Critic Reviews for Balloon

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

  • Herbig directs every scene with an overcranked mania, accompanied by a blaring Zimmer-esque score that thinks it's part of the buildup to a Navy Seals assault on an Indian Ocean pirate ship.

  • German critics are divided with some saying it is too near the knuckle in times of political turmoil regarding reunification and immigration - but to this critic (admittedly ignorant about such things), I found it to be incredible tense and watchable.

  • It is an engrossing mixture of adventure yarn and methodical police procedural that generates moments of pulse-racing tension and captures a sense of a country where paranoia reigns and nobody can be trusted.
