    [A] perfectly serviceable thriller.

  • Gary Goldstein

    It’s a little dumb (OK, maybe more than a little), but No Good Deed is an otherwise brisk, efficient thriller that won’t punish audiences who drop in.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Lindsey Bahr

    There's an intriguing premise buried in there that could have resulted in a smart look inside the mind of a malignant narcissist (which, the movie reminds us over and over again, was Jeffrey Dahmer's diagnosis too).

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Everything plays out brutally, and the acting's not bad. But it's unsettling for external reasons beyond its control.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • James White

    Elba's reunites with Luther director Sam Miller to lesser effect in a workaday home-invasion thriller.

    Empire Full Review
  • Dan Adams

    Director Sam Miller’s attempt to take us on a thrill ride feels more like a slow train pulling up to the station.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    Ensuing action is tamely PG-13 in terms of graphic violence. Despite competent performances and packaging, dialogue and situations in Aimee Lagos’ script are too routine to create much excitement.

    Variety Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Would No Good Deed have anything worth talking about without the Ray Rice sucker punch tie-in? Barely.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    By its end, No Good Deed becomes troublingly easy to read as a parable about the untrustworthiness of black men. The filmmakers may not have intended it that way, but the movie is so bereft of anything else that its forays into moralistic paranoia stick out.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Andrew Lapin

    To the film’s mild credit, it’s the rare woman-in-peril thriller where the woman takes intelligent steps to defend herself.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Frank Scheck

    Elba, who recruited his former Luther director Miller into the project, gives the film more dignity than it deserves, and Henson delivers a performance of complex emotional shadings. But their fine work is utterly wasted in this B-movie exploitation thriller that would barely make for passable viewing on late night cable television.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    It’s certainly not good. But it’s not entirely dire.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Peter Sobczynski

    In order to keep the flimsy narrative going, both allegedly brilliant characters are forced to act like morons throughout. Full Review
  • Ben Kenigsberg

    Even without Mr. Rice in the news, No Good Deed would be damaged goods: an inert “Cape Fear” rehash that can’t seem to choose its favorite contrivance.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Josh Kupecki

    No Good Deed slouches toward its inevitable conclusion much like that rough beast to Bethlehem, falling apart and lacking all conviction.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    Somehow, No Good Deed finds a way to be exploitative and creepy wherever it can.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    No Good Deed is an example of the worst kind of exploitative thriller — and it’s being released during the worst possible week.
