Critic Reviews of "The Violators"Time OutJune 13, 2016
The film's strengths lie in its sense of authenticity.Times (UK)October 10, 2016
A powerful debut from the writer-director Helen Walsh.HeyUGuysJune 20, 2016
This dark slice of contemporary British drama deserves some serious attention.CineVueJune 18, 2016
A frank, slow-burning and gritty realist film that will leave audiences seething.The Arts DeskJune 17, 2016
Six months into the year it's time to start thinking about the best films of 2016, and The Violators is comfortably up there.Independent (UK)June 17, 2016
The plotting becomes increasingly contrived and the final reel revelations don't ring true.Little White LiesJune 17, 2016
An unfocused and overly convenient story, but there are some glimmers of promise.Radio TimesJune 16, 2016
The young leads are excellent ... as is first-time cinematographer Tobin Jones, who eschews the grimy greys of traditional northern realism to capture the everyday locales in plangently living colour.GuardianJune 16, 2016
It's flawed by a slightly unconvincing and anticlimactic gun-related ending, but well acted, forthright and confident in the universe it creates.Film ExperienceMay 13, 2016
The Violators doesn't break any new ground in its depiction of the downtrodden... but the actresses are finds who may have bright futures and it's sensitively directed by first time filmmaker Helen Walsh.Cleveland Plain DealerApril 08, 2016
There are no easy answers in Walsh's heartbreaking look at life in Britain's lower class... In sharp contrast to Shelly's bleak life, Walsh's powerful coming-of-age tale is beautifully, dreamily shot.
