Movie Reviews

  • Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley are solid enough; but they're left undernourished by a script that never bothers to give either of them the vaguest of characterisation and so a dynamic between the pair never really materialises
    2 of 5 by Benjamin Lee [The Guardian ]
  • Tom Holland & Daisy Ridley can't save messy narrative execution; There are minimal bursts of potential lurking in "Chaos Walking"'s messy execution, but it doesn't deliver much but stagnant characters and dull action
    2.5 of 5 by Mae Abdulbaki [ScreenRant ]
  • sound and fury signifying nothing interesting; Maybe genre fans starved for large-scale sci-fi will find some appeal in the joyless journey. I couldn't get past the tiresome premise of men quite literally airing their insecurities
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • it stars Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley, who are smart and watchable, and the movie does get better as it goes along; But annoying, depressing and repulsive are all qualities that are hard to overlook..
    1 of 4 by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • Doug Liman delivers action with a high-concept hook - we can hear everything the characters are thinking - that quickly wears out its welcome
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • despite the considerable talents of director Doug Liman and cast members Tom Holland, Daisy Ridley.., this adaptation of the young adult science fiction novel, is sunk by the nearly unwatchable and unlistenable execution of the main premise
    1.5 of 4 by Richard Roeper [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • although its difficult birth has left a few large holes in the plot, it's an intriguing confection of Hollywood genres -- an unlikely union of dystopian thriller, old-fashioned Western and moral tale
    3.5 of 5 by Sandra Hall [Sydney Morning Herald ]
  • "Chaos Walking" only scratches the surface of its fascinating premise; Beneath its perfectly entertaining surface, the film is a mess of contradictions that fails to live up to its own potential
    2 of 4 by William Repass [Slant Magazine ]
  • "Chaos Walking" is a disaster, a sci-fi calamity that casts serious doubt on the starpower of Tom Holland and his capabilities outside of his Spidey suit
    Review rate : D- by Adam Graham [Detroit News ]
  • "Chaos Walking" has no time for any thoughts that might complicate its ultra-bland hero's journey; "Chaos Walking" should've been the weirdest sci-fi blockbuster since "Cloud Atlas," but this YA adaptation is too afraid of its own ideas
    Review rate : C- by David Ehrlich [IndieWire ]
