Movie Reviews

  • writer-director John Swab is clearly influenced by films such as the "The Big Short" and his grasp sometimes exceeds his reach as he indulges in a few too many stylized touches and meandering subplots, but "Body Brokers" keeps us in its grips throughout
    3 of 4 by Richard Roeper [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • the filmmaker wants to tell both stories but in doing so never finds a rhythm or any real emotional engagement; There's a story worth telling here and it's filled with serviceable actors doing good work, but it's a mess narratively
    2 of 5 by Robert Kojder [Flickering Myth ]
  • the ending comes very abruptly and, the first hour is painstakingly slow. However, it does have a very eye-opening message and contains several solid performances from Frank Grillo, Michael Kenneth Williams and Jack Kilmer
    3.5 of 5 by Josiah Teal [Film Threat ]
  • in John Swab's addiction drama, which attempts to construct a "Big Short" -style expose of the drug-treatment industry ..the acting is solid, and some of the scams are intriguing, but the message fails to land
    Review rate : C+ by Josh Bell [Crooked Marquee ]
  • a self-described former junkie who experienced the dirty side of going clean firsthand, writer-director John Swab delivers an entertaining and eye-opening insider's take on the treatment racket
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
