Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's simply not enough time given to any meaningful exchange of ideas."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"These conversations are fascinating ... to those of you who share the scientific view."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"There's so much of airports, taxis and trains that I was left with the thought that a message about the shortcomings of deities and church-going isn't best conveyed in conveyances."
‑ Jules Brenner, Cinema Signals
"Director Gus Holwerda does his best to add tension to the mostly tame travelogue. But damned if The Unbelievers doesn't find a few new converts."
‑ Ariel Teplitsky, Toronto Star
"A study in the frustrating insufferableness of people you probably agree with ..."
‑ Chris Packham, Village Voice
"In its reliance on sloganeering in place of substantive debate, The Unbelievers winds up being almost as insular as any dogmatic religious group. Instead of opening viewers' minds, it's just preaching to the choir."
‑ Ethan Alter, Film Journal International
"Plays like a publicity stunt for its secular stars."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"'Unbelievers' is a high-minded love fest between two deeply committed atheistic intellectuals and their rock star-like fan base."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"It ably captures the provocative open forums that Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss conduct, but its uneven nature occasionally dulls the effect of these intellectually stimulating conversations."
‑ Wes Greene, Slant Magazine
