"Children of Men meets The Purge, but much better than that sounds. --- Electric, brutal and infuriating ---Billed as a dystopic drama taking place in a near-future Mexico City, the events of New Order could very well unfold, say, tonight, as the poor rise up in a seemingly spontaneous wave, covering the streets with green paint and raiding the homes of the city’s elite, including the chi-chi wedding between the daughter of a high-powered developer and a son of the city’s power brokers. But then the military takes over, and a whole new societal structure presents itself. --- [Director-screenwriter Michel] Franco's ultimate message might be obvious – there is always another level of power operating above the one you think is controlling things – but he delivers it in such a riveting manner that you absolutely cannot turn away. I both cannot wait to watch it again, and dread the opportunity to revisit Franco’s many nausea-inducing tableaux, which so dangerously straddle the line between incendiary and exploitative. For now, I’m going to call this a masterpiece." - Barry Hertz / The Globe and Mail

"Horrifying, unpredictable and out of control --- Imagine an even grimmer Children of Men" - Nicholas Barber / IndieWire

"Short, sharp shock to the system --- Terrifyingly riveting." - David Rooney / The Hollywood Reporter

"This class conflict makes Parasite look tame" - Marshall Shaffer / Slash Film

"Picks up where Parasite and The Platform left off --- Plays like a vividly cinematic nightmare" - Norman Wilner / NOW Toronto
