      Nick Allen RogerEbert.com Karen can only pat itself on the back for making a movie about the tyranny of a Karen, but it doesn't bring any critical thinking to its own conversation. Rated: 0/4 Sep 3, 2021 Full Review Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times "Karen" is a fictional tale about one of the worst people on the planet, and it's also one of the worst movies of 2021. Rated: 1/4 Sep 3, 2021 Full Review Michael Nordine Variety From the title to nearly every narrative beat, writer-director Coke Daniels' satirical thriller offers little in the way of incisive social commentary or thrills. Sep 2, 2021 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies You can’t miss its bludgeoning message which is nailed into every scene. You also can’t miss the complete lack of inspired storytelling, the astonishingly bad dialogue, or characters so poorly conceived that it’s impossible to connect with them. Rated: 0.5/5 Aug 17, 2022 Full Review Jordan Elizabeth Common Sense Media Karen is a kitschy representation of a very real threat: White women who are aware of their Whiteness and weaponize it. Rated: 2/5 Sep 28, 2021 Full Review Stephen Silver Splice Today What Jordan Peele's Get Out would've been like if it hadn't included any cinematic mastery or storytelling subtlety Rated: 1/5 Sep 17, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member This movie was given a bad review? Why? Acting was good story was great. Why such a low score? Anatomy of a fall had a terrible ending and won an Oscar. Don’t be so triggered and understand the meaning of the movie. Obviously over the top but with purpose. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/01/24 Full Review Nicole Y Dreadful and ridiculous. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/24 Full Review Rashida W Poor acting and lack of storytelling Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/02/24 Full Review Stoner J Just terrible. The acting is the worst I've ever seen, by the whole cast. And it was done terribly all around. Seems like they were going for a reverse Lakeview Terrace but this can't get anywhere near as that. And this one is beyond low budget seems less than a tv movie! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/19/23 Full Review Summer F I personally enjoyed watching this movie. The actors and story plot was realistic and thought out. I read a few other critics and reviews and I found that most did not see the movie as fitting, however I feel that is because the movie revealed the truth. These are real life examples that has happened to people of color. This behavior has been happening since the beginning of migration. See when you show other cultures of people that are not fond of people of color and then add it to television or movies, they see themselves and criticize it immediately. In hindsight, they know the truth. They can clearly see the unethical acts and tactics that are brainwashed in the law-enforcement, and in the community of non-colored people. Of course if you show a group of people that act like this, their not going to like it. Man or Women in the mirror. It's not that people of color feel the need to protest and speak on the issues all of the time to just do it. We speak on it because some refuse to adjust, be civil and kind to all of mankind. It is so sad that some humans are so brainwashed and have hatred towards others. I say review your history and learn where you really come from. You may be surprised! 😁 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/15/23 Full Review Al C The movie was pretty predictable and not much of a story to tell. I will give Taryn Manning credit as I thought she was an absolutely Perfect Karen. She was a little scary to watch. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 11/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews
