Bryan Lienesch78 - 'Nightcrawler' essentially sets out to villify anyone and everyone associated with television news. And painting in such broad strokes will be off-putting to many.
Sober Film Critic James Brown61 - Sure, there are plenty of intense, disastrous developments served up with a side of extra gore, but that's not enough. Nightcrawler lacks a certain potency or depth that would take it to the next level.
