      Clarisse Loughrey Independent (UK) Every point the film wants to make has to be roared via lengthy speeches and declarations made straight down the lens. Any deeper meaning becomes lost. When the fires finally subside, there's not that much to be found in the ashes. Rated: 3/5 Dec 3, 2018 Full Review Mark Kermode Kermode & Mayo's Film Review Gleeful... I turned to myself and went, "wow." Nov 27, 2018 Full Review Ed Potton Times (UK) Here it is, the definitive movie for the Donald Trump era. Like Trump, it's crass, disturbing and devoid of subtext. Unlike him, it has style, self-awareness and a sense of humour. Rated: 4/5 Nov 27, 2018 Full Review Serena Seghedoni Loud and Clear Reviews Assassination Nation is Sam Levinson’s modern-day take on the Salem Witch Trials, and a “movie for absolutely right now” that you won’t be able to forget. Rated: 4/5 Aug 13, 2023 Full Review Cory Woodroof 615 Film If Joker, Euphoria, Kill Bill and The Purge did the same TikTok dance, but Sam Levinson was the one who came up with the moves…yeah. Feb 2, 2023 Full Review Michael Cuby them. All of the central four characters deliver captivating performances. Nov 2, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Pat G Interesting premise, poor execution, especially after a few years. Characters are shallow tropes at best, and the movie quickly decays into a bunch of stereotypes hamhandedly crashing into each other. If you think this is representative of America it’s probably time to unplug your phone or TV and go talk to your neighbors. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 06/15/24 Full Review KerryWhite's S Rating: 5/10. 58/100 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/29/24 Full Review Gorptholemew T 🍀 5.9/10 GUYS THEY GOT GHE INFINITE AMMO HACK FROM HERSHEL. Assassination nation is hard for me to place part of it does make me think but I also just don't understand it maybe it's cause I'm not big with that much social media and I've been homeschooled so if anything I was sheltered to whatever concept this movie is trying to get across doesn't relate to me but that's more of a me problem and I'm a guy so I don't understand but it was also written and directed by a guy which I kind find odd. Although getting into some good stuff, I did like the characters chemistry was good I feel like we don't get too much time with the main 4 characters interacting altogether witch kind of bugs me because I would've liked to see more of there interactions but what we do have is fun. Also Bill Skarsgård barely in it BOOOOO. Grade B- Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/10/24 Full Review Audience Member What would happen if our private conversations were publicly known to everyone, everywhere? If somehow one person managed to expose everyones secrets and hidden truths Would people suddenly lose their minds and go all native on each other? A large cast of unknowns the only recognizable star here is Bella Thorne Lily lives in the town of Salem; everything for her and her friends devolves into chaos after a computer hacker leaks personal information and messages about all the residents placing the blame on her The townsfolk then goes on a witch-hunt if you will targeting Lily (she’s also been secretly messaging an older anonymous user unaware of his true identity) Director Sam Levinson opens up about our world dominated by texting, postings, selfies, and Internet chats He applies his style with a satirical edge making it a fresh, modern take on the genre Think ‘Heathers’ meets ‘The Purge’ full of homophobia, blood, violence, sexual content, revenge, and toxic masculinity to name a few things It’s foul mouthed, socially relevant, gory, and at times fun Sure the characters are thinly written and it might be too stylish or frenetic for most But the result is still very energetic being a product of the Trump era with enough self-awareness and a sense of humor Does anyone want the real you?, do we stop telling the truth altogether?, some only want bits and pieces of us not the whole thing, the world watches and waits until we screw up, we can’t look away from the depiction of vapid 21st century life and macabre view of modern society, nobody is flawless because it only takes 1 person to say otherwise, righteousness and hypocrisy are probably this nation’s sickness This is definitely a modern take on the Salem Witch Trials for the digital age taking jabs at the patriarchy as well as expectations placed upon young women No doubt this captures modern realities of social media along with mass hysteria Couldn’t be more timely and relevant for the present day youth Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/21/23 Full Review Alex C Loved it, interesting view on social media. Acting was brilliant, very believable. Slow in parts but last act was great, violence and gore were well done. I wish the ending part could of had more action but overall very good film. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/17/23 Full Review prawnda s it tries entirely too hard to be edgy, and while it does often approach social issues in a relevant manner, it escalates too quickly and in too disorganized of a manner. it's very accurate in a metaphorical sense in that people don't know how to act and will form a mob very easily just via pretending they know what's going on and being supported by people around them. still, it's not believable that people would assume all traffic coming from one address was from only one member of the household, especially someone who was one of the first people to have their data shared. many violent or "triggering" scenes are deliberately drawn out, there's quite a bit too much repetitive screaming, and the whole story comes off as much more toxic and shallow than it could have been. imo there should be much more emphasis on how some of these parents forced their kids into violent situations because of their conservative belief systems.
