Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Lacks the emotional anchor of other Mexican cinema."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Suffers from a seesawing tone, a plot that's less wacky than loony, and a taciturn hero so disagreeable, self-centered, brusque and ungrateful that you're rooting for him to lose."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"[Arroyuelo and Camil] are enjoyable, so is Martha Higareda as Claudio's patient girlfriend, though the coming of the band is treated like Jesus returning with the Beatles."
‑ David Elliott, San Diego Union-Tribune
"U2, notoriously tight with the rights to their music and image, were reportedly so impressed by the script that they allowed their music and some concert footage to be used for very cheap. They got gypped."
‑ Ernest Hardy, L.A. Weekly
"There's virtually no story in the movie, at least none that isn't utterly, completely predictable."
‑ Jim Hemphill, Reel.com
"Bono need not appear in a film for his massive-sized ego to be felt."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"Has no sense of its own ridiculousness."
‑ Robert Koehler, Variety
"U2-focused film isn't even better than the real thing. Not by a long shot."
‑ Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Daily News
"It's certainly not a bad film, but one that could have benefited from some surprises to help make it stand out even more from the usual, gritty offerings of Mexican cinema."
‑ Collin Souter, eFilmCritic.com
