Critic Reviews for The Birthday Cake

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (3)

Given its meandering script and absurdly grand guignol ending, it's astonishing that The Birthday Cake could attract such a starry cast.

No matter how you slice it, this star-studded mob film still seems undercooked.

June 18, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Giannopoulos might be inexperienced, but he's canny with mood and unafraid to experiment with the rhythms of violence. I, for one, am keen to see what he does next.

There may be a great deal of competition in the category, but I nominate this crime drama as the worst Mob movie ever made!

July 30, 2021 | Rating: 2/10 | Full Review…

A barrage of mob movie cliches undermines what might have been an intriguingly offbeat tale.

July 22, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

[Giannopoulos] courts more groan-worthy comparisons by punctuating scenes of extreme violence with Scorsese-style needle-drops and deploying a terribly written voice-over narration that explains stuff that doesn't need explaining.
