Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Land of Hope tends to shout from a soapbox what little new it has to say, but it does boast some fine performances (especially from Natsuyago Isao as the family patriarch) and the odd poetic touch that speaks louder than any words."
‑ Anton Bitel, Film4
"The subject is one for indignation and urgency. But despite straightforward no-frills treatment in 'The Land of Hope,' nothing rises above the predictable ordinary."
‑ Donald J. Levit, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"Too much of the film works too well to even consider marking it as a failure, but this is one seriously erratic movie."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
