Ilan Preskovsky quote iconSadly, despite all the things that it gets very right and for all of its top-tier talent, it’s hard to actually recommend Galveston to anyone but crime-noir fans with the strongest of stomachs. I can’t lie; I personally found it virtually unbearable.

Tomatometer quote iconGalveston’s talented cast - and confident direction from Mélanie Laurent - help set this uneven crime drama apart from less distinguished genre entries.
