“It’s the most gripping sports movie in years.”
★★★★★ Clarisse Loughrey, Independent

“Operating at the peak of his powers, Luca Guadagnino has the time of his life with this practically sadistic exploration of unrelenting obsession.”
★★★★★ Alex Godfrey, Empire Magazine

“This increasingly aggressive game provides the present-tense drama for a flashback-filled movie that’s ingeniously structured as, oh yes, a tennis match between now and then.”
★★★★★ Kevin Maher, Times

“Challengers must be the most purely pleasurable film of the year so far. Like a great tennis match, it’s a clash of sleekly honed bodies and minds, and the question of who finally comes out on top is irrelevant to the fun of the struggle itself.”
★★★★★ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph

“Moment by moment, line by line and scene by scene, Challengers delivers sexiness and laughs, intrigue and resentment, and Guadagnino’s signature is there in the intensity, the closeups and the music stabs.”
★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
