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

All Critics (238) | Top Critics (65)

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.

August 26, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

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.

November 29, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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.

November 19, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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.

November 17, 2017 | Full Review…

The urgent docu-style filming is impressive, but it's Pattinson's fearless turn that lingers.

November 16, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The Safdie brothers' crime thriller Good Time is a chaotic, wildly inventive but increasingly self-indulgent affair.

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."
