Critic Consensus: Close puts a welcome female-fronted spin on the prototypical action thriller; unfortunately, the rest of the movie's ingredients are tediously predictable.

Critic Reviews for Close
Noomi Rapace is a badass bodyguard in Netflix's Close, but the movie's low-key racism counteracts its 'Yay, strong women!' message.
Close isn't so much an emotional puzzle to be solved as it is a box for Rapace to fight her way out of. But there isn't enough space for the most interesting commentary to flourish.
Close feels like many of the numerous direct-to-DVD titles that were prevalent during the 2000s.
Close is strong on all counts, until it seems to lose its nerve and decides to explain a character who was more compelling when the film let her be a lethal question mark.
Rapace gives the film her all, delivering an intense, physically demanding performance, but Close doesn't get close enough to transcending its action-movie clichés.
