Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This 'Donnie Darko Tale' is all style, no substance - a superficial imitation that retraces the original's twists and turns but offers none of its own."
‑ Rossiter Drake, San Francisco Examiner
"The entire project seems to sweat from the exertion of its writer Nathan Atkins and director Chris Fisher to do something-anything-to make the film worthwhile."
‑ Brian Holcomb, CinemaBlend.com
"It's a spineless, careless, bizarrely unadventurous number two that would rather saddle up and rehash Kelly's original screenplay over any clear-cut attempt to cook up some juicy oddities of its own."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"It's been reported that Richard Kelly has completely disowned this movie, and for good reason"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"It wants to echo the original but can't figure out the rhythms."
‑ David Cornelius, eFilmCritic.com
"I love Donnie Darko. It is ominous, funny, replete with ... well-observed moments. S. Darko is a callous attempt to cash in on its well-earned appreciation."
‑ Jordan Hoffman, UGO
"a thick, viscous sludge of clichés, stereotypes, and poorly written dialogue"
‑ Bill Gibron, Filmcritic.com
