Critic Reviews for At First Light

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5)

  • The actors, a pronounced sense of setting, and Stone's impressive style results in a film that's more memorable than most cynically tossed off young-adult cash grabs.

  • Pellerin and Scott are such deeply compelling performers that you are likely to forgive the familiarity of the lovers-on-the-run, first-contact narratives.

    Sep 27, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Stone's movie is one of the most frustrating kinds to run into while covering a festival comprised of upcoming filmmakers, the calling card project.

    Mar 19, 2018 | Full Review…
  • "First Light" doesn't invent anything new, per se, but somehow, in splicing elements from other movies, it fails to achieve the emotional core of its own formula.

  • Lacking the flash of big-budget blockbusters or the originality of a uniquely imagined world instead leaves First Light trying to make the best of overly familiar sci-fi themes.

    Mar 12, 2018 | Full Review…
  • At First Light isn't a lousy sci-fi picture; its worst offence is taking up time better spent watching movies that leave lasting impressions.
