Review rate : C-

“..unfortunately, after a brisk and engaging first act, the film becomes bogged down by an overabundance of subplots and increasingly maudlin dramatic turns that threaten to sink the entire affair..”
by Cory Everett [The Playlist]
Review rate : C+

“..it falls completely flat..”
by Adam Chitwood [Collider]
“..is unquestionably an auteur film, but one festooned with so many bad and unnecessary ideas that one can't help wondering if a more modest, hemmed-in version of the same project might not have proved more effective..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
3 of 4

“..is just as emotionally rich and heartfelt as his 2004 coming of age classic Garden State..”
by Mara Reinstein [Us Weekly]
“..a more mature work from actor-director-producer Zach Braff that feels like a Garden State for grown-ups..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]

JAMES WHITE :

“..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]

THE BRONZE :

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

by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]
