    Doesn't accomplish its objective. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    More vanity project than full-fledged film, Manu Boyer's modest chronicle is best left to diehard Kiefer Sutherland fans. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    Although Sutherland is an amiable and charismatic figure, his lack of emotional expressiveness doesn't help matters here. The film does, however, offer the spectacle of his getting a tattoo of the film's title (one of the band's songs) in Icelandic. show more

    Who knew the rock 'n' roll life could be so mild? show more

    New York Post

    Too bad nearly half the film is about DeLuca, who has an irritating Freddie Mercury wail and is both obnoxious ("We'll play downstairs after midnight or we won't play at all") and moronic. show more

    Even when he looks like a complete dolt, Sutherland still comes off sympathetically, as a cool guy. show more

    Joe Leydon Variety

    Deftly mixing alternating tracks of playful rowdiness, thoughtful introspection, ferociously slamming rock and not-so-quiet desperation, helmer Manu Boyer scores impressively with I Trust You to Kill Me, arguably the best rockumentary since "Some Kind of Monster." show more

    Los Angeles Times

    Has enough virtues -- principally Sutherland's presence and the quality of the music -- to make it an enjoyable trip. show more

    L.A. Weekly

    A rather standard out-on-the-road rock doc except for one unique and under-explored twist: The "24" star, after signing the band to his label, impulsively decided to accompany them on this barnstorming adventure as their tour manager. show more

    Village Voice

    Perhaps you are wondering why a little-known band called Rocco DeLuca and the Burden merits a glossy feature-length documentary of its whirlwind European tour. After watching Manu Boyer's film, you may still wonder. show more
