Who Killed Bambi?

What to Know

Critics Consensus

Who Killed Bambi? squanders its suspenseful setup on a clunky and contrived thriller populated by poorly written characters.

Empire Magazine Rated: 2/5 Apr 1, 2006 Full Review Moira MacDonald Seattle Times Competent but ultimately disappointing. Rated: 2/4 Jan 14, 2005 Full Review Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle Who Killed Bambi? does for doctors what Psycho did for showers. Rated: 3/4 Dec 3, 2004 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews The melodrama acts as an anaesthetic, as it's hard to stay awake while it operates merely as a gruesome style over substance film. Rated: C Apr 28, 2007 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall A sleek and cool thriller that never quite boils over into all-out suspense, which feels enticing but also a bit dull and overlong. Rated: 3.5/5 Jun 28, 2005 Full Review Frank Swietek One Guy's Opinion Its lack of sense is exceeded only by the absence of chills. Rated: C- Jan 25, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member (***): [img][/img] I was intrigued throughout, even though the movie falters at the end. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member It starts out somewhat interesting, and remains so from a psychological standpoint, but degenerates into a nonsensical mess plot-wise. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Modern Day Thriller. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Fabulous mix of Drama and Suspense Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member A great thriller with a menacing atmosphere . Beautifully shot, directed with ambition and very well acted. A French cross over between Hitchcock and Lynch. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member The trailer looks cool, but once again, the film itself isn't. Apparently slow & over-long like every other French movie does, whereas mood always overwhelms rationality; in addition to Sophie Quinton's shallow acting. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
