Though the mumblecore esthetic is familiar and the movie's ultimate impact slight, the filmmakers do find a fresh and modestly amusing twist by tossing their hipster out of his natural habitat.

Explores the limits of cultural isolation with ramshackle avidity.

Like its hapless hero, Wah Do Dem simply mopes along before aimlessly stumbling to a halt.

Methinks we're meant to actually feel sorry for this overprivileged twerp in neon sunglasses.

The immediacy of the filmmaking helps to fill the void, and Bones' unaffected performance has its moments.

Slight but winning and often funny, the scrappy Amerindie Wah Do Dem is a fish-out-of-water comedy driven by Sean "Bones" Sullivan's offbeat performance.

It's impossible not to like this small-budget road movie...

This is London

This scruffy and offhanded comedy-drama has a certain realistic charm that keeps us smiling all the way trough. It's a cleverly made film with a story that continually moves forward, taking us on an enjoyable series of adventures.

Impressively directed and nicely observed, this is a scruffily charming indie drama with an engaging central performance from Sean Bones.

Made for a mere $75,000, the film's a wry portrait of an American out of his environment and out of his depth...

Daily Mirror [UK]

An unusual American indie, not without interest but strangely passionless and forgettable.

August 26, 2010 Full Review Source: Guardian

In this slacker road movie, myth and politics are packaged as an engagingly chilled-out series of culture-clash misadventures.

August 26, 2010 Full Review Source: Film4

Has breathtaking scenery, but it's a lazy, meandering and unimaginative adventure with a poorly developed, frustratingly na´ve and dull protagonist.

Wah do dem? 'Dem a loot, dem a shoot, dem a wail!' in shanty towns as the late Desmond Dekker might say, since the harder they come, they harder they apparently still fall.

Wah Do Dem is a brief, peripatetic love letter to Jamaican tropes scrawled on hemp stationary.
