The movie's appeal certainly isn't in its poorly written, clunky screenplay that tries to throw in a few curveballs to make it look a lot smarter than it really is.

Clover is a good idea that never lives up to its potential.

CLOVER is not as clever as it thinks it is but it benefits from a strong cast...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 8, 2020
The overly familiar 'Clover' features a solid B-movie cast stuck in a standard B-movie storyline.

This crime movie's basic framework is wearily familiar, but it gets bonus points for a sense of place, a wry sense of humor, and the clever way it shifts female characters into positions of power.

April 3, 2020
So irredeemably awful that it could single-handedly kill anyone's desire to see any more movies under any circumstances for the immediate future.
April 3, 2020
While Clover may not be original, it is pretty watchable.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 3, 2020
From the occasional flashy camera angles to a soundtrack peppered with deep-cut R&B songs, this movie slots right into some well-worn grooves. And yet it mostly works, thanks to an ace cast and a story that springs a few surprises.
April 3, 2020
Clover is far from revolutionary, copying many of the tropes of past gangster movies without demonstrating the same level of sophistication in the script.

The main issue ... is that director Jon Abrahams never decides upon the movie's tone.

April 2, 2020
It's a good twist, but one that, had it been wedged into a lackadaisical script even 20 pages earlier, could have turned the caper into something even luckier.

April 2, 2020
While there are a few laughs to be had in this darkly comic caper, originality is a target that isn't even aimed at, much less hit.

April 2, 2020
It's chock-full of gore and expletive-laden banter, but lacks the key ingredients to make it worthy of its influences: original ideas and a strong script.
April 1, 2020
Abrahams has the right idea for screen energy, keeping things on the move before the whole endeavor tries to aim for cleverness instead of directness.

April 1, 2020
This violent caper lacks any real wit or novelty, ultimately leaning on tired stereotypes rather than doing anything particularly clever with them.
March 30, 2020
Precious little of it connects, makes sense or leads anywhere.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
March 11, 2020
It never manages to overcome its air of overfamiliarity, straining mightily but giving off little but flop sweat.
March 4, 2020
Things do get extra silly by the end, but the blackly comedic tone is consistent enough to allow for such a wild turn of events to feel at home nonetheless.
