[Nathan], who co-wrote the clever, resourceful and at times darkly wry script with Lukas Kendall, effectively combines the eclectic footage (kudos to editor Tony Randel) to form a kicky, highly involving narrative.

New York Times

A sorry-looking found-footage thriller as unconvincing as its characters' thrashing orgasms.

Two contrived things, found-footage and porn, combine to create a flick that is distasteful and downright disgusting in so many ways.

Peter Labuza

None of the murders is particularly well staged (the sound effects feel distinctly off), yielding little in the way of suspense.

The NC-17-rated Lucky Bastard uses the found footage gimmick to surprisingly strong effect, and it give a refreshingly frank view of the porn industry, but eventually steeps into moralizing and tut-tutting that left a very sour taste in my mouth.

Less exploitative and a bit smarter than its seedy adult-film setting would suggest.

The film is most successful when humanizing the people behind the objectification, with lives beyond the smut.
