Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An auspicious feature debut demonstrating its helmer's ability to sustain an intense but understated mood, Andrew Currie's Mile Zero plows familiar ground in an unfamiliar way."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"...elevated considerably by [star Michael] Riley's central performance, which is often far more compelling and intriguing than anything else in the film."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"[An] uneven but powerful B.C. indie by first-time director Andrew Currie."
‑ Jason Anderson, eye WEEKLY
"Admirable but claustrophobic."
‑ Ray Conlogue, Globe and Mail
"one of those movies with good direction and vision, rock-solid acting, and no distribution"
‑ Norm Schrager, Filmcritic.com
"Michael Riley is entirely believable as Derek. Sabrina Grdevich has a small but crucial role as the ex-wife, and she and Connor Widdows, who plays Will, are perfectly cast."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
"In its rawness, Mile Zero can be brutal to watch, but it has an emotional honesty found in too few dramas."
‑ Josh Ralske, All Movie Guide
"By-the-book story structure and safe drama seem like desperate pleading for international distribution."
‑ , Film Threat
"A challenging, extraordinarily complex movie."
‑ Eugene Novikov, Film Blather
