Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Struggles heroically, but unsuccessfully, to strike a balance between whimsy and pathos."
‑ Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Something clicks here. Physically as well as verbally, these kids are speaking their own language."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"It's a film that asks potent questions about important topics, but will first and foremost charm viewers with its oddball humour and romanticism. Griff the Invisible is a treat."
‑ Glenn Dunks, Onya Magazine
"I'm all for ambiguity in films, but it doesn't feel like writer/director Leon Ford left Griff and his underlying issues vague on purpose."
‑ Matt Singer,
"There are moments of pure magic when we actually feel ourselves letting go of the limitations of the real world and find ourselves -- if only for a fleeting moment -- believing in Griff's world."
‑ Beth Accomando,
"Griff seems a little too psychologically damaged to laugh at. On the other hand, for a drama, his behavior is way too silly to take seriously."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"The touches of magical realism begin to feel gimmicky. By the final frame, this romance never feels real enough."
‑ Ethan Gilsdorf, Boston Globe
"Griff The Invisible explores the personal angle of vigilante justice, adding a unique spin to the superhero genre with heartfelt moments and relatability."
‑ Emily Estep, We Got This Covered
"I'd take 10 more Green Lanterns over one more wannabe-superhero flick."
‑ Tricia Olszewski, Washington City Paper
"First-time director Leon Ford has the Australian shaggy dog comedy style down pat; now he just needs an empowering idea."
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix
"It tries too hard to be eccentric, kooky. So hard, it can be downright annoying."
‑ Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer
"A superhero wannabe fights the forces of loneliness and alienation in this uneven Aussie indie."
‑ Megan Lehmann, Hollywood Reporter
"It's shaggy, but its modest charms make up for that."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"Mopey-but-sweet Australian entry in the Kick-Ass homemade superhero sweepstakes."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
"Something about this feature never ignites."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
