Critic Reviews

Liked
The shattering downbeat ending is well earned and genuinely shocking.
— Nigel Floyd (Time Out London)
Didn't Like
Eden Lake has the trappings of a low-IQ thriller but it's really a contemptible tract feeding the prejudices of the U.K.'s rightwing tabloids that claim the country is overrun by teenagers wielding knives.
— Ray Bennett (The Hollywood Reporter)
