Critic Reviews for Downhill
"Downhill" retains the essential DNA of "Force Majeure," and therefore remains a strange and prickly piece of work.
Downhill is best watched without having seen Force Majeure because the comparisons are so unflattering.
Downhill is a good example of a well-regarded foreign language film that translates badly as an American remake.
The film oversimplifies the complexities of the original, however contrived they might have been, and generally lacks Östlund's subtlety and plaintiveness.
Inexplicably, Ferrell is the weakest link, downplaying his character's blooming sense of insecurity despite a celebrated propensity for arialike tantrums. Why wasn't he allowed to go full Step Brothers?
