Critic Reviews:

The real meat and potatoes of this film though are the relationships between the four main characters. It is their chemistry and their banter that make the film. [...] My biggest and only gripe here is that the suspense doesn’t hit nearly as well as it should.


It’s hard to ignore that Barbarians is very poorly written, and even with a largely talented cast, its energies are almost always focussed in entirely the wrong places. There are better, deeper and far more satisfying thrillers very similar to this, so sadly there’s little to recommend here.


...like any good storyteller Dorfman drops enough clues and hints, plus one or two classic misdirection plays typical of the mystery genre, to make any story developments both surprising and just as importantly, believable to the average audience member.
