Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A loving, if one-note, recreation of a very particular kind of bygone cinematic experience."
‑ William Goss, MSN Movies
"An acid-washed cornucopia of action and laughs. Short, silly, and superbly crafted with next to no money, Manborg is a delight."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"The colour scheme is garish and nausea-inducing but somehow Manborg is endearingly lo-fi DIY entertainment and Kostanski should be applauded for what he's achieved on this minimal budget."
‑ Henry Northmore, The List
"Too bad the story sags, although the padding is a riot."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Manborg works first and foremost by being genuinely, legitimately funny."
‑ Matt Looker,
"Manborg is massively cheap, outrageous, and features a lot of overacting but it's also incredibly amusing with ridiculous gore and animation. It's like an homage to your childhood that you can't help but love and hate at the same time."
‑ Chris Sawin,
"There's no escaping the sense that this is a fun idea for a short stretched out to feature length. The joke has worn thin long before the end."
‑ Will Salmon, SFX Magazine
