      Hunter C Rory hot as always did great in this movie aswell as Luke Evans i follow along with both and honestly thought the movie was just good (i've watched it around 30 times since it came out) Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/07/24 Full Review Angel S Slow, boring .. expected much more .. the end itself is a setback Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/04/24 Full Review James M The story and acting were magnificent! Well done and fantastic ending. Love when a movie hits home and makes you think. One of the few movies I want to watch again. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/26/24 Full Review A.L.Jude P Predictable and not original. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/23/24 Full Review marlene d Loved it! So deep and moving and beautifully shot! It had 4 intertwining stories so it was a bit like Babel in that way. Really good work!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/19/24 Full Review Jennifer F "5lbs of Pressure" is a gripping, thought provoking film that delves deeply into the complexities of the human condition. The narrative brilliantly blurs the lines between justice, impulse, and morality with stellar performances and exquisite, atmospheric cinematography. As a native New Yorker, I felt a deep visceral connection to the setting and story line, as the characters authentically capture the struggle to balance their internal grit and grace. This is a must see! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/18/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Dennis Harvey Variety Named after the lethal force behind a handgun’s trigger release, “5lbs” weaves an engaging-enough web of misunderstandings, grudges and doomed trajectories amongst various shady types. Mar 6, 2024 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Common Sense Media This ambitious multi-character crime drama with strong messages about the nature of violence often bites off more than it can chew, but enough of it works to make it worth watching. Rated: 3/5 Mar 29, 2024 Full Review Matt Glasby Radio Times It's well made and earnestly acted, but the tough talk doesn't convince, and the characters are too selfish to fully earn our sympathy. Rated: 2/5 Mar 27, 2024 Full Review Carla Hay Culture Mix 5Lbs of Pressure tries to be a gritty and realistic crime drama with multiple storylines converging. But the clumsy handling of the plot and the vapid dialogue result in an unappealing mush of a movie that lacks suspense. Mar 25, 2024 Full Review Julian Roman MovieWeb Luke Evans shines in a powerful performance alongside the excellent Rory Culkin and Alex Pettyfer in this emotionally resonant crime drama. Rated: 2.5/5 Mar 14, 2024 Full Review Gary M. Kramer MovieJawn Allocco takes too long to set up the storylines about second chances and none of them hold any surprises. Nor do the characters ever come to life. Mar 8, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
