Critic Reviews for Pimp

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

It's clear every actor involved was deeply committed to not just their characters, but to the narrative.

December 28, 2018 | Full Review…

"Pimp" is too one-note and grinds its way somewhat drearily to an inevitably bloody conclusion.

November 8, 2018 | Full Review…

The movie might leave you drained and disgusted, yet it also serves as a reminder that Palmer (whose last notable feature, "Akeelah and the Bee," was 12 years ago) is an unusually intense talent who deserves a much better vehicle than this one.

November 8, 2018 | Full Review…

The strongest element of all is Palmer's thoroughly gripping performance.

November 7, 2018 | Full Review…

A snappy one-note lesbian love story set in the mean Bronx streets, that sells its ass as a sleazy '70s blaxploitation film.

May 8, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Sex, murder and dark secrets are the key ingredients of the tale that begins when Sarah (Ella Scott Lynch) meets Lewis (Benedict Samuel) for a potential night of passion.
