Brian Tallerico In Kurt Sutter fashion, it's downright Shakespearian in its tale of familial vengeance. Apr 29, 2020 Full Review Will Ashton The Playlist [A] restless, flashy and ultimately unpleasant bore, one that spends more time finding its voice than telling a coherent, engaging story. Rated: C Apr 29, 2020 Full Review Emilie Black Cinema Crazed ... a study in misery, unhappiness, bad luck, and desperation that succeeds in putting its viewers in a similar mood, this reaching its goals with gusto. Rated: 4/5 Apr 19, 2020 Full Review Patrick King Cultured Vultures Let me Make You a Martyr is a rough movie experience, but ultimately it's quite rewarding, even uplifting. You just have to make it to the end. Oct 10, 2019 Full Review Alex Arabian Film Inquiry By the end of Let Me Make You A Martyr, viewers will be antsy for the drawn-out story to finish so that they can leave this suffocating, vapid world.

Audience Member This story is so hard to follow. I saw it on its opening night at the Circle Cinema in Tulsa. The visuals and music choices aren't bad, but upon viewing the first scene of the movie, it becomes instantly clear that this film was created with very little attention to detail. The audience is submerged into an opening that relentlessly insists badassery with overly intense music, gunfire, and a house invasion. The protagonist is extremely bland. It feels like we weren't even given a moment to get to know the guy until nearly the end of the movie; not to say that any other character gains the audience's interest in the least bit; they are all extremely shallow. Female characters are a completely different can of worms. I found it both taxing and offensive to watch every single female character conveyed as helpless, weak, defenseless, dependent, and sexually objectified. Even the child, who was used as a not-very-clever symbol of innocence, was sexualized through the whole film. Marilyn Manson as shorter screen time than anyone else in the movie. Kinda like the directors just decided to throw him in the film but didn't have any unfilled roles, so they compromised the whole story just to have his face in it. The characters do not speak loud enough to understand what the hell is going on, the acting is atrocious, and everything comes across as a compilation of movie tropes. This movie was forcing intensity into every scene possible, being quite honestly draining for the viewer. It closes with the same uncomfortable confusion that introduced the film. It was oddly fitting. Nevertheless, nonsense. I reccomend to only watch this film on Bad Movie Night. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member The movie is about facing your life and death. Facing the "gatekeeper". It is extsestential. The only characters that mattered were the man and interviewer. Manson also represented something, death comes. How will you respond to.the gate keeper when it is your time? With honesty or accolades? Ego? Pride? Will you confess your deepest sins? Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member It was a movie that had all the right ingredients: revenge, drugs, murders, trailer trash, gangsters, etc. Yet the plot left too many unanswered questions re the big picture (the surrounding events and what led to all this) hence that was a disappointment. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member While the thought was nice, the movie really just has you waiting for something riveting to happen, and before you know it, its over. Its a good plot wasted on poor writing. Not to mention that Manson's role as Pope, as good as it was, is barely in the film. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review andrei d Vrea sa fie destept dar nu reuseste Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member 2.4/5 Let Me Make You A Martyr dis a mess in almost every sense: it doesnt know how to tell its story, characters and relationships are poorly developed, and most importantly, it only barely uses Marilyn Manson in the film, suggesting the project was dead since its inception and they only wanted to make it barely cult worthy.
