Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Sets an intriguing low-key thriller into motion, then proceeds to resolve it in the most uninspired way possible."
‑ Scott Von Doviak, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/
"Adds a layer of irony as the director makes one beginner's mistake after another -- revealing Schwab's own learning curve to be quite steep."
‑ Robert K. Elder, Chicago Tribune
"One of the cooler things about being required to watch lots of movies "sight unseen" is that occasionally something unexpectedly entertaining pops up."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Oh, that script by Mr. Schwab! As Cajun comic Justin Wilson says, 'He doesn't miss one damn inch of that road.'"
‑ Jane Sumner, Dallas Morning News
"uncharacteristically ambitious aims for a film that otherwise looks like nothing more than cheap exploitation thriller"
‑ Dragan Antulov, Draxblog Movie Reviews
‑ Christopher Null,
"The Learning Curve may not offer anything new, but it has terrific vitality."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Good, flashy visuals, but writer/ director Eric Schwab still has a long way to go in applying a strong story with characters that matter."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Apollo Guide
"The movie's all flash and formula, as original as the letter A."
‑ Robert Wilonsky, New Times
