Revenge (18)


French language thriller in which a woman avenges a violent assault after she is left for dead.

The critical consensus

With the near-unbearable scenes of self-surgery, sexual violence and several bathtubs’ worth of blood, this is an uneasy and intense watch. See it if you can stand it.

****(*)Helen O'Hara, Empire Online, 08/05/2018

A slick production, but not the subversive classic we were hoping for.

**(*)(*)(*)Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 08/05/2018

It's slick and stylish but also very shallow.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 09/05/2018

Satisfying and stylish French rape-revenge horror from debut director Coralie Fargeat.

****(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 07/05/2018

A well made film, which slithers confidently in its slick of blood.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 10/05/2018

Coralie Fargeat’s blood-soaked thriller is a wild ride but fails as a feminist genre-buster.
