Knowing the outcome behind the true-life tragedy "24 Days" doesn't diffuse the horror, the tension or the sadness of watching one family's drama unfold day after agonizing day when a son is kidnapped and hope dies.

Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, 2015-04-23

 

24 Days takes strength from real-world specifics. But the most powerful thing about the movie is its rejection of omniscience. The crime it reconstructs is beyond understanding.

Mark Jenkins, NPR, 2015-04-23

 

As a suspenseful true crime story, "24 Days" succeeds. As a warning against the ever present dangers of anti-Semitism, it is eloquent and disturbing. It's in combining the two that Arcady mishandles the case.

Peter Keough, Boston Globe, 2015-04-23

 

24 Days is neither subtle nor particularly sophisticated as filmmaking, but its refusal to reduce lived reality to generic tropes is admirable.

Adam Nayman, AV Club, 2015-04-23

 

The film is not always subtle... but remains captivating as a pure procedural that raises questions about the Paris police's handling of such situations, as well as about the state of race relations in contemporary France.

Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter, 2015-04-20

 

Sadly, "24 Days" isn't nearly as involving as it should be.

Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, 2015-04-23

 

Would that the film had explored such emotional contradictions in greater detail, but this retelling is more concerned with black-and-white morality, which drains it of suspense.

Abby Garnett, Village Voice, 2015-04-22
