    Kill Your Friends remixes a brutally funny novel into an entertaining if somewhat familiar big-screen tale of amoral, chemically-fuelled decadence.

    For a film about the music business, it’s interesting that Kill Your Friends sticks so faithfully to one note throughout; it’s as if Niven fears any glimpse of humanity might risk the project’s integrity, but the lack of human empathy ultimately becomes this project’s biggest handicap.

  • David Hughes

    Nicholas Hoult does his best to bring Niven's weapons-grade scumbag to life, in a film hobbled by amateurish acting and absence of production value.

  • Ben Nicholson

    It's a rancid cocktail of misogyny, homophobia, and much more besides, that never convinces as scathing satire as much as back-slapping celebration.

  • Andrew Barker

    The film has its razor-sharp grace notes and a seductive stylishness, neither of which can override its relentlessly adolescent worldview.

    Variety Full Review
  • Benjamin Lee

    The difficulty with black comedy is avoiding overkill and Kill Your Friends is a dictionary definition of the word.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Sam Fragoso

    For 100 minutes, Kill Your Friends apes a myriad of styles, trying to pass off imitation as innovation.

  • Christopher Schobert

    It is Nicholas Hoult, and Nicholas Hoult only, who keeps one watching. Even here he commands the screen, and shows himself able to carry a film. Next time, perhaps it will be a good one, and not one with such a needlessly tired message.
