Chicago Sun-Times

By Mary Houlihan
Violet & Daisy won’t be everyone’s cup of tea... But view this as a modern comic book/fairy tale, and it’s easier to accept this saga of girls with guns and the life lessons they eventually confront.

It’s a film that doesn’t always work but when it does you almost hear an audible click. Violet & Daisy has its share of these ah-ha moments.

Violet & Daisy feels radically disconnected from recognizable human behavior.

By William Goss
So self-conscious that it alienates the viewer early and often.

Violet & Daisy comes out of the gate guns blazing. Too bad it ends as a misfire.
