    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    Despite its noteworthy cast who presumably had some time to fill between better gigs, this is the sort of instantly disposable B-movie effort that Quentin Tarantino would have chucked in the wastebasket after a first draft. show more

    Chuck Bowen Slant Magazine

    Wayne Kramer thankfully refuses to cloak his excessiveness in hedge-betting self-consciousness and the result is a gratifyingly disreputable B-movie blow out. show more

    Roger Moore McClatchy-Tribune News Service

    It’s coherent enough, but entirely too long and unpleasant when it could have been one brutishly edgy hoot after another. show more

    Time Out New York

    Only one gag (involving a town’s rival barbers) sticks; the rest is just whistlin’ Dixie. show more

    Nathan Rabin The Dissolve

    The film doesn’t feel like a fresh riff on familiar tropes so much as a bad cover of Pulp Fiction. show more

    Gabe Toro The Playlist

    It’s all very first draft, with a layer of supernatural permeating the events that suggests added attempts to connect three wildly disparate storylines. show more

    Glenn Whipp Los Angeles Times

    Kramer, 10 years removed from his lone critical success, "The Cooler," and writer Adam Minarovich aren't exactly aping Tarantino, if only because they don't have the talent or inclination to aim that high. show more

    Nick Schager Village Voice

    Director Wayne Kramer (Running Scared, Crossing Over) makes plain his cartoon-comedy intentions early and often via comic-book-panel-style title cards. The presiding atmosphere of over-the-top zaniness, however, is of a broad, banal sort involving little people, rampant nudity, and quasi-religious nonsense. show more

    Stephen Holden The New York Times

    "Hee Haw” meets “Pulp Fiction” at the meth lab: That describes the style of Pawn Shop Chronicles, a hillbilly grindhouse yawp of a movie that belches in your face and leaves a sour stink. show more

    the main reason why i chose to watch this was to see Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead perform. I dont know what it is but i really enjoy every film that he is in and seen almost all his films. One of my favorites starring reedus is called Hello Herman. I watched it on www.hellohermanthemovie.com
