Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A well-made, inspirational effort that beautifully conveys its period and milieu."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Overriding any such quibbles is Dupuis' utterly immersed performance and the film's sheer visual beauty. Aside from director Binamé's other talents, he actually makes hockey play comprehensible."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"Fans of Maurice Richard will find "The Rocket" exhilarating and moving."
‑ Angela Baldassarre, Sympatico.ca
"Every bit as single-minded as its French-Canadian protagonist, pic drowns a potentially interesting story in careful literalism and elaborate period detail."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"Sure, it has all of the elements of an underdog tale that has been done time and time again, but it ultimately becomes so much more."
‑ Adam Schubak, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"There's not much, finally, to lift this thing above its necessarily niche appeal."
‑ Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
"The film may move Montrealers but will excite few others."
‑ Donald J. Levit, Film Threat
