Critic Reviews of "Retreat"We Got This CoveredFebruary 11, 2013
Retreat sports some high-caliber actors in a claustrophobic home-invasion thriller a la Straw Dog that offers up some truly thrilling moments.Reel Film ReviewsFebruary 22, 2012
Retreat inevitably (and lamentably) establishes itself as a generic and hopelessly uninvolving thriller that grows more and more tedious as it progresses.FEARnetFebruary 01, 2012
A suspenseful and well-performed "home invasion" thriller with a nasty biological twist.Slant MagazineOctober 24, 2011
Retreat's wheels are constantly spinning, but they're not always taking us anywhere.Total FilmOctober 16, 2011
Tense if rather monotonously bleak, it's a shame Jason Isaacs and David Tennant didn't co-star as originally planned.Observer (UK)October 16, 2011
Tibbetts's passable thriller deploys on terra firma a plot similar to Charles Williams's nautical noir novel Dead Calm: a grieving couple's supposedly healing holiday is disrupted by a malevolent nutter.ViewLondonOctober 15, 2011
Smartly directed, intriguingly twisty and frequently tense thriller that's given an extra edge thanks to an engagingly complex turn from Jamie Bell.London Evening StandardOctober 14, 2011
A well-shot and directed telling of a claustrophobic tale which turns from thriller to horror story by the end. Only if you can't suspend your disbelief will it fail to keep you watching.Empire MagazineOctober 14, 2011
Excellent performances from the cast elevate this otherwise slightly flawed a hokey interloper story.GuardianOctober 13, 2011
This is a neat, well-crafted three-hander, making good use of its location; it really is a meaty role for Bell, who lets rip in what might be his most eye-catching part since Billy Elliot.Financial TimesOctober 13, 2011
Thandie Newton is the disappointed wife of Cillian Murphy in an end-of-marriage Straw Dogs-style horror flick.
