  • Stephen Holden

    Lone Scherfig (“An Education”), the Danish filmmaker who directed the movie from a screenplay by Ms. Wade, has coaxed wonderfully nasty performances from a young cast.

  • Peter Debruge

    Scherfig approaches the milieu with shrewd anthropological wit, amplifying Wade’s research with her own keen outsider insights — this on top of an expert grasp of tension and tone as the club’s initial allure turns to anxiety and disgust.

  • Catherine Shoard

    The Riot Club hands its audience a ticket, as well as a free pass to pour scorn over proceedings. That's a double-bill which should prove pretty irresistible.

  • Liam Lacey

    There’s a flicker of déjà vu seeing Max Irons step into the role of a posh Oxford University student in The Riot Club. Irons has inherited the cheekbones and silky voice of his father, Jeremy Irons.

  • Graham Fuller

    Don’t bother with The Riot Club unless you enjoy watching filthy rich young Englishmen conduct an orgy of violence while vilifying the poor.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Inkoo Kang

    Director Lone Scherfig’s stagings of these suspenseful set pieces are masterful, but the rest of the thriller is a fairly predictable manifesto against Britain’s de facto oligarchy.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Cath Clarke

    Wade’s dialogue is totally convincing, all in-jokes and boarding school banter... The trouble with The Riot Club is that dramatically it never quite comes together.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Ian Freer

    Well played across the board, The Riot Club is an entertaining glimpse into the dark side of privilege. Yet it lacks the richness and insight to be anything more.

    Empire Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    Some of the supporting performances are so hammily spiteful and giggly they let the side down, but the film is perfectly cast in its main roles.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Ben Nicholson

    It makes for entertaining viewing but its power is undermined by a ultimate lack of insight amongst the debauchery.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    Although the performances are uniformly on point and the dialogue is tartly British, the film ultimately fails to earn its riotous stripes.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    It’s a film that seems to have no further point than to remind us that some powerful jerks were once powerful jerk kids. Point taken, but it’s not cinematically satisfying. Full Review
  • David Rooney

    Laura Wade’s adaptation of her hit play, Posh, has sacrificed much of its savage comedy en route to the screen, and while the dark drama is never dull, its portrait of upper-crust entitlement run amok is seldom surprising either.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Mike D'Angelo

    Boys will be boys and wealthy a--holes will be wealthy a--holes in The Riot Club, an alleged cautionary tale that revels in bad behavior for nearly two hours before finally offering up a stern “tsk, tsk, tsk.” Unlike the great gangster and outlaw movies, however, this unpleasant, moralistic film doesn’t succeed in making transgression look cathartically appealing.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Nikola Grozdanovic

    All of that star-making and directorial grace Scherfig possesses is substituted for a bludgeoning attempt at provoking the British elite into taking a long hard look at themselves through a cracked mirror. She retains her confrontational sensibilities with none of the subtlety, and hammers a single message to mind-numbing effect.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Matthew Dessem

    The Riot Club was clearly made by people who understand that a film that revels in conspicuous consumption doesn’t magically become anti-greed by hastily grafting on a moral. But instead, they’ve made a polemic that suddenly, unconvincingly insists it’s a character study.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Despising the British upper class is so utterly common, as we see in The Riot Club, a farcically heavy-handed attempted satiric takedown of an elite group of Oxford students.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Clayton Dillard

    The thinly sketched characters of the film are numerous and inconsequential, with director Lone Scherfig giving sparse attention to humanizing or deepening them.
