Todd McCarthy
The Hollywood Reporter
"It’s quite a story, which Berlinger moves along with unrelenting energy. He also gets good marks across the board for his work with the actors"  POS
United StatesUnited States
Owen Gleiberman
"An honestly unsettling and authentic inquiry into the question of who Ted Bundy was (...) [Efron] is startlingly good: controlled, magnetic, audacious, committed, and eerily right"  POS
United KingdomUnited Kingdom
Tim Grierson
"Zac Efron projects the right amount of edgy, empty handsomeness, but the movie’s conceit doesn’t pay enough dividends (...) A very clever structural conceit that ultimately doesn’t offer many insights"  NEU
United StatesUnited States
Kate Erbland
"It’s the rare film about a criminal that offers human details without humanizing a man who so many agree was a monster (...) [Efron] is able to bring his own take to the character"  POS

Rodrigo Perez
The Playlist
"'Extremely Wicked,' rings hollow and false and is really just as interested in the sensational and salacious as any other reductive thriller"  NEG
United StatesUnited States
Carlos Aguilar
The Wrap
"Efron is savagely convincing (...) A thought-provoking piece of cinema that avoids the easy temptation of shock value in favor of a more philosophical take on a diabolical murderer."  POS
United StatesUnited States
Jeannette Catsoulis
The New York Times
"A very odd picture, one that purports to care about the women Bundy duped (...) while simultaneously marveling at their gullibility (...) Too unfocused and lacking in imagination"  NEG
United StatesUnited States
Jordan Raup
The Film Stage
"[It is] a curiosity even if it falters in what it intially sets out to accomplish."  NEU
United KingdomUnited Kingdom
Peter Bradshaw
The Guardian
"The film hasn’t done justice to the sheer volume of horror (...) There is something basically unsatisfactory about this glassy-eyed biopic of the satanic dreamboat Bundy (…) Rating: ★★ (out of 5)"  NEG
