Watson, with her razor-sharp Hermione Granger conviction very much intact, gives us reason to care about her character's predicament even as the dramatics that put her there prove considerably less convincing.

Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times, 2016-04-15

 

Although genuinely gripping - at times, uncomfortably so - the tale of Lena and Daniel's efforts to escape from Colonia and expose its abuses suffers from a heavy-handed telling.

Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, 2016-04-14

Watson and Bruhl give it their best, and Nyqvist makes a powerful villain, but "Colonia" winds up being a movie that wants to get its way on too many levels, and winds up not satisfying on most of them.

Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com, 2016-04-15

 

It somehow manages to feel more like a Hallmark Channel romance than like a serious film.

Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, 2016-04-14

 

The gears don't all churn at the same speed or with unison of purpose: Is it supposed to be a romance or a thriller?

April Wolfe, L.A. Weekly, 2016-04-14

 

If you ever saw the episode of "Charlie's Angels" in which the women infiltrated a prison, you'll have a good idea of what to expect.

Randy Cordova, Arizona Republic, 2016-04-14

 

Just might work as a glossy thrill ride for viewers oblivious to the actual events it haplessly trivializes.

Dennis Harvey, Variety, 2015-09-15

 

This questionable historical thriller is a dictatorship of poor filmmaking.

Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter, 2015-09-14
