REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Michael Sheen's deliciously hammy performance is the standout element of this aspiring franchise starter..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
“..the Adventurer saves its worst faux pas for last, failing to realize that there's a difference between leaving the door open for a sequel and thrusting it open with such force that all air and life are sucked out of the film..”
by R. Kurt Osenlund [Slant Magazine]
“..all should feel proud of the accomplishment despite its unavoidable up-hill climb, but I'm just not sure it'll be enough to keep Mariah's journey going..”
by Jared Mobarak [The Film Stage]
