Critic Consensus: A visual treat filled out by consistently stellar work from Robert Pattinson, Good Time is a singularly distinctive crime drama offering far more than the usual genre thrills.

Critic Reviews for Good Time
Good Time isn't an exuberant or happy-go-lucky emotional ride, rather it's the cruel irony of white privileged in even the lowest rungs of class.
Nick's character doesn't exactly develop, but we do see its innards teased gradually apart. Ben Safdie's touching performance bookends the film with enormous grace.
Pattinson is utterly convincing as the Manson-eyed Connie, a manipulative force of nature (alternately mesmerising, repugnant and pathetic) who leaves a trail of destruction in his wake.
The masterstroke of the script is how it takes a situation that, in almost any other film of this type, would be played for pathos... and instead strip-mines it for every last iota of moral ambiguity.
The urgent docu-style filming is impressive, but it's Pattinson's fearless turn that lingers.
Audience Reviews for Good Time
Never before has somebody drinking a bottle of Sprite made me wince in sympathetic pain and terror.
Robert Pattinson keeps proving that he can be an amazing actor when not playing a ridiculous vampire, delivering a magnetic performance in this frenetic, stylish and super tense movie bathed in neon lights but which only falters a bit in the end by wanting to have a "message."
