Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a picture with the ambitions of a Billy Elliot but the execution of an August Rush."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"The predictability is draining, hurting the lasting impact of this strange tale of unlikely musicianship. However, there's a curious spirit to the feature that makes it something to enjoy."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"Broken Hill, with its picture-postcard shots of the vast Outback, looks good and fills a niche for families."
‑ Cary Darling, Dallas Morning News
"For all its flaws and despite the limiting premise, this music-themed drama works better than it should."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Pleasant in a flavored-rice-cakes kind of way."
‑ Justin Strout, Orlando Weekly
"A hopelessly cliche-ridden tale that wouldn't be out of place on a family-oriented cable channel but is several sizes too small for the big screen."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
