The Guilty (2021) - Rotten Tomatoes

The Guilty (2021)



Critic Consensus: The Guilty is another Americanized remake overshadowed by the original, but its premise is still sturdy enough to support a tense, well-acted thriller.

Does just enough to keep you engaged but nothing more.

Gyllenhaal works hard to make Baylor a more conflicted character. Yet in humanizing him the film also reduces an institutional failing into an individual one.

October 15, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Gyllenhaal's best performance since his phenomenal turn in Nightcrawler. The adaption itself does however fail to make a convincing argument for its existence.

If you come to this Netflix remake first, you are going to be blown away by a hurricane-force performance from Gyllenhaal.

Nails the setup, but there's still the matter of generating a tight enough plot to justify Jake Gyllenhaal's grand efforts. And that's where the picture runs into trouble.
