      Dennis Harvey Variety "The Archer" is decently enough staged, paced, and acted, though it's never gritty or shocking enough to risk being taken as seriously as it sometimes seems to demand. Mar 14, 2017 Full Review Dan Gentile Austin Chronicle Succeeds as a gripping action flick with a bloody conclusion that will leave audiences quietly pumping their fists, Mar 13, 2017 Full Review Patrick Cavanaugh The Wolfman Cometh Both entertaining as genre fare, telling a thrilling story of survival, and in teaching teens a thing or two about the difficulties of doing what’s right. Rated: 4/5 May 12, 2023 Full Review Allen Almachar The MacGuffin As a low budget crime thriller, it's not bad - to expect anything more might be pushing it. Rated: B- Jul 17, 2020 Full Review Matt Oakes Silver Screen Riot Weiss' budget restricts The Archer's action sequences to feeling sallow and slapdash, almost sad, with wide camera angles that only serve to highlight the limitations of the production. 
 Rated: C- Nov 5, 2018 Full Review Aaron Peterson The Hollywood Outsider Anchored by Bailey Noble's breakout performance, The Archer is a lean and tense thriller that rarely lets up. Rated: 6.5/10 Oct 10, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      christopher c. m Let's start with the elephant in the room, they never explained why the girl she was protecting from being RAPED never showed for the trial, other than for the sake of plot. Also, the trail is a farce, her mother talks Lauren into waving her right to a lawyer. But waving your right to a lawyer doesn't wave your right to a trail, there was no trail. Hell even Lauren calls out how wrong that was. It's a horrible movie that makes no sense what so ever. It's a Lady Rambo meets the Hunger Games that don't work on any level. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a great lesbian, female empowerment movie, and aside from that, it's a great movie. The story line is wonderfully written, even if the premise is a little ridiculous. The biggest problems with this movie is the pervy scenes, and I'm not against them: there's just very little to pick apart. With a higher budget, this could easily be a blockbuster without losing the original story. I really enjoyed this, will watch again, and can recommend. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Great Movie, loved the actress Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member I just wasted of my time to watch this movie Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Disturbing. Reminded me a bit of The Hunger Games. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 09/20/18 Full Review Audience Member The Archer is a thrilling queer story, taking a ripped from the headlines case "cash-for-kids" and shining a light on a corrupt judicial system in support of mass incarceration of young people. Director Valerie Weiss has crafted a compelling film with young characters that engage and empower the audience. From the very first scene before The Archer can even draw back her bow we know Lauren Pierce (Bailey Noble) is a force to be reckoned with. A champion archer, Lauren after leading her team to victory retreats back to her hotel room for a night of celebratory drinking with her crush Emily. The two girls drunken exuberance turns romantic but is quickly interrupted by Emily's abusive boyfriend showing up unannounced. Violence ensues forcing Lauren to intervene in defense of Emily. Sending the boyfriend to the hospital and landing Lauren a one-way trip to Paradise Pines. Paradise Pines is a youth prison that dispenses physical and psychological abuse on a daily bassist to young girls whose crimes rage from petty theft to flipping off their math teacher. Their Lauren meets Rebecca, Jeanie Mason (FOX's So You Think You Can Dance) a rebellious prisoner who has escaped multiple times only to be caught and subjected to degrading retribution at the hands of the masochistic warden Bob Patrice, Bill Sage (AWOL) and his pervy son Michael played by Michael Grant Terry (Bones). Lauren and Rebecca must team up and make a break for it if they want to expose the facility's criminal undertakings. The Archer is an edge of your seat action thriller lesbian audiences have been waiting for. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Read all reviews
