Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The incomprehensible back story didn't dim my enjoyment much. The movie is a crackerjack audio-visual thrill ride."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"This is a very intelligent, well-plotted story - and my hunch is that we have not seen the last of our heroes."
‑ David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle
"The movie is gorgeously animated and has many powerful images and ideas."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media
"This is a gripping mystery in its own right, and even retains the original Japanese voice actors (with subtitles)."
‑ Maddy Myers, Boston Phoenix
"Fans, go be with your people. Others, approach cautiously."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"At some point you have to ask: When are fantasy fans going to tire of heroes and villains throwing bolts of energy at each other? Give it a rest already!"
‑ Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times
"Exhilarating, intelligent and compelling with plenty of surprises and dazzling animation."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"The widescreen canvas is an improvement over television's limited expanse. But if you're not among the indoctrinated, don't bother."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"Soporific exposition culminates in a visually chaotic final act that makes "Tintin'' look downright restrained."
‑ Tom Russo, Boston Globe
"The Sacred Star of Milos manages to be an entertaining and faithful expansion on the original material while being inconsequential to it."
‑ Kalvin Henely, Slant Magazine
