Storyline Heading
The receipt of an ink-marked bill in the office mail propels veteran LAPD detective Erin Bell on a perilous journey to find the murderer and gang leader, Silas, and perhaps to finally make peace with her tortured past.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Crime Drama - This very dark, violent, and grim action drama is a big change-of-pace showcase for Nicole Kidman, who has never tackled such a rough role. Sebastian Stan has a decidedly supporting role. Constant language, sexual content, and bloody violence make this strictly for adults.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average This is a pretty rote story, and many of the plot points beggar belief, but Kusama's flourishes help somewhat to elevate the material into something more meditative, a character study of a woman in ruins. The final shots are stunning, although slightly overwrought.

USA Today Full Review
Good While its narrative is unnecessarily complex and its story influences obvious, director Karyn Kusama is mostly successful juggling a noir style, shifty denizens and shadowy dealings under L.A.'s bright sun. Kidman is the main draw here. ...she's scary good

NY Post Full Review
Good The particulars of the story are typical for the genre — a heist gone wrong, a slippery crime boss — but they're elevated to visceral levels by Kidman's hard-core performance, as Bell grimly works her way through suspects looking for a gang leader...who has reappeared after years underground.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average Yet the longer Destroyer goes on, the more it becomes apparent that there's barely enough substance here to support an Aesop's fable, let alone a Los Angeles crime epic.
