Critic Reviews for Burn

Still, this is mostly a strong debut film, making good use of a single set and a talented cast.

Some of the choices strain credulity and the biggest name in the piece, Josh Hutcherson, feels miscast, but this is a film that kept me uncertain of what would happen next and affirms Gan as an interesting young filmmaker to watch.

August 23, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A passably diverting, moderately offbeat but also instantly forgettable hybrid that doesn't even rank among the best truck-stop-in-crisis movies...

An unconvincing nail-biter about fantasies of escape.

Ultimately, Burn is a movie to watch in the moment and enjoy to some extent, but it's not one due a revisit - for what would be the point?

Director Mike Gan delivers a dark, thrilling, and at times uncomfortable foray into an unstable mind.
