"Some of the performers -- especially Maria Bello as the hero's wife and Ed Harris as a mysterious stranger -- are gripping." Movieline's Hollywood Life "The family tableau that ends the film is as chilling and redemptive as anything Cronenberg has ever crafted....You won't know what hit you." Rolling Stone "Cronenberg plays that pulp-revenge thriller plot with a perfectly pitched straight face throughout..." Uncut "It's about the violence that surpasseth all understanding -- a cataclysm of awful consequence that unfolds with insidious intimacy and a Cronenbergian delight in the animal squish and shock of torn bodies." -- Grade: A Entertainment Weekly "A masterpiece of indirection and pure visceral thrills, David Cronenberg's latest mindblower, A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE, is the feel-good, feel-bad movie of the year." New York Times "Cronenberg's masterful, intelligent and gripping meta-thriller leaves us pondering about our enduringly perverse desire for alternative realities, in which surrogate violent alter egos run righteously and preposterously amok." Sight and Sound "[With] a fabulous Ed Harris in Blues Brothers shades as a mutilated Mob smoothie; the best William Hurt in years; and career-topping work by both leads. Always keeping us unbalanced, VIOLENCE finally seems less eccentric than scintillatingly original."USA Today "[I]t's tight, exciting, and, let's not forget, hilarious." Premiere Ranked #1 in Uncut's Best Films Of 2005 -- "An heroic mainstream comeback for director David Cronenberg....A modern American masterpiece."

It's a smart, slickly paced, well-acted science-fiction cautionary tale-horror movie-psychological drama."Los Angeles Times "With seamless special effects, director Vincenzo Natali creates a believable hybrid creature that alternately elicits fear, revulsion and sympathy."USA Today "[Natali] has achieved that rare, sought-after thing: a vision of an ethically compromised near-future just possible enough to engross both intellectually and emotionally and outrageous enough to engage suspension of disbelief."Movieline "[A] pleasurably shivery, sometimes delightfully icky horror movie about love and monsters in the age of genetic engineering..."New York Times "For all the gleaming technology and echoes of cloning, stem cell research, and other contemporary issues, the horror here stems from the couple's attempts to keep a fragile, newborn creature alive..." -- Grade: B+A.V.
