Cold Fish (18)

Drama, Thriller

The critical consensus

The climax is formidably bloody, but if you’ve got the stomach for it, Shion Sono’s ludicrous spectacle makes for compelling viewing.

****(*)Chris Buckle, The Skinny, 07/04/2011

The grisly, absurd violence of the final hour puts a wrecking ball through whatever interest this film might have accumulated.

**(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 06/04/2011

Cold Fish is truly not for the faint-hearted.

***(*)(*)Allen Hunter, Daily Express, 08/04/2011

It's overlong, drenched in blood and rather like attending a school for apprentice butchers.

Philip French, The Observer, 10/04/2011

Gallows humour and character twists offer welcome reprieve from the largely hysterical acting and rivers of viscera.

***(*)(*)Kevin Harley, Total Film, 13/04/2011

All leading to a suitably shocking, if a little predictable, blood soaked finale.

***(*)(*)Henry Northmore, The List, 15/04/2011

It’s something of a cold fish of a film.
