What the Critics say

24.com
Ilan Preskovsky quote iconAll the great performances, artistic direction and obvious conviction can’t make up for a film that is dull, dour, overly long, humourless, badly constructed, hideously ugly and utterly unable to evoke even the faintest hints of sympathy in its audience.

Tomatometer quote iconDestroyer’s grueling narrative is as uncompromising as Nicole Kidman’s central performance, which adds extra layers to a challenging film that leaves a lingering impact.
