More Info:
  • Casey Cipriani

    Through the use of different set ups -- such as a shootout seen only through the crack of a door, or a fight inside an elevator seen from way down the hall -- Lynch is able to add suspense to fight scenes that might otherwise seem flat.

    Lynch has a sure hand... The camera moves but never feels overly active, and within the first few minutes the geography of the apartment is so brilliantly laid out that you feel like you could navigate your way around blindfolded. It has a nice tempo, with the appropriate lulls in the action and some surprising reveals.

  • Frank Scheck

    Joe Lynch's determinedly B-movie exercise is strictly formulaic but should well please genre enthusiasts who will relish watching the sexiest female badass since Uma Thurman in "Kill Bill."

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Everly has the heaving, bloody bosoms of an exploitation flick, yet Hayek gives the character powerful dignity. She's no victim, nor an off-the-shelf "strong woman."

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    Nothing like a trashy, all-hell-breaks-loose onslaught of blood, bullets and babes that borrows inspiration from a recycling bin stuffed with leftovers from ‘60s grindhouse films, Japanese horror, “Kill Bill,” “Saw” and splatter-fest videogames to cleanse one’s visual palate of those highbrow Oscar contenders.

  • Roger Moore

    Everly has just enough novel touches to entice aficionados, but not enough to transcend the carnage and cliches. But Hayek, back in the sort of B movie that launched her career, gives good value and will make you cackle in surprise, if you’re the sort who can giggle at the old ultra-violence as it is served up in heaping helpings here.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    With so little backstory and character depth, it’s nothing more than a pointless exercise in brutal, nasty style.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Vadim Rizov

    Alternating patches of violence with sticky sentiment between Everly and her mother and/or daughter, the film isn’t particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion.

  • Nick de Semlyen

    Messy and unlikeable.

    Empire Full Review
  • Matt Glasby

    A facepalm of a film that places no value on life or limb yet still expects the audience to, this sub-par shoot-’em-up plays out like Four Rooms’ fifth part.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    This slickly assembled exploitation-movie wankfest gets some mileage out of its star’s fully committed performance, though not enough to offset the grim, monotonous tenor of the proceedings — or the glib, fetishistic recycling of Asian thriller tropes.

    Variety Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    At the most basic level—and this is as basic as movies get—Everly delivers exactly what it promises, though as with most American films with sex and violence, the emphasis is heavily weighted toward the latter.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Chuck Bowen

    Yet another boring ode to heavy breathing that's offered under the hypocritical pretense of celebrating female empowerment.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    Feels precision-engineered for a morally torn fanboy who likes the idea of female empowerment but needs it served with a heavy dose of torture porn and glistening flesh.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Yes, it’s all in good fun. And there’s a certain verve to the way Lynch handles the violence, even if he’s less of a stylist than Tarantino. But the film’s brutality... is so excessive, even if tongue-in-cheek, that it leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    What on earth is Salma Hayek doing starring in this exploitative, junky piece of torture trash?

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    This is nothing but nasty, misogynist torture porn.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    The salacious sadism in Everly is nothing more than "Die Hard" meets Victoria’s Secret. That is not a recommendation.
