Synopsis

Following the brutal murder of a young real estate agent, a hardened detective attempts to uncover the truth in a case where nothing is as it seems, and by doing so dismantles the illusions in his own life.


Reptile is a 2023 American neo-noir crime thriller film directed by Grant Singer in his feature directorial debut and written by Singer and Benicio del Toro. The film stars del Toro as Tom Nichols, a hardened detective who investigates the brutal murder of a young real estate agent. As Nichols digs deeper into the case, he uncovers a web of deceit and corruption that leads him to confront his own demons.

The film has been praised for its stylish visuals, complex characters, and del Toro’s powerhouse performance. However, some critics have found the film to be overlong and convoluted, with a plot that doesn’t always make sense.

Overall, Reptile is a well-made and thought-provoking thriller that is sure to stay with you long after the credits have rolled.

Here are some of the pros and cons of the film:

Pros:

  • Stylish visuals
  • Complex characters
  • Benicio del Toro’s powerhouse performance
  • Intriguing mystery

Cons:

  • Overlong
  • Convoluted plot
  • Some subplots are left unresolved

My verdict:

I recommend Reptile to fans of neo-noir crime thrillers and Benicio del Toro’s work. The film is well-made and thought-provoking, with a complex and intriguing mystery. However, viewers should be prepared for a long and sometimes confusing film.
