    Associated Press

    The less you know about this movie before seeing it -- and you really should see it -- the better.

    New Yorker
    April 15, 2013

    Cronenberg's direction, mirroring the split in Tom, is alternately measured and frighteningly explosive, and, as always, he gives the movie a nasty underlay of sexual perversity.

    Wall Street Journal
    April 15, 2013

    This peculiarly predictable picture has been calculated, or miscalculated, to set up certain expectations, fulfill them, and then do the same thing again, thereby giving us a chance to see what's coming and, at least in theory, be shocked.

    New York Magazine/Vulture
    May 12, 2006

    A remarkably convincing examination of heroism, hero worship, and the seductive allure of villainy.
    October 07, 2005

    The film, based on a graphic novel, has a crackling sense of visual tension.

    Atlanta Journal-Constitution
    October 02, 2005

    A model of clean, lean storytelling.

    Hopefully [it will] encourage a sobering sense of responsibility and a more truthful perspective on identities (individual and national).

    Lyles' Movie Files
    October 04, 2013

    A fascinating exercise in cinematic restraint resulting in a captivating, not to be missed film.

    Empire Magazine Australasia
    November 07, 2012

    With A History Of Violence, Cronenberg uses the pulp gangster genre - as opposed to, say, sci-fi horror -- to draw us into a dialogue on our relationship as voyeurs to violence, both real and cinematic.

    Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
    April 20, 2011

    Without conceding any of his iconoclastic vision, Cronenberg has turned a genre film with classic Western overtones into a gripping psychological drama that examines the duality of man and his infatuation with the art of violence.

    While it weakens in its final stretch...A History of Violence succeeds enormously thanks to the strength of its direction and performances.

    Cinema Crazed
    June 23, 2010

    A truly entertaining and engrossing study of violence, family, and our pasts eventually coming back to haunt us...
