What to Know

Critics Consensus

Although its story can feel circuitous and a bit baggy, Brooklyn 45's character-driven period horror is elevated by some excellent performances.

Randy Myers San Jose Mercury News Brooklyn 45 nails all the details, the pacing, the dialogue, the period details. Rated: 3.5/4 Jul 6, 2023 Full Review Amy Nicholson FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) I like the script a lot. In execution it's a little stagey... [But] I felt that this had some really good veers. Jun 13, 2023 Full Review John Anderson Wall Street Journal The cast has to walk a fine line, though they do behave as people might under extraordinary and extraordinarily unnerving circumstances. None is better at this than Ms. Ramsay, who executes remarkably natural acting under unnatural conditions Jun 13, 2023 Full Review Walter Chaw Film Freak Central Geoghegan's chamber horror Brooklyn 45 assembles a gallery of war dogs in the immediate aftermath of WWII to drink, tell their hoary stories of survival and the terrible things they've seen... Jan 4, 2024 Full Review Aaron Neuwirth We Live Entertainment Writer/director Ted Geoghegan manages to pack a lot of neat ideas into this 90-minute thriller. The film plays a lot into PTSD, xenophobia, and contending with one’s actions during a hostile situation that really clicked. Rated: 7/10 Aug 23, 2023 Full Review Tina Kakadelis Film Obsessive Brooklyn 45 fills every crack and crevice of its taut 92 minutes. The walls of this singular room grow to cover miles, speaking to much more than a seance gone wrong. Jul 25, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Ricardo d É um bom filme, lembra Hitchcock, com seus suspenses baseados em muitos diálogos e uma sala pequena. Temos aqui uma fotografia e direção de arte primorosos, até o fim do filme é todo trabalhado para remeter ao cinema da época. O roteiro nos dá bons diálogos, e nos faz pensar sobre muitas coisas..., mas a qualidade cai quando temos aqui um terror sobrenatural onde não convence o espectador a forma que as personagens lidam com isso. Tirando o medo de Bob, o restante lida com uma certa naturalidade e desdém. Depois, e eu acredito que seja o pior problema do filme, é que, tentando manter o suspense, a acusação nunca é realmente finalizada. Ou seja, ficamos sem realmente saber se a vizinha era ou não nazista (pelo menos não de forma concreta), e o final tomando o caminho que tomou, me faz pensar para que foi feito esse filme? Apenas para assustar, para trabalhar temas sérios, ou para manter o ódio ainda vivo nas pessoas? Mesmo a fala final ser algo pacifista, os atos não são, e dai será que o filme não acaba dando a mensagem que está tudo bem ser assim? Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/20/24 Full Review Jeffrey P More entertaining WWII-era film than Oppenheimer. Competent, coherent, and un-offensive. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 11/11/23 Full Review rob d Painfully stagey. I was initially engaged but it became so hokey that I quit caring. I love b movies and wanted to like this. Very surprised by the high score. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 11/03/23 Full Review modular m More like a psychological paranoid drama taking place in one room the whole movie. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 10/30/23 Full Review Will L 'Brooklyn 45' may not be a "big" movie, but it's a powerful one. Every actor delivers an outstanding, engaged performance that helps maintain the palpable sense of dread and paranoia from beginning to end. Ted Geoghegan's tight script gives the actors plenty to chew on while also touching on some surprisingly relevant themes without ever feeling divorced from its period setting. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 09/27/23 Full Review Steve S Just horrible. A group of people sitting in a room talking about nothing particularly engaging. A lot of tell, instead of show. We are told a lot about characters, and they babble on, sip scotch, lock the door, and they Ghostbusters special effects kick in. This movie truly was a full load of "who cares." The pacing was slow, acting passable, we were given no reason to like the characters or even care about the store. Even the lighting bothered me. I felt like I was watching a movie filmed under fluorescent lights. Watch the first 20 minutes if you must but you've been warned. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 09/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
