The Press Reviews

  • There's too little narrative cohesion or persuasive subtext to make this much more than a low-budget folly that's outre without always being terribly interesting. Full Review

  • The film enunciates its raw themes - punk means individuality! the aliens are all about conformity! - but never begins to figure out how to embody those themes in a narrative that could lure in the audience. Full Review

  • The director's lost and his panic is contagious. Full Review

  • The film looks dreadful, and the CG effects are a legitimate eyesore: An opening animated sequence is so tacky, it took me a while before I realized it wasn't just another logo animation for a random film fund. Full Review

  • The cinematic energy that permeated the screen in both 'Hedwig' and its follow-up, the oft-forgotten 'Shortbus', is completely missing here. Full Review
