Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The spirit is willing but the filmmaking is weak in "Arise," a touchy-feely documentary with laudable dual messages of empowering women and healing the planet."
‑ Geoff Berkshire, Variety
"Slightly oversimplified, but it's equally inspiring and moving nonetheless."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"There's a sense of watching an overearnest public service message scored by the softest world-music sounds from Lilith Fair. Still, "Arise" always feels unified, a genuinely felt and executed womanist letter to the world."
‑ David DeWitt, New York Times
"Reads more as a feature-length infomercial for the many organizations it highlights-all of which are more than deserving of the attention-than a probing look at what it means to be at one with our planet in the 21st century."
‑ Michael Nordine, Village Voice
