"It's terrifyingly riveting."
— David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
"Paying riveting testament to the madness of modern times, it dares us not to look away."
— Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"If good intentions or even pragmatism aren’t enough to make the wealthy and powerful think about income inequality, New Order suggests, there’s always fear."
— Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
"This is dynamic cinema which takes no prisoners outside the hostages on screen: loud and violent, it lures the viewer into a place where there can be no bystanders. In that way, it’s quite magnificent – an outlet for those boiling in our times."
— Fionnuala Halligan, Screen Daily
"Director Michel Franco's film, New Order, a stinging indictment on economic inequality, is electrifying - like a cattle prod to the nether regions. That vivid image is actually seen in one of the many disturbing sequences in this mesmerizing drama."
— Gary M. Kramer, Salon.com
"Excellent acting, cinematography and editing will keep you on the edge of your seat. On view is the bourgeoise's worst nightmare. The astonishing and disturbing class warfare is more alarming, compelling and macabre than that seen in Parasite."
— Dwight Brown, National Newspaper Publishers Association
"A brilliantly unflinching look at a society built on extreme disparities that reads more like an omen than a far-fetched fantasy, New Order repeatedly subverts any hope of redemption. It guts you with the worst of human nature, like Franco often does, but within a larger sociopolitical scale, and for that, it’s utterly unshakable."
— Carlos Aguilar, The Playlist
