""... ONE OF THE NEW BREED OF DIRECTORS TO KEEP AN EYE ON. HIS SHORT FILM, 'JACKED' FEATURES SOME OF THE UK'S FINEST UP-AND-COMING ACTORS AND IS SET TO MAKE A STORM..."
""... Featuring a pair of performances that wouldn’t be out of place in a feature, Rene Pannevis’ Jacked nicely showcases the continued growth of a promising director."
" A solid urban thriller short, with a surprisingly deep twist that's perfectly performed."
" Rene Pannevis’s drama Jacked raised the bar. The flawless production and a great pair of performances by Thomas Turgoose (This is England) and Charley Palmer (Legend) offer the kind of slick yet gripping cinematic experience you'd want from a fully-polished feature."
"What this amounts to is an example of the impeccable talents working in and around the UK film industry, signposting that Pannevis is a name to take note of. ...Jacked is a striking debut from Pannevis, who demonstrates an ability to condense an exploration of morality and patriarchal unrest into a mere fifteen-minute run-time."
"This could very well be a knock out feature."
"JACKED delivers a layered narritive in such a short space of time."
"...a terrific and troubling film."
