The performances in this film are incredible. Nicole Kidman, Sebastian Stan, and Tatiana Maslany are all outstanding and take advantage of every second of their screen time. Nicole Kidman stands out though, and was able to create a character filled with sorrow, regret and desperation. Kidman makes you feel all of those feelings right along with her. The director and cinematographer coordinated really well on this film to create an atmosphere that is enthralling and tragic and the locations and sets chosen perfectly show the depravity and misery that is the backdrop for most of the film. I <more>
hope this film, the actors, and director receive the attention they deserve.
Just watched one of the best movies that I expect to see this year and it's only February. One of those movies that remains with you long after the credits have ended. Outstanding performance from Nicole Kidman. I didn't recognise her, the makeover was that good. I had to check the cast list to make sure that I was watching the correct movie. Never mind the negative reviews. Just watch the movie, you will not be disappointed.
An interesting Indie Film, but far from perfect (by frondutom)
DESTROYER, despite suffering from some pacing issues and logical confusion, devilets a compelling, nonlinear story carried on the backs of some excellent performances.While at times the film felt as if it was hitting all the beats you would expect in an Action/Revenge story, but without spoiling the third act, it did its best to add some unique twists to the otherwise conventional story.Some characters remain underdeveloped and seem to exist only to serve Kidman's arc, and the film almost comes to a grinding halt whenever it focuses too heavily on Kidman's relationship with her <more>
daughter. Also, during the daytime, the film is almost shot like a procedural crime drama.Overall though, the result is a thought provoking action film with plenty of redeeming qualities. I would rate it either a 6 or a 7.
These negative reviews are totally ridiculous! This movie was an absolute gem! Nonstop entertainment and plenty of action all throughout the film! What a thrill ride that culminates with a crazy ending you will not see coming! Please don't let this one pass u by. It really deserves to be seen by many!!
A career best from Kidman. (by bob-the-movie-man)
"Destroyer" seems to have had mixed reviews, but it is really one of the most gripping watches I've seen in 2019.The plot is both familiar think "The Departed" mixed with "Hell or High Water" but at the same time intricate. Nicole Kidman plays police detective Erin Bell who's in a bad place. She looks to be on her last legs through drink and drugs, but she is being propped up in her post by an understanding boss and a tolerant partner who spends most of his time leaving "Where the hell are you?" voicemails .Erin is in pursuit of a truly evil <more>
man - Silas Toby Kebbell - who is back after a long absence. Erin and Silas have a past that is only unfolded as the film evolves. To say more would ruin what is an outstandingly well-constructed screenplay . Aside from the "day job", what Erin also has to contend with her truly wayward 16 year old daughter Shelby Jade Pettyjohn .It's an astonishing performance. Nicole Kidman is simply extraordinary in this role. As ably demonstrated recently in the excellent "Big Little Lies", Kidman at 52 years old, is still utterly gorgeous in the flesh. But In the same way that Charlize Theron "uglied up" for "Monster", so Kidman here is almost unregonizable as the police officer on the edge. Apparantly she could barely walk due to a bout of the flu during the final scenes of the film, so the acting here required not a huge amount of acting! But it's a terrific performance and one that I think justly deserves a Best Actress Oscar nomination. I'd be genuinely disappointed if she didn't get one for this.Standout performances also come from Sebastian Stan as Erin's former squeeze Chris and Jade Pettyjohn as young Shelby. Great to also see Bradley Whitford "West Wing" in a cameo as a truly smug and obnoxious money launderer.The screenplay by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi who wrote the "Ride Along" franchaise is also artfully done, to the extent that again I would personally nominate it for an Oscar. It's true, that the good cop / bad cop movie and the bank heist movie have been done countless times before, such that it feels immediately familiar. And the tone of the film supported by an effectively stress-inducing music score by Theodore Shapiro reminded me of "You Were Never Really Here". But here the continuous and dizzying flashing between timelines kept me on my toes and I for one didn't see the stunning twist in the tale coming at all.Credit must also go to director Karyn Kusama, who is new to me, who keeps the action moving at a slick pace such that I wasn't for one second bored.Perhaps if there's a criticism here it's that we don't get to see enough of the characterisations fleshed out. This is particularly true of the villain of the piece, Silas, who is painted sufficiently well as being on-the-edge and unhinged, but not unrepentantly "shoot a granny in the face" evil.I missed this at the cinema, so it took a plane journey to catch up on it. It's a heady mix of criminality, justice, revenge and atonement, and it made the journey just fly by. Highly recommended.

Reading the reviews here, the main knock seemed to be that the plot was "too complicated." Don't listen to those the people writing them were just too simple. Best movie I've seen in a while.
Nicole Kidman is the star!! (by benjaminsolomon34)
Nicole Kidman is an absolute beast in this movie. Her performance in Destroyer is truly enthralling, and quite frankly, the highlight of the entire picture. She submerges herself in the character both physically and emotionally. You can easily feel her pain and bleak persona. Even her joyous moments- as scarse as they are- were well interpreted by Kidman.The movie is a fine movie, at least to me, though many don't feel that way. It is a must-see.
NICOLE KIDMAN. (by kingsgrl2010)
Erin Bell is a brutal character that is driven with revenge, she can't seem to fix the world around her and she's not even trying to fix herself. Nicole Kidman who is unrecognizable other than her tall frame gives one of her greatest performances yet. Her chemistry with Sebastian Stan is fantastic and makes you understand why she is where she is now. The way she goes about solving the crime in this noir-thriller, is unrelenting, she is a character that is trying to do right by her child, but is so lost she doesn't know how. While you shouldn't feel bad for her character, you <more>
do, because Nicole is that. good. Big props to Karyn Kasuma, great direction, and the ending of this film is beautifully shot and completely heartbreaking. Overall a good thriller and a powerhouse performance by Ms. Kidman, a female director and female cinematographer - showing women can be strong, complicated, messed-up, and still filled with utter passion. see this one, so we can get more movies like this.
I'm not sure why there are so many negative reviews, although in reading them they have either not watched the film or simply failed to understand the plot.It's a good, dark film based around revenge, leading you on a journey to discover to discover who the real villain is.Please ignore the reviews that state it's confusing it's really not or the ones the watched 30 minutes of it not sure how you can review something you haven't seen? Watch it and make your own mind up!
