All Critics (32) | Top Critics (10)

Overall, the message is an inspiring one, of racial and class equality, spiritual freedom, and discovering the power that lies within.

The intentions are honorable, for sure, but the execution is awkward, not just visually but tonally.

Just who is "Bilal" for?

February 2, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Where Bilal exceeds in animation and direction, it lacks in entertaining, cohesive story, possibly owing to either the directors' desire to remain accurate to Muslim texts or the huge span of time they are trying to cover in a single movie.

Top Critic

Suffers from a confusing narrative and a style of computer animation that blurs the lines between the real and the animated in a way that evokes the discomfiting artifice of "The Polar Express."

"Bilal: A Brand New Breed of Hero" took forever to get here, and probably will be missed by the masses. It deserved a better fate.
