      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It aims for pulpy noir thrills, but Swerve never lives up to the twisty promise of its title.

      Sheri Linden Los Angeles Times As it zigs and zags, its plot unravels rather than tightens, and its curveball of an ending is bound to leave audiences feeling as double-crossed as some of the characters. Jan 2, 2014 Full Review Alonso Duralde TheWrap You've got your duplicitous blonde, a briefcase full of money, the hapless patsy, the angry cop, the loose cannon and the speeding train. Everything's so in order that you could doze off and catch up with the plot within seconds of reawakening. Dec 8, 2013 Full Review Sara Stewart New York Post It's enjoyable enough, but low on novelty, beyond the stark beauty of the sun-bleached Outback landscape. Rated: 2/4 Dec 6, 2013 Full Review Jared Mobarak The Film Stage If you can grin and bear the fact something always comes up to replace the previous problem just solved, there is entertainment to be had. Rated: C+ Jun 21, 2016 Full Review Stephen Danay Under the Radar Swerve plays out like a down under version of No Country for Old Men, sapped of any sense of tension, logic or charm. Rated: 2/10 Sep 7, 2014 Full Review Todd Jorgenson Cinemalogue A series of winding roads lead nowhere in this low-budget Australian thriller. Dec 11, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Not enough dialogue. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Reasonable film but lost me towards the end with the twist. Not one I would bother watching again. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Quite a clever seductive movie. A bit cheeky too. Very interesting. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Movie struck me too bright (all that Australian sun) to be film noir, and while there are a couple of nice twists in the movie, I was not convinced by the characters. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member swerve is that okay moving from Australia about a guy have an accident on the highway and getting caught up with think rough cop and his wife in this Australian town. C (2013) Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Haha! Karma! Not as good as I usually find Ozzie movies. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews
