Slant Magazine
Not much happens in The Victim, but the events that do manage to transpire consistently support a reading of the film as an older man's fantasy of virility. Full Review
Jeannette Catsoulis
The New York Times
Told with multiple flashbacks and minimal taste, this exuberantly scuzzy thriller - shot in less than two weeks with a budget as micro as the women's skirts - pits sleazy cops against fun-loving disrobers in the middle of scraggly foliage. Full Review
Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News
This is the kind of junky, hard-to-watch thriller that apologists claim is part of a long line of tough, grindhouse-style thrillers, but which is actually just amateurish gristle. Full Review
Kyle Smith
New York Post
Biehn has appeared in dozens of B-movies and evidently had no greater ambition than to come up with a grindhouse movie full of sex, gore and cheap thrills, but there is far too little of any of these to maintain interest in a straight-on story that reserves its only surprise for the final 30 seconds. Full Review
Nick Pinkerton
Village Voice
It is dreary to envisage the viewer who could become emotionally involved in The Victim, but it does have the kind of slack watchability - lugubrious driving scenes and girl-talk flashbacks pad the movie toward feature length - that make for good late-night TV. Full Review
