With nary a poor performance to be found and a tone that engages as much as it might cause one to shift uncomfortably in their seat, Bull is an engrossing experience. It’s not an instant genre classic but never strives to be, and in hitting such a simple goal, it, like Bull himself, somehow succeeds.

What are critics saying?
Paul Andrew Williams and Neil Maskell breathe new life into a familiar one-man-army scenario. Unrelenting, no-nonsense and hard-as-nails — just like its eponymous anti-hero.
The Film Stage by Jared Mobarak
Maskell is great in the title role.
Little White Lies by Lou Thomas
Williams and Maskell have delivered an effective, savage revenge thriller – as long as one’s expectations are moderate.
The Guardian by Peter Bradshaw
There are moments of inspiration that light up this film like flashes of lightning.
The Observer (UK) by Wendy Ide
Writer-director Paul Andrew Williams is a furiously visceral force behind the camera. His knuckleduster direction goes beyond mere muscularity and takes on the daunting persuasive power of a mob enforcer; his storytelling is both thrilling and utterly terrifying.
