Critic Reviews for The Persian Connection

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

Grove impresses with his sleek, inventive style and effective pacing but falls short on depth and substance.

July 13, 2017 | Full Review…

The film's attempts at gonzo transgressiveness only reinforce the notion that Daniel Y-Li Grove would rather get a rise out of his audience than craft interesting characters or a coherent cultural milieu.

July 10, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The Persian Connection is bold, tense, and thrilling, even if its thematic reach just exceeds its grasp.

July 25, 2017 | Full Review…

For all the predictable elements of the film, it's well structured and the pacing is impressive given the number of different threads involved.

July 13, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Grove sticks close to the crime saga playbook, suffocating the picture in style and pounding it with overacting, eventually stripping "The Persian Connection" of anything identifiable.
