Engaging, no-frills entertainment that still fails to justify its reason for being.

The Guilty is never boring, but halfway through you've just had enough of it.

Loses some of the hard-hitting edges of the original.

It's all a smoke show, all flash-bang complexity with no soul.

(Gyllenhaal) builds to an all-caps-plus-exclamation-point performance; that he does so without losing his grip - on us or the character - is some kind of miracle.

(Gyllenhaal) sells the urgency and high stakes with aplomb.

Gyllenhaal flexes all his considerable acting muscles in this taut, tense thriller. One of the better remakes you'll see.
