Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Early scenes prove an exception to most of this genre du jour's tired rules, which makes it especially disappointing when the third act does little more than reinforce them."
‑ Michael Nordine, Village Voice
"No matter how creative its frames, Mr. Jones is [...] just an unimpressive stack of sticks and skulls."
‑ Noel Murray, The Dissolve
"In attempting to experiment with horror tropes and the found-footage format, director Karl Mueller tries too hard and walks away with a muddled, drastically uneven hodgepodge."
‑ Dustin Putman,
"A nature-meets-nightmare tale that unfortunately gets lost in its own thicket of tricks."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"An imperfect horror film, but it's worth a look for its atmosphere, and valiant attempts at supernatural and meta-storytelling."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"You can't really dip into dream logic if you have nary a single eye-popping visual, and in doing so, Mueller completely wastes a unique, potentially durable concept."
‑ Gabe Toro, The Playlist
"There's a shred of an interesting idea in Mr. Jones, but the film is far too unfocused, sloppy, and downright dull to leave any kind of impact."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"That it half succeeds, in spite of its cloying self-seriousness, means that it's at best a convincing copycat of a definitive expression of ego and influence in art."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
