Movie Reviews

  • writer and director Richard Tanne takes what sounds like a terrible idea and transforms it into a sleek, well-played romance that largely makes the cliches believable
    by Caryn James [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • Lili Reinhart and Austin Abrams shine in a romance for extra sensitive teens; For a story that leans so hard into the most cringe-worthy tropes of its genre, "Chemical Hearts" has an uncanny way of capturing the basic combustibility of teenage feelings
    Review rate : B- by David Ehrlich [IndieWire ]
  • it's hard to not at least admire Chemical Hearts for desperately wanting to shine an unconventional, dark light on love. It's a shame that it doesn't stick to those intentions beyond a handful of scenes that Lili Reinhart nails
    2 of 5 by Robert Kojder [Flickering Myth ]
  • an adaptation of Krystal Sutherland's YA novel "Our Chemical Hearts", Tanne's second film doesn't live up to the promise of his first, lacking its texture and specificity, but still offers small insights and worthy central performances
    Review rate : C by Mary Sollosi [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • a superficially sensitive teen romance; Richard Tanne's YA adaptation has trappings of maturity, but over-aestheticizes its characters' hefty emotions; For all its serious-faced surface grit, "Chemical Hearts" never quite rings true
    by Guy Lodge [Variety ]
  • a high-school story tackling a complex and painful relationship with familiar tropes riddled with cliche
    2 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • "Chemical Hearts" misses an opportunity to craft a more realistic portrayal of the teen years, which seems to be its intention, by striking an excessively melancholic tone
    3 of 5 by Jennifer Green [Common Sense Media ]
  • "Chemical Hearts" may be over-the-top melancholy at times, but also provides a raw, honest look at grief, love and the adolescent psyche
    3 of 5 by Shaena Montanari [Arizona Republic ]
  • "Chemical Hearts" is a thought-provoking film; A thoroughly engaging and heartwarming love with a difference. Excellent performances help tighten up the narrative looseness, with Lili Reinhart in particular impressing
    4 of 5 by Alex Clement [HeyUGuys ]
  • "Chemical Hearts" is a moody drama, for better or worse, and a reasonably engrossing dramatic excursion into the lugubriousness of teenage love
    by John Serba [Decider ]
