Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Simon DaVison's loopy labour of love succeeds where other offerings of pure homage (most recently 'Grindhouse') failed."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"The cheerfully weird plot and hilariously bad acting are all part of the film's self mockery, which betrays a love for the genre's cheesy roots."
‑ Danny Bangs, Little White Lies
"Dull and dreary despite DeVison's enthusiasm, take heart in remembering the chances of catching Captain Eager on a big screen are nil."
‑ Rob Daniel, Sky Movies
"In the end there is something rather depressing about a film willing itself to be so crappy."
‑ Cath Clarke, Guardian
"This kind of thing has been done before and it's been done better, too."
‑ Ellen E Jones, Total Film
"Terrible, just terrible."
‑ Dan Jolin, Empire Magazine
"The kind of quirky labour of love I feel guilty for bashing."
‑ Wendy Ide, Times [UK]
"Lacking gags, proper characters or any comprehensible plot, it never rises above a one-joke movie - and that joke's on us. It's humour Jim, but not as we know it."
‑ Jamie Russell,
"Simon DaVison gets the charmingly clunky look and feel of 1950s SF spot on - but he also captures the genre's more tedious shortcomings a little too accurately for the average viewer's patience to bear."
‑ Anton Bitel, Film4
