Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Aside from the fact that each cast member employs a different style of acting, this is drably shot (Ibiza looks like Clacton), slackly edited and detached from any recognisable reality."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"One is struck virtually dumb by a screenplay that looks as if written on the back of an envelope."
‑ Derek Malcolm, This is London
"Some solid scenes but it's never quite sure if it's 24 Hour Party People or Control, and doesn't get close to either."
‑ Eve Barlow, Empire Magazine
"There's a dull excursion to Ibiza where a suicide and much drug-taking ensue, and a climactic sequence shot on location at the V festival in Suffolk."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"It's cliched and leaden, and moves with all the speed and manoeuvrability of a submarine in treacle."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"This indie drama puts its best foot forward, only to strut face-first through every cliché in the genre."
‑ Jonathan Crocker, Total Film
"Last month, I reckoned Horrid Henry was a shoo-in for worst film of the year. Compared to Powder, however, it looks like The Battleship Potemkin."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"Great movies about bands certainly do exist. Powder isn't one of them, though."
‑ Sukhdev Sandhu, Daily Telegraph
