Critic Reviews of "Papillon (2017)"RogerEbert.comAugust 24, 2018
I could never quite figure out why this story was being told again, and I drifted away from its action way too often.Globe and MailAugust 24, 2018
As director Michael Noer struggles to tease a theme out of a string of exploits, Papillon remains as entertaining as ever.Los Angeles TimesAugust 23, 2018
The end result feels routinely anonymous.Chicago Sun-TimesAugust 23, 2018
It is an impressively staged and appropriately rain-soaked, mud-splattered, bone-crunching tale, more violent and filled with rougher language than its predecessor, if not quite as powerful or moving.Toronto StarAugust 23, 2018
Director Michael Noer falls short in a number of ways, leaving a sense of missed opportunity.Wall Street JournalAugust 23, 2018
Mr. Hunnam plays Papillon with a certain fierceness and swagger, but his psyche is largely impenetrable.Film InquirySeptember 07, 2018
By trying to remain indebted to a movie which already worked quite well on its own, and not trying to modernize or otherwise change the events therein, the film becomes overshadowed by its predecessor.The Straits Times (Singapore)September 05, 2018
Malek makes a fine, low-key effort as the buddy who turns Papillon into a better man, but Hoffman is an impossible act to follow.Hindustan TimesAugust 30, 2018
Unrelentingly grim throughout its 130-minute runtime, Papillon is an exhausting experience.FilmfareAugust 30, 2018
While you do feel the pathos, it doesn't quite give you the intended catharsis. It's still a cracking adventure yarn and those who haven't seen the 1973 original should definitely go for it.Crooked MarqueeAugust 29, 2018
A few minutes longer than the original yet feels shorter, more efficient, more engaging, with a screenplay that brings out the relationship at the story's heart.The Young FolksAugust 28, 2018
Papillon has the scale and most of the technical details to make for a compelling prestige drama, but it's ultimately sunk by the numerous holes it has in its structure.
