      Rick D Strangely captivating story that takes a while to begin to grasp, but worth the wait. Has a "What the hell could possibly happen next?" aspect, with a bleak, desolate atmosphere, both visually and plot-wise. Not your run-of-the-mill mystery or crime story. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/25/24 Full Review Kev H Simply wasn't a very good movie. Flat. We've seen it all before and much better executed. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 07/09/23 Full Review Jake M It's about a guy who reads a book about a guy who doesn't do anything. It's brilliant. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/26/23 Full Review Peter W Overall, this film delivers a solid combination of thrills and dark comedy.  The leading performance from Michael Smiley brings a certain strength on-screen, and actress Annes Elwy is equally enjoyable and likeable. The Toll is certainly thrilling, wacky, twisty, and highly entertaining. Granted, it is a story that won't make a deal of sense at first, but those who stick with it will find it enriching as certain elements come together to deliver a solid finale. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/29/23 Full Review Samuel H Bloody fantastic. A well written tale from a romanticised vision of the Welsh coast. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/20/22 Full Review Audience Member I like the way Liam Lacey reviews this, as ‘a warped Welsh western' akin Coen Brothers offerings. He's not wrong. It's a well cast, slow-building, dry and dark witted Mystery, as much as it is anything else. I'd suggest Thriller is too big a reach, as it really is not… thrilling, that is. The subtlety of the humour throughout is perfect, as it never detracts from the storyline. It's an enjoyable watch, but I did struggle with the relationship between the corrupt and the law enforcers, as there was never really any debate or contest of the Protagonists' confession, nor any real sense of consequence Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Edward Porter Times (UK) Ryan Andrew Hooper adds a Welsh spin to Coen brothers-style mayhem. Aug 15, 2022 Full Review Cath Clarke Guardian [An] entertaining black comedy... Rated: 3/5 Aug 27, 2021 Full Review Wendy Ide Screen International A youthful exuberance in the writing and a high tolerance for eccentricity makes for a certain gauche quality in this energetic West Wales-set crime film, a debut from Ryan Andrew Hooper. Feb 26, 2021 Full Review Dallas King Flick Feast as darkly comic as the Coen Brothers and violent as a Tarantino flick... The sharp and witty script allows [Smiley] to use his natural charm and humour whilst tapping into a steeliness under the surface. Rated: 4/5 Nov 12, 2022 Full Review Alistair Lawrence Common Sense Media This outrageous British crime-comedy prides itself on its desire to not be taken too seriously. Rated: 3/5 Mar 21, 2022 Full Review Allen Almachar The MacGuffin There is craft and style here, even if the overall result left much to be desired. Rated: C Mar 18, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
