Movie Reviews:

  • MSB: FULL SPOILER-FREE REVIEW @ https://www.msbreviews.com/movie-reviews/other-films-watched-spoiler-free-review-sundance/#emily

    “Emily the Criminal boasts two phenomenal performances from Aubrey Plaza and Theo Rossi, but its by-the-numbers crime-thriller narrative lacks sufficiently creative ideas to make it more than just an average viewing.

    The actress proves her immense talent once again, but it’s actually the actor who surprises in a more grounded role that breaks many stereotypes related to this particular type of character.

    A good ending may leave the audience with an opinion more positive than what the film warrants, but it’s admittedly entertaining and interesting enough… for a home release.”
