Critic Reviews for The Lie
Too stupid to be the hard-hitting drama it was first sold as and too self-important to be the black comedy it really should be, Sud's film is a master class in bad decision-making, improbable choices, and overwrought acting.
Still, after roughly 90 minutes of unbelievable behavior and botched suspense, the twist ending is too audaciously ridiculous to entirely resist. You'll scream, but not in fear.
The film is a little bit too controlled... But there were good moments where I was yelling at the screen "What are you doing?"
"The Lie" is far from a total success, but it has enough tension and talent to make you hope that Blumhouse keeps aiming a quiet thriller or two at adults.
This is the kind of movie that Mystery Science Theater 3K would have had a field day with.
