The Times – Kate Muir – 16 December 2011
Wreckers is a small canvas, but it contains fascinating performances from Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy as a couple returning to their roots in the country.
On the Box – Nikki Gilliland – 16 December 2011
With stellar performances driving the movie – Cumberbatch is particularly fantastic as the often fragile husband teetering on the edge of violent desperation – Wreckers is a creepy and sinister portrayal of a married couple driven to breaking point by their own burning secrets and suspicions.

The Telegraph – Tim Robey – 15 December 2011
Still, this intelligently shot and edited film has a lot going for it, not least Foy, whose pale, freckled beauty suggests something of the young Isabelle Huppert. She and Cumberbatch, who is excellent as usual, create a marriage both tender and remote, a little scared of itself, its bedrock newly unstable.

Daily Star – Andy Lea – 11 December 2011
TV’S Sherlock, Benedict Cumberbatch, delivers a timely reminder of his big-screen credentials in this tightly-wound psychological thriller.The actor is superb as plummy teacher David who moves with his new wife Dawn (the brilliant Claire Foy) back to the sleepy village where he grew up.
