Like most self-conscious attempts at a “midnight movie,” Tusklacks the conviction that would make it anything more than an outré curiosity; it’s essentially a filmed dare, combined with fan service. The film’s sole redeeming factor is the juicy role it provides to 76-year-old cult actor Michael Parks, who’s experiencing a late-career renaissance thanks to filmmakers like Smith and Quentin Tarantino.

A jauntily self-aware fabulist, Mr. Smith doesn’t have it in him to dispirit for long, and “Tusk” proceeds with an ingratiating good cheer that deflects critical grumbling. About two-thirds of the way in, however, the silliness… goes supernova… The result is so out there that you can imagine Mr. Smith and his collaborators rolling in the aisles at their own preposterousness. If you can find your inner 16-year-old, you might just join them.

To its sentimentally off-kilter end, Tusk’s comedy remains a grotesquely solipsistic fabric stitched from lame digs at Canada, beside-the-point literary references, and one insufferably indulgent Johnny Depp cameo. And as a whole, it suggests the worst possible gene splice of a barbed Terrance and Phillip South Park appearance, Fargo’s blithe condescension, and the smuggest of Quentin Tarantino pastiches.

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Tusk

    A shade too long, tonally confused & distracted, Tusk is nonetheless Kevin Smith at his zaniest & most creative; a fully-baked spoof of The Human Centipede that reminds the audience of his one-of-a-kind approach to character-based storytelling & perhaps his most sophisticated work of cinema to date. The villain in particular is brilliantly-realised; his dialog at once darkly comic, insightful, anguished, sympathetic.

  • FilmEdie's rating of the film Tusk

    Despite this being an objectively bad movie, I didn't *hate* it. It was just sort of... boring. No fault of the guy who wrote the hilarious fake ad that inspired the film in the first place; that was the good part. But, filtered through wherever Kevin Smith's at these days, it came out unfunny and empty and flat. Formulaic gags, obnoxious characters, self-indulgent dialogue... Just tiresome. A waste all around.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Tusk

    Ever been really stoned and you and your friends come up with a great idea for a movie and say 'Hey man like we should totally make that movie'? Well this is what happens. Based on a bloody podcast this meld of backwoods bizarreness and 'Human Centipede' body horror with a dash of Canadian bashing clichés is an awful mess. Smith's career continues to spiral down mind you Depp's cameo has to be seen to be believed.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Tusk

    Most assuredly an improvement over "Red State." Here, Kevin Smith seems to find a more natural blend of horror and comedy, with the scales tipping towards comedy. It must be said that "Tusk" reaches its peak whenever Justin Long and Michael Parks are sharing the screen together. A late arrival from Johnny Depp is mostly unwelcome since Depp gives one of the most miscalculated and tone deaf performances of his career.

  • J. O.'s rating of the film Tusk

    Walks the line between horrendous and genius. As a long time hater of Smith's work, admitting this was entertaining is painful. The production itself was pretty slick, with a chillingly good performance from Parks. Long irritates, but is supposed to, while the remaining cast is mostly a bore - other than Depp's Québecer gumshoe. I know people hated his performance, but his "bouchering of de men" line had me sold.

  • Rafael Zen's rating of the film Tusk

    Does anyone still have a crush on Depp's delusional acting? To me, Tusk loses its surreal and interesting aura when Depp's character enters the screen with a Wes-Anderson-Gone-Bad persona and the delicacy of a walrus. Too bad that in this exact moment humor becomes a desperate try. It was a really cool idea that turned out to be as memorable as nothing. In this film, the true horror is watching it untill the end.

  • Palmat's rating of the film Tusk

    Entertaining (yep!), tragic (somewhat), gross (mos def!), funny (kind of) and far from cohesive. I was totally on board until Inspector Clouseau decided to turn up and ruin the mood. And the end felt like Smith didn't know when to stop. If he would have skipped the jokes and focus on the serious aspects things would have worked better. Still a good fucked up movie that you'll surely remember.

  • Jason's rating of the film Tusk

    I never would have seen this. Thank you, C. I can't give it five stars because objectively it is very bad.
