Movie Reviews

  • Wyatt Rockefeller wisely abandons the fantasy of settling Mars in favor of contemplating the very real complications posed by life on an unestablished, uninhabited planet
    by Rhonda Racha Penrice [The Wrap ]
  • there is life on Mars and it's a godawful small affair, according to this determinedly sombre sci-fi film
    2 of 5 by Larushka Ivan-Zadeh [Times (UK) ]
  • in the ranks of cinematic journeys to Mars, "Settlers" ranks among the less fancifully and lavishly invented, yet it's all the more effective for its earthly restraint: You can change the planet, but humanity stays pretty much the same
    by Guy Lodge [Variety ]
  • despite being mostly bleak and slow-burning, Wyatt Rockefeller's debut feature keeps the tension high and manages to illicit a sense of dread around every corner of the stark, claustrophobic setting
    3 of 5 by Kat Halstead [Common Sense Media ]
  • an interesting sci-fi western in a starkly pessimistic vein, with an audaciously developed narrative and nice performances; all in all, the work of someone serious about cinema; "Settlers" isn't perfect; But it's a quietly impressive piece of work
    3 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • an elegiac and haunting but ultimately underwhelming and mystifying sci-fi mood piece; it's a well-made film; Ultimately, though, Settlers is more about setting a mood and painting a picture of hopelessness than explaining what happened before the story
    2.5 of 4 by Richard Roeper [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • "Settlers" is a pessimistic sci-fi yarn about the limitations of human nature; "Settlers" allows for weighty themes to play out inside a cramped domestic setting, wary of easy answers or moral platitudes
    2.5 of 4 by William Repass [Slant Magazine ]
