“..an underwhelming survival thriller..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
1.5 of 4

“.."Heatstroke" starts looking like Adam Sandler's "Blended" more by the minute..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]
2 of 5

“.."Heatstroke" is dealing with enough problems to plausibly ignore that its main character isn't memorable, but what's confounding here is how permissive Purcell is, allowing the film to be forgettable when it offers the opportunity to be so much more..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

MALL :

THE CULTURE HIGH :

“..an amateurish hand is in the term-paper-like voice-over narration and the inclusion of underqualified talking heads..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

YOUNG ONES :

“..unfortunately this film is equally dusty, with a mishmash of ideas and self-conscious execution..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

BIRDMAN :

“..Keaton's terrific, off-kilter performance is just one of several in this dizzying, high-energy movie. A must-see..”
