Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Rod Steiger does what he can to anchor this slightly dreary and depressing film version of Ray Bradbury's The Illustrated Man."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Interesting if not totally successful adaptation of Bradbury's stories."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Uma antologia mal disfarçada de unidade narrativa, o filme é terrivelmente datado e conta com um ritmo irregular, desperdiçando o material original de Bradbury."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"A peculiar sci-fi film that was loosely adapted from a Ray Bradbury book of short stories."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"...sporadically interesting but mostly dull."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
