      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Dog Eat Dog's refreshing bundle of quirks and surfeit of visual style aren't quite enough to compensate for an aimlessly forgettable story.

      Donald Clarke Irish Times It's sort of terrible. It's sort of terrific. It's never boring. Rated: 3/5 Dec 1, 2016 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) A crassly nihilistic crime movie that is brought to you by the veteran director Paul Schrader and the often dazzling lead actors Nicolas Cage and Willem Dafoe, Dog Eat Dog is a waste of their talents. Rated: 2/5 Nov 17, 2016 Full Review Geoffrey Macnab Independent (UK) Schrader won't win any awards for Dog Eat Dog but it certainly qualifies as a guilty pleasure. Dafoe and Cage enjoy themselves hugely as the low-grade, "nickel-and-dime" career criminals dreaming of the payday that will never come. Rated: 3/5 Nov 17, 2016 Full Review Jaime Grijalba Vague Visages The majority of people will call this movie disjointed, amateurish and uneven… and honestly, it’s all that and more. But that doesn’t mean it’s a bad film. The bold decisions make Dog Eat Dog one of the most impressive looking mainstream films out there. Dec 1, 2023 Full Review Kip Mooney Fresh Fiction The whole movie is the textbook definition of 'trying too hard.' Rated: 1/5 Aug 10, 2021 Full Review Katie Hogan VultureHound Cage's character is matter of fact and just wants things to get done, gives the film a pace and a somewhat useful insight. But ultimately, the film has a mean streak too thick to appreciate more. Rated: 2/5 Feb 4, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Cristian s Simpática, una de esas películas diferentes que tratan de mostrarte el mundo desde un punto de vista criminal y pesimista. Bastante artística, sin grandes efectos pero con un buen ritmo y giros argumentales. Tiene algo que es fundamental y que puede ser o muy bueno o muy malo según quien lo mire: se apoya demasiado en el gran elenco de actores que tiene. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/24 Full Review SpookySkeleton M Great movie, gets a lot of hate for no reason. The story keeps you interested the whole time, it gets very crazy too. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/24/24 Full Review Nichols J If I knew upfront it was a film taking an "artsy" approach to a trite cliche'd genre I may have appreciated it more. But, I was still looking for a cohesive storyline which made the beginning and the end somewhat confusing. But, in every other way it delivered what I thought it would and better than most. I hope this review helps anyone watching it to enjoy it for being atypical. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 07/31/23 Full Review eduardosuarez I think I'm done watching movies by "celebrated" directors. I know Schrader wrote Taxi Driver, and helped write Raging Bull and Bringing Out The Dead. It seems like he might be best at writing original screenplays or coming up with ideas that are ultimately handled by someone else, like Scorsese. Schrader is like George Lucas to Spielberg. I tried to watch Affliction, another of Schrader's writer/director credits, and it was just as boring and disjointed as this film. This has been more a critique of Schrader than this film, so here's the review: don't bother. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 10/21/22 Full Review Audience Member Are there any movies where Dafoe is not a complete freak? Paul Schrader is milking a stone in this work, we have a lot of cool and creative takes, but it looks like we have an episode of a TV show rather than a movie. Everything is rushed and poorly explained and what was meant to impact ends up being just more unnecessary violence because we have no connections with the characters and their stories. The performances are good but they don't save the film from mediocrity. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member You have to observe all details to understand the end. It's a dark and bloody comedy,3 Excons, committing errors, and Cage , a tormented soul ,looking for redemption at the end of the road Personal opinión, this movie is not for everyone. You see the story through the sick and dirty minds of drugsadicct, insane men. Despite the neg critics, I found this movie very interesting, similar to Pulp stories. And Defoe is terrific!
