Critics Of "Lizzie Borden Took an Ax"
January 27, 2014 The lack of focus, and a protagonist who seemingly can't decide which movie she's in, makes this Lifetime movie a slick but unsatisfying swing and a miss.Read in Source
May 04, 2014 Included are the trial and all the trimmings. What's missing is the horror of the event. Except for a few shots of dear old daddy's caved-in face, there's not much gore, even for a TV movie.Read in Source
January 27, 2014 Lifetime has a knack for attracting top-tier talent for what often ends up being silly little movies, but Lizzie Borden seemed different -- everyone was having a lot of fun without getting too over-the-top campy.Read in Source
Los Angeles Times
January 27, 2014 The movie ends on such a note as to cause the audience to wonder how long it will take before "A," of Pretty Little Liars fame, starts leaving Lizzie Borden an incriminating text or two.Read in Source
New York Post
January 21, 2014 Lizzie comes across more as a whiny, moody teen than a psychotic murderess, and Ricci is much-too-attractive to play the dowdy, crazy-eyed Lizzie familiar from those faded black-and-white photos (just sayin').Read in Source
April 08, 2014 There's a too-quick and convenient wrap-up to the film, but that's the only real sour note Lizzie Borden Took an Ax hits.Read in Source

New York Daily News
January 27, 2014 The movie itself apparently isn't sure the murders themselves are lurid enough. So it adds a few things that didn't happen, plus some 21st-century music.Read in Source
January 24, 2014 Lizzie Borden takes an ax to many assumptions -- including the one that Lifetime movies aren't worth watching.Read in Source
Common Sense Media
January 30, 2014 Brutal murders, courtroom drama in historical drama.Read in Source
May 05, 2014 Lifetime's made-for-TV movie Lizzie Borden Took an Axe covers the events of the murder and ensuing trial, but doesn't really get any deeper into the crime than the schoolyard chant does.Read in Source
