Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A well-intentioned study of illegal immigration and its various social ramifications ultimately trips over a tangle of clunky scripting."
‑ Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
"No Turning Back is intense at its core, looking at not just the tough choices we make but the process that goes into making them."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"With juggling so many hats for an independent film, Nebot along with director/writer Julia Montejo manage to pull out all the stops and create a compelling drama with a little social message for good taste."
‑ Dennis Przywara, Film Threat
"The filmmakers simply don't possess the skills to bring off a drama that can support serious themes, thus trivializing the very concerns they are trying to bring attention to."
‑ Kevin Crust, Los Angeles Times
"It bolts out of the blocks tugging a crate full of bricks, two wrecking balls, and a cruise-ship anchor."
‑ Mark Athitakis,
"No Turning Back deserves the seven international festival awards it has earned."
‑ Cheryl DeWolfe, Apollo Guide
"Heartfelt yet overly schematic."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"Can be heavy-handed at times and the quality of the acting is all over the map. But the dilemmas depicted are real and they feel real, which gives the film a hard-edged poignancy."
‑ Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Daily News
"Nebot's passionate work as an actor in particular glues the film together."
‑ Carlo Cavagna,
