Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Even if it is too brief to do more than touch on some very, very big questions, the film is an entertaining survey of the many ways we humans imprint the material world with our sincerest hopes and daffiest delusions."
‑ Jason Anderson, Globe and Mail
"It's clear we're to embark on a quest for mana, but it's worth noting that the Maori grins mischievously during his spiel, suggesting the whole concept has an element of humour."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
"Mana -- Beyond Belief doesn't have narration, which is one of the film's strengths."
‑ Jonathan Curiel, San Francisco Chronicle
"Mana offers no answers, just observations."
‑ David Cornelius,
"The medium is also the message: the film itself has mana, offering "a gateway into a whole realm of knowledge," material and spiritual."
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"a sometimes lyrical, sometimes disturbing, sometimes piquant, and sometimes wacky show-and-tell of what holds sway over the psyche of individuals and groups"
‑ Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews
