Critic Reviews for The Cleaner

All Critics (6)

There's something dirty and rotten about The Cleaner. And it's not just the scumbag characters in this movie. It's a crime drama that tries to go for gritty realism, but it's just a ridiculous mess of a story with terrible dialogue and lousy acting.

December 29, 2021 | Full Review…

The Cleaner is a slowed paced drama filled with details. A story about broken characters struggling to make the best under dire circumstances. A pretty unusual cinematic experience. Something we don't get to see that often.

November 9, 2021 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

A knucklehead indie noir that's not too good but avoids being bad.

October 21, 2021 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The Cleaner reveals once again that solid acting, relatable characters, and a good story can do so much more on a limited budget than a blockbuster movie with a weak story and cliched characters.

October 20, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A quietly-compelling mystery set in a milieu that's grittier than most of the characters living in it are willing to admit, struggling people who are colorful, believable and (mostly) relatable.

October 13, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

It's not bad. It's not great, but has some good acting and is entertaining.
