Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The Hawkins brothers derive captivating performances from their talented central trio, and the sense of place and complicated character interplay proves very engrossing."
‑ Josh Slater-Williams, The Skinny
"The degree to which We Gotta Get Out of This Place eventually peters out is, to put it mildly, rather disappointing..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The Hawkins Brothers keep things moving at a decent pace over its efficient 90 minute running time, generating a suitably tense atmosphere throughout."
‑ Matthew Turner, The List
"Gorgeously photographed, the Hawkins' film has a functionality to their work that doesn't add too many unnecessary flourishes, but it exudes a grace that elevates what might have been purely cliched material to something more special."
‑ Todd Gilchrist, The Playlist
"We Gotta Get Out of This Place is screenwriter Dutch Southern's first produced script, and please God, don't let it be his last. From the grimy atmosphere of the town, to the bravura of his raw and untouchable dialogue - he's a wizard of words and mood."
‑ Chase Whale, Film Threat
