The Film Stage by

Director Martin Koolhoven shows the heaviest of hands in approaching the story.


The Guardian by Andrew Pulver

Brimstone is hampered somewhat by its ponderous, doom-laden pace, and resultant bloated running time, but remains an intriguing slant on the spaghetti western.


IndieWire by David Ehrlich

If, for all of its godawful men, “Brimstone” has a hard time sewing its feminist fervor into anything more than a thin shawl over its bleak spectacle, this disturbingly watchable religious Western makes a solid case that hell is a place on Earth.


The Playlist by Jessica Kiang

In a way it’s a shame that film builds backwards, because while it adds layers of tricksy narrative intrigue, that trajectory somewhat simplifies the thematic texture as the movie wears on.


CineVue by John Bleasdale

Dark, lurid, sadistic and powerful, it is at the least a fascinating and bold debut, and promises better to come.


Variety by Owen Gleiberman

The film has gruesomely effective moments, and one at times gets caught up in the gears of its big interlocked narrative, but it also has serious longueurs.


Movie Nation by Roger Moore

This grimly unpleasant two and a half hour endurance contest is an almost unwatchable, frustrating smorgasbord of blood, guts and gore.
