Jordan Williams’s review published on Letterboxd:
I’m really conflicted about this one. I really wanted to like it because I recently watched Gone Girl and found out how badass Rosamund Pike is. This movie is an entertaining thriller with an antihero female lead so it should be amazing (as Promising Young Woman showcased), but the screenplay just was not there in this one. It was also really hard to not compare Pike’s character to Amy Dunne who is one of the best villains in cinematic history. Rosamund Pike is still completely badass in this movie, but not even her performance could enhance the mediocrity of the screenplay.
