What Criticker Users Are Saying...
Obdurate - "When I took the night to think about it I realized I liked it more than I thought I did. It does what it sets out to do; it's a tense, intelligent thriller with great performances from those involved, specifically director Edgerton who manages to make a slightly menacing character with a warm, inviting face. A bunch of twists and turns, handles "bullying" in a slightly meh way, but the ending is haunting and disturbing as it should be after the build-up." - 85
duders14 - "The Gift is one of the best movie I have seen so far this year which is a huge accomplishment for Joel Edgerton considering this is his directorial debut. There is some great action from the main cast and some excellent writing from Edgerton as well. Cue the twists!" - 85
