Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film soon traffics in "Babel"-style cultural crises and melodrama. Still, as a tale of parental desperation and the cost of conscience, "Inhale" comes from a thought-provoking place."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"All of the beatings, betrayals and bitter ironies leave a bad taste in your head."
‑ Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"...an inherently compelling premise..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A pedestrian thriller that suffers from implausibility, an overbearing musical score and excessive style over substance."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"Well-done, exciting and intelligent, that rare thriller with a mind and purpose."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"Milks the very real problem of "organ tourism" for all the melodrama and car chases it's worth."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"It takes a while to get there, but Inhale eventually emerges as a tense and morally complex thriller with a devastating twist."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"An action packed film increasingly offering more and larger dilemmas, director Baltasar Kormakur's film sets itself off for one big payoff..."
‑ John Esther, UR Chicago Magazine
"Inhale manages little more than a gesture toward untying its bundled moral knots."
‑ Michelle Orange, Movieline
"How Robert Rodriguez's Machete might have looked played with a straight face ... a silly exploitation thriller that confuses itself for an artful message movie."
‑ Geoff Berkshire, Metromix.com
"Filmed in a semi-documentary style, it fitfully aspires to moral seriousness."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"It's neither remotely convincing as true-to-life drama or lurid and propulsive enough to work as exploitation. It's just bad."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"The film's final moments are still a sock to the gut, but the central dilemma would have been more acute had some of the details been left to imagination."
‑ Annlee Ellingson, Moving Pictures Magazine
"If there's an upside here, it's salt-and-pepper stud Mulroney."
‑ Paul Brunick, Slant Magazine
"This is not the feel good movie of the year, but it certainly is a potent flick that will have you thinking."
‑ JimmyO, iamROGUE
