      Kyle S This film was excellent! Jake Gyllenhaal's acting in it was awesome, a silent creepy guy trying to do his job no matter what it takes. I really enjoyed the story, I thought it was very entertaining and easy to follow. I also love that the movie takes us through the streets of Los Angeles, Really cool perspective of the city. Go see it if you have not already! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/18/24 Full Review Adam B I absolutely loved this movie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/14/24 Full Review Matt M Not bad! Interesting concept. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/07/24 Full Review Barış Ä I feel like there's a story there, but it's really just... there. I think it's ok but definitely overrated. Also hot take: Literally anyone could have played Jake Gyllenhaal's role in this film. His acting is mid at best and Riz Ahmed carried the movie. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/04/24 Full Review Dani G This movie flew under the radar, but to me, it was one of the best from 2014. One of the best movies, one of the best screenplays, and one of the best acting performances of the year. In fact, I think it's the best acting by Jake Gyllenhaal in his career. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/29/24 Full Review Mortal An low-budget film with a great main character! Is one of these movies that keeps your attention pretty much nailed to the screen. On of Gylenhal's best! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/29/24 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Shadow and Act Staff Shadow and Act Although I was able to put aside my knowledge that nothing occurring in this film would happen in reality, there are moments in the film where I was pulled out of it... Sep 13, 2022 Full Review Dwight Brown National Newspaper Publishers Association Intriguing, unnerving and haunting. Mar 7, 2017 Full Review Emily St. James Vox Nightcrawler, on its surface, is a relatively straightforward thriller, built around a slightly improbable but very effective main character, a man who starts as an antihero and plunges straight ahead toward villainy. Sep 26, 2016 Full Review John Flickinger The Flick Pick (Youtube) Indulge in the enigmatic charm of Gyllenhaal portraying an oddly likable sociopath, coupled with dark humor and a riveting yet straightforward plot. Nightcrawler isn't just a movie; it's a gift you give yourself, with a runtime that flies by. Mar 25, 2024 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies It’s such a creepy, tense, and efficient crime/psychological thriller. Rated: 4/5 Aug 24, 2022 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Beneath Nightcrawler’s outward critique of the media’s desperate need to see and record human atrocity for mass ratings, there’s a more disturbing character study about Gyllenhaal’s fascinating and fantastically played psychopath. Rated: 4/4 Jul 18, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
