Movie Reviews

Cine Premiere - 10/10 by Alejandro Murillo Captures perfectly and expands on the colorful but pessimist junkie pop lover style set by Fight Club and Trainspotting in a modern time. [Full review in Spanish]
The Hollywood Reporter - 8/10 by Stephen Dalton Baird can be forgiven for a handful of careless and ham-fisted touches. Filth is still a hugely entertaining breath of foul air fueled by McAvoy’s impressively ugly star performance.
Rolling Stone - 8/10 by Peter Travers Even when the film falls to pieces, McAvoy's bonkers brilliance will blow you away.
Laramie Movie Scope - 8/10 by Robert Roten This is one of those movies where much of the non-Scottish audience would need subtitles and a Scottish slang dictionary. It is brimming with profanity and explicit sex scenes and an amazing performance by James McAvoy.
The Telegraph - 8/10 by Robbie Collin I loved every minute of Filth, and couldn’t have stomached another second of it.
Time Out London - 8/10 by Dave Calhoun This punky adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s novel Filth is a glossary of grimness, a dictionary of darkness. But it also dishes up humour that’s blacker than a winter’s night in the Highlands and unpolished anarchy that’s true to Welsh’s out-there, frighteningly frank prose.
Empire - 8/10 by Damon Wise A bulked-up James McAvoy dominates the screen in this razor-sharp Glasgow smile of a black comedy, packed with aberrant sex, hard drugs and maximum David Soul.
Time - 8/10 by Richard Corliss This one starts at the level of lunacy and keeps on escalating. Next to Filth, "Trainspotting" looks as sedate as "The Polar Express."
Total Film - 8/10 by James Mottram With McAvoy acting as if his life depends on it, Filth is the Irvine Welsh film we’ve been waiting years for. Tastier than a deep-fried Mars Bar.
New York Post - 8/10 by Kyle Smith Writer-director Jon S. Baird has devilish fun with the hilarious black-comic elements of Irvine Welsh’s novel, but the incessant bad behavior does get a wee bit monotonous, and the twist ending is disappointingly pat.
McClatchy-Tribune News Service - 8/10 by Roger Moore James McAvoy wallows in it in his new film, Filth. He embraces the sexual depravity, the drug and alcohol abuse, the bullying, vile language, racism and rank sexism of being a Scottish cop on the loose.
Variety - 7/10 by Guy Lodge Powered by a vigorous, image-shedding lead turn from James McAvoy as a coked-up Edinburgh detective on the fast track to either promotion or self-implosion, this descent into Scotch-marinated madness begins as ugly comedy, segues almost imperceptibly into farcical tragedy, and inevitably — perhaps intentionally — loses control in the process.
