    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Wood, for her part, can appear sad, or seductive, or mysterious, or happy, or lovestruck, or deeply troubled. Gabi is also very good with a gun, so look out. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    We could have lived without another ’90s-influenced exercise in gritty wonderment. But thanks to a perfectly-matched lead, Shia LaBeouf, the movie makes enough impact to justify its existence. show more

    Justin Lowe The Hollywood Reporter

    Fredrik Bond makes a promising feature debut with this fanciful crime-drama romance that gratifyingly eschews strict genre classification. show more

    A pastiche of bad film cliches and scenes devoid of any real conflict or character development. show more

    Roger Moore McClatchy-Tribune News Service

    Bruce Ingram Chicago Sun-Times

    Nick McCarthy Slant Magazine

    Every now and then, one comes across an indie film that's so showily awful, so drenched in bathos and cliché, and yet features such a uniformly sharp cast that you have to wonder: "What is it with actors?" Or, if one already knows what it is with actors, "Did this material actually look good on paper?" The heavy-sigh-inducing Charlie Countryman is just such a motion picture. show more

    The result is the most idiotic excess of sex and bloodshed since "Only God Forgives." show more

    Damon Wise Empire

    A caper thriller that's sufficiently zippy to hold the attention. LaBeouf's current notoriety adds extra piquancy to those urban fight scenes. show more
