Critic Reviews for Outside Bet

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

A waste of most of the talent on display, though everyone goes to it with admirable fortitude.

April 27, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

A few dips in the nosebag is enough.

April 26, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This is pantomime, not film.

April 26, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Very poor indeed.

April 26, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Tension in the final section is never enough to send pulses galloping, making this more of a trot over well-trodden ground than a hot tip.

May 7, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

I wish it were better, but it's more hardtack than Seabiscuit.
