The greatest meta movie about a killer tire ever made.
The killer tire concept is great and the bizarre humor works very well, making this a wholly enjoyable film.
| Original Score: 8/10
This is a movie about how watching movies is stupid.

Rubber won't be everyone's cup of tea, but as curios go, it's among the more watchable movies about killer tyres you're likely to see this year.
| Original Score: 4/5
The 82-minute film feels a bit stretched, but not as much as you'd expect with a premise this odd.
| Original Score: B+
a hipster movie, affectedly exhausted and cocksure with no justification for it. And like anything hipster, you sort of want to kick it in the teeth.
| Original Score: 0.5/4
The result is something akin to Luis Bunuel or Samuel Beckett making a 70s exploitation film.
| Original Score: 6/10
Audicious and wonderfully offbeat ... it's a fun one to talk about -- if only for the opportunity to shake your head in amused disbelief at what you just saw.

This movie is totally fantastic.

The amplified sound effects and the remarkable mobility displayed by Bob without resorting to computer-enhanced special effects are the film's greatest strengths. If you have 82 minutes to kill, you may derive a...

Your enjoyment of French filmmaker Quentin's Dupieux's movie depends in large part on your capacity to enjoy the absurd. I enjoyed it quite a bit.
Spielberg announced his arrival with a killer truck. By making us believe in a thinking tire, Dupieux has outdone him. Appropriately, in this film's parting shot, the Hollywood sign beckons.
If you see only one film this year about a psychokinetic tire that roams the dusty American southwest exploding the heads of those get in his way, it should definitely be Quentin Dupieux's Rubber.
Look at it this way, it's the first movie ever to dare to pose the question, 'If a killer tire explodes your head and there's no one there to see it, has it really happened?'
Kitschy is a good word to describe Rubber, a film that will garner love it or hate it responses from its audience.
Holy Luis Bunuel. Not nearly as clever as it thinks it is, "Rubber," a movie about movies from French musician/writer/director Quentin Dupieux, would have worked much better as a short.
Rubber will undoubtedly be the best film about a round, hollow serial killer released this year.
| Original Score: B
If "Rubber'' was half as smart as it is clever, we might be talking gonzo midnight four-star classic here.
Surprisingly watchable for a one-joke time-waster.
Part slasher-movie spoof, part self-reflexive Theater of the Absurd.
