Movie Reviews

  • there's enough here to keep you engrossed; The visual effects are slick, but the most indispensable effect is the human element of Melanie Laurent's performance -- by turns distraught, desperate, tough, determined and resourceful
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • no doubt "Oxygen" keeps itself humming at a brisk pace, with a performance by Melanie Laurent that holds our attention and a plot that has more than its fair share of twists, both predictable and inventive
    3 of 5 by Shelagh Rowan-Legg [Screen Anarchy ]
  • Laurent gives an empathetic performance, perfectly capturing the character's sense of mounting fear and frustration; Although a lot of the film's best ideas are borrowed, what transpires is, within its own limited parameters, immersive and impressive
    3 of 5 by Matt Glasby [Radio Times ]
  • at its best, "Oxygen" successfully approximates the feel of an escape room; "Oxygen" is derivative but well-designed, as Alexandre Aja and his collaborators elegantly crib from some of the best modern science-fiction thrillers
    2.5 of 4 by Chuck Bowen [Slant Magazine ]
  • an engrossing, often terrifying sci-fi chiller with a must-see turn from Melanie Laurent; Alexandre Aja makes excellent use of the claustrophobic setting, finding plenty of creative ways to ratchet the tension up to almost unbearable levels
    4 of 5 by Mark Cassidy [Comic Book Movie ]
  • although it never fully resonates dramatically, the stressed and terrified claustrophobic performance from Melanie Laurent elevates what is, ultimately, a series of revelations escalating in privacy and scope
    3 of 5 by Robert Kojder [Flickering Myth ]
  • a virtuoso solo performance from Melanie Laurent; the visual imagination is grimly witty. And Laurent is terrific, deserving of top billing even were she not the only actor in sight
    3 of 5 by Danny Leigh [Financial Times ]
  • a clever example of creativity thriving within the strict protocols of the coronavirus pandemic, tense confinement thriller "Oxygen" plays like "Buried" in outer space
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
