“..a crowd-pleaser from start to finish..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]


“..Strangerland is ruined by the preciousness of its ideas..”
by Tim Grierson [Screen Daily]


“..it's a film that clearly has nothing but compassion for the troubled teens at the center of it, and well-worth checking out..”
by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]


“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]


“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]


“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]


“..though the books are brilliant, Depp's attempt to make his own Terry-Thomas movie feels tired and more than a little tortured..”
by Ali Plumb [Empire Online]


“..it's not much fun at all, but at least it's over..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]


“..the new animated musical fairy tale from the mind and the mixtape of George Lucas, is indeed strange. What's missing is the magic..”

“..Patrick Tobin's infuriatingly coy script... turning the film into a morbid guessing game..”
