      Jason W Excellent little movie. My wife and I liked it a lot. Definitely gets you thinking about what you would do in that situation Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/10/24 Full Review A.L.Jude P Outstanding thriller made to perfection. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/17/23 Full Review Tanya W Had me captured right from the beginning and never dropped the ball. This film balanced a tight rope and never went too far on the violence, remaining a thriller, safe enough to watch for the audience, but never letting go of the questions we've all pondered on what we'd do if we got hold of a killer. Excellent writing, believable performances. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/05/23 Full Review Justine d Gripping, on the edge of your seat stuff. The Cost may be a low budget Aussie film, but it takes a dominant hold of you from start to finish. The script is tight and lean with no fat on it. The camera work is superb - haunting and mysterious. The characters have been crafted exquisitely to the point where you're questioning your own ethical limits. A must-see film for 2023. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/28/23 Full Review Abigail C Ace film with great acting and captivating plot! Addressed real issues of morality, revenge and justice over a beautiful Aussie backdrop. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/26/23 Full Review Damen S The movie is great. It takes you on an emotional roller-coaster from start to finish. The performances by the cast are powerful, the story is awesome and well written and the score is fantastic as well. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      David Stratton The Australian The Cost, a low budget Australian revenge thriller directed by Matthew Holmes, would be more effective if it were less brutal. Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 6, 2023 Full Review Simon Foster Screen-Space This superbly acted, compellingly staged study in vigilante psychology will be too grey-shaded for some, who may interpret the narrative trajectory as a pro-argument for personal justice; others [will] will lap up scenes of brutal payback. Rated: 3.5/5 Nov 22, 2023 Full Review Jim Schembri jimschembri.com An outstanding small-scale thriller that grabs you by the throat from the get-go and never lets go, tightening its grip as a seemingly straightforward situation gets ever more complicated...Performances throughout are totally convincing. Rated: 4/5 Oct 13, 2023 Full Review Matthew Pejkovic Matt's Movie Reviews An intense story of revenge told with stark, intimate filmmaking and powerful performances. Rated: 4/5 Oct 12, 2023 Full Review Lisa Nystrom FILMINK (Australia) Unsettling, brutal, and provocative … Rated: 15/20 Oct 10, 2023 Full Review David Griffiths Subculture Entertainment The fact that the film looks and feels so natural makes it one of the best crime thrillers of the year.
