pleasure for fans nostalgic for mindless, macho, straight-to-video action movies.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 22/02/2017

This crass, violent crime thriller, with Cage as a bulbous-nosed mobster, is laden with sentimental self-importance.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 23/02/2017

This violent thriller has no redeeming features – and that includes Nicolas Cage’s fake nose.
