A home invasion movie that would have benefited from rather more home invasion and less of the world's stupidest family taking a inordinate amount of time to argue/cry/work through their neurosis. A genuinely unnerving first 20 mins gets Jackals 5/10 but it sadly fell apart after that.
I loved the opening which had plenty of action and swapped genres before settling down on one, but I agree with the comments about the characters being stupid / unlikeable, while I felt there were some missed opportunities to really make an impact
Still, I liked the Jackals and would be interested in seeing them again in a new story. 7 / 10
No tears, please. It's a waste of good suffering.
Perfectly competent, but not very good. Annoying witless characters, and nobody to root for. The baddies looked cool in their masks but that was about it.
Just made me want to watch the far superior You're Next again.
