The Devil All the Time

Critics Consensus

The Devil All the Time's descent into darkness can be harrowing to the point of punishment, but it's offset by strong work from a stellar cast.

Audience Reviews for The Devil All the Time

  • 6h ago
    The Devil All the Time had all the makings for a great film. It has a large ensemble cast of character actors who give everything to their roles. The issue I had was the rushed nature of the plot. The book plays with the narrative and when you consider this is on Netflix, I had expected the filmmaker to be granted a longer running time. The film feels rushed and the intricate plotting of the novel falls to the side. I wanted more time with the characters and adding an additional 30-60 minutes would've elevated this into something epic. The film at its core is strong and the cast ensure this isn't your everyday crime thriller. The film still carries a hefty running time but it still feels shallow on the surface. The actors mightn't match the characters from the book and often that feels like a missed opportunity to work with the darker aspects of the book. I still enjoyed the film but it struggles in its comparison to the book. There was a chance for a longer and better version of the source material and sadly this will always be a way to digest the material without reading the book. It's loyal to the source material without the added depth. 18/10/2020

    A gripping southern gothic tale with a stellar task playing against archetype.

    One of the worst movies I've ever seen. I'd give almost anything to remove the memory of this from my brain.

    An interesting turn into the dark side of small town life here, wherein a couple of generations of different families contest with, umm, small scale evil tendencies, while at the same time professing a deep love of Ja-sus. The hypocrisy's the thing. Shifting perspective simultaneously keeps it all interesting and hard to follow - but not impossible. The actors however commit fully and so sell the poor bastard chile, making for an somewhat fun if grim ride through some towns you'd wish you'd've kept on driving through.
