What to Know

Critics Consensus

All the Old Knives suffers in comparison to the dialogue-driven spy thrillers of the past, but the chemistry between its stars simmers even when the story doesn't.

Wenlei Ma News.com.au All the Old Knives is a heady cocktail of chemistry and suspense, served up in a taut package. Rated: 3/5 Apr 20, 2022 Full Review Robert Levin Newsday Shimmering visuals cannot change the reality that there's not much happening here other than people sitting in rooms and talking. Rated: 2.5/4 Apr 17, 2022 Full Review Jake Wilson The Age (Australia) Janus Metz Pedersen’s All the Old Knives is never less than watchable, but there’s a hint of absurdity in its willed gravitas. Rated: 2.5/5 Apr 15, 2022 Full Review Lee Zumpe Tampa Bay Newspapers Although the film may not achieve the absorbing slow-burn thriller status to which it aspires, it’s still better than a cut-and-paste pastiche. Oct 31, 2023 Full Review Zach Pope Zach Pope Reviews Executed in a less than dull way. Film gets better as it goes on but is really only elevated from the two main performances. Jul 25, 2023 Full Review Pramit Chatterjee Digital Mafia Talkies All the Old Knives is such a good movie that it makes me sad. I say “sad” because we’re living in a time when a movie like this isn’t getting a theatrical release and has been relegated to a digital release. Rated: 4/5 Jul 20, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Cynthia it was a great movie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/11/22 Full Review Frank It’s a good movie but nothing amazing seen the kind of story before Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/10/22 Full Review Chris H As with many modern films, this was so convoluted that it was impossible for me to follow. I was expecting a thriller and got a boring, dud that suddenly ended. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/10/22 Full Review M Plot was eh but it was entertaining..a little slow. Not great chemistry between the leads Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/10/22 Full Review Honest V The typical fiction of a Fox News audience. Hilarious to even think that any of the so "terrorist groups" are related to each other, or even that "Tehran" is the one these groups go to. Yes, fiction but still a laughable matter. Olen Steinhauer, along with Jauns Metz, who didn't even bother to do a simple Google search on the topic, are Islamophobes who thinks Muslims just meet at the mosque to plan their next terrorist attack. Terrible movie. Highly won't recommend. Waste of time. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 07/17/24 Full Review David C Intriguing well made film. For those people who under rate this type of film only because it doesn’t suit their simplistic taste for fast cars, action etc you should be banned from being a critic. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/06/24 Full Review Read all reviews
