WHERE TO WATCH:

CRITICS RATING:

1/5 Stars

WHAT IT'S ABOUT:

A thrilling and pertinent drama. A 17-year-old uses her wits, survival skills, to fight for her life, and her classmates, against a group of live-streaming school shooters.

WHAT THE CRITICS THOUGHT:

The film has no psychological depth beyond offering up the occasional cliché - one of the shooters was bullied at school, for instance. - Deborah Ross, The Spectator

It often feels like an insanely poor-taste experiment. - Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph (UK)

"What would you do?" the film tastelessly needles its viewers throughout, presenting the brawniest, most impossible answer all the while. - Guy Lodge, Variety

What's most notable about Kyle Rankin's slick and compulsively watchable genre entry Run Hide Fight is the utter shallowness of its psychological perspective. - David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
