Critic Reviews for Akron

All Critics (5) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (2)

  • Akron, the minimalistic yet affecting indie drama, is titled after the fifth largest city in Ohio, which is of course the setting of this poignant little film about family, young love and ghosts from the past.

    Sep 15, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Though talent is clearly evident, Akron's writing is unfortunately offset by the flow of its direction.

    Apr 4, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The best and worst thing about the movie is that you could probably change Benny and Christopher to a heterosexual couple and not have to change a single line of the screenplay.

    Feb 14, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Though with an unimaginative score, Akron effectively tells a story about two gay men who meet and fall in love in Midwestern America.

    Apr 13, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Akron is a nice try at normalizing gay romance, but the filmmaking needs the erotic and spiritual masculine energy of great gay cinema.
