With the help of our friend Olga, we have compiled below various movie reviews of Sam’s latest film, Every Breath You Take:

Claflin elevates the formulaic quality by playfully wavering between charismatic and psychotic as he burrows deeper into the Clark women’s lives, and thus Philip’s psyche.” And this “Rated R for Sam Claflin’s wreaking havoc.” New York Times

Claflin is ultimately why the film is as enjoyable as it is, with his gradually unnerving James proving evermore the live-wire among the more auto-pilot mentality of both Affleck and Monaghan.” The AU Review

Sam Claflin does most of the heavy lifting here, portraying James with a balance of charisma, elusive allure, and calculated danger. The actor has been in dramas, fantasies, and romance movies, but he’s never played a twisted character like James before and it’s engaging to watch Claflin in the role as his character unravels. James’ appearance seems questionable right from the start, though the extent to which he’s untrustworthy ends up being the true surprise.Screenrant

Sam Claflin brings a dark performance, expanding outward from the generally “good guy” role he has played in the past. There is a flicker of madness in his eyes, all while uttering sweet-nothings to those he is with. There is an unpredictability masked within a cool exterior.Film Inquiry

Sam Claflin does an excellent job of switching between personas of the charming and helpful grief-stricken brother and the psychopathic menace that he actually turns out to be. There’s something about the unhinged glint in his eyes that you can see from time to time combined with his odd behavior when he’s in his sister’s house throughout the film that warns you his character will turn out to be very dangerous.Nerds and Beyond

“Claflin, of ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ fame, brings the same charm to this role that he brought in ‘The Hunger Games’ franchise when playing off Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson. However, very quickly that charm takes on a new meaning and becomes incredibly eerie and sinister which was impressive to see that line walked so well. Luckily, Claflin balances the charm and creepiness in just the right way to give the best performance in the film.” Hollywood Insider

“the movie is still enjoyable thanks largely to Claflin’s great work. Nothing anyone does is unexpected or surprising, but Claflin’s deftness in creative a sociopathic, manipulative character is great to see.Macarthur Advertiser
