Movie Reviews

  • Wilson and Hayek star in a conceited mess of a movie with a guessable finish; a silly and tiresome sci-fi fantasy-mystery from Mike Cahill; Every syllable of action, as we grind towards the broadly guessable finish, is jeopardy-free and interest-free
    1 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • there's an engaging earnestness to it which sits side-by-side with a larky spirit of trial and error, almost like a choose-your-own-adventure fantasy where wild elements of chance keep dropping into the mix; the whole thing's strangely charming
    3 of 5 by Tim Robey [Daily Telegraph (UK) ]
  • Mike Cahill takes earnest stabs at big ideas and themes, including the concept of "bliss," but never clearly or cogently enough to draw us in on an emotional or intellectual level
    by Gary Goldstein [The Guardian ]
  • even the worst simulation would have more clarity than this. Life might be messy and weird and scary, but it possesses more honesty than this cinematic misery
    Review rate : D+ by Kate Erbland [IndieWire ]
  • director Mike Cahill commits to creating a rich, expansive world, then fails to find anything meaningful within it
    2 of 5 by Clarisse Loughrey [Independent (UK) ]
  • an ambitious sci-fi romance that lacks cohesion; Caught between being a thought-provoking, visually striking sci-fi romance, Bliss struggles with bringing these two concepts together cohesively
    2 of 5 by Mae Abdulbaki [ScreenRant ]
  • although even after watching "Bliss", you may not be sure. As with both of his previous works, the filmmaker delivers an undeniably ambitious mind-bender that bites off more than it can narratively chew
    by Frank Scheck [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • a promising premise gets a dull, lead-footed treatment; little more than a listless "Matrix" retread, minus the spectacle and the suspense
    by Andrew Barker [Variety ]
  • "Bliss" is a strikingly impressive visual feast; from one reality to the other, trippy mind-bender keeps us guessing. Owen Wilson, Salma Hayek show extra layers in the entertaining Amazon journey between worlds
    3 of 4 by Richard Roeper [Chicago Sun-Times ]
