Critic Reviews of "New Town Killers"Time OutJune 12, 2009
A seemingly self-mocking jumble of sour literary, cinematic, class and genre affectations.Sunday Times (UK)June 16, 2009
The film has great visual flair, but the story is a heavy-handed slice of modern melodrama that would have made Dickens blush.Observer (UK)June 16, 2009
A series of illogical twists derails a chase movie that ends in the unfortunate metaphor of an empty box.London Evening StandardJune 16, 2009
It is tightly constructed and successfully portrays the underlying tension between Edinburgh's newly prosperous and those who never had anything and never will.Daily Express (UK)June 12, 2009
Energetic direction and a promising central performance counteract the modest budget and some less-than-convincing plot elements.Empire MagazineJune 12, 2009
Genuinely thrilling urban chase. The tension just keeps ratcheting up.Film4June 12, 2009
A film featuring free-running that makes this most bizarre of extreme pursuits appear positively pedestrian.Times (UK)June 12, 2009
The look of the film is unpolished and several of the supporting performances are poor.GuardianJune 12, 2009
Given that it's basically one big chase, there's something awfully snoozy about this latest from Richard Jobson - a sort of cut-price, Scottish-set Hostel (a mountain bothy, maybe?).Daily Telegraph (UK)June 12, 2009
This is shocking, it suggests David Fincher's The Game shot by crackheads running around with cheap DV cameras.Little White LiesJune 12, 2009
Social commentary with a video game mentality. Intriguing, if not entirely successful.Digital SpyJune 12, 2009
Tension and mystery are both constants throughout this very decent indie movie, which could have easily become a cult classic in future years if Sean's two pursuers were better handled by the script.
