Critic Reviews for Code 8

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (16) | Rotten (4)

  • Humorless but unpretentious, the film will play well with those seeking new takes on superhero tropes... while others will resent having a still-viable non-comics genre infected by angsty mutants.

  • Essentially a humbler, grungier indie "X-Men" without the same dependence on splashy effects, "Code 8" is a solid genre effort from director Jeff Chan.

    December 12, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The ideas outpace the action in a movie that's clearly been made with passion and intelligence, but without the kind of zip that this kind of story demands.

    December 6, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Chan does a good job balancing the action with ideas, effortlessly mixing and matching real word and sci fi elements to create a movie that has enough to say about the fear of diversity and tolerance to earn a look.

    January 30, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Tight for what it was. It's not going to rock your world...but viewers should begrudgingly admit that they had a good time with this. Despite some obvious problems, it's enjoyable.

    May 11, 2020 | Full Review…
  • I saw the effort, even within the cliched crime story...they were actually trying to do something, and I appreciated that.

Audience Reviews for Code 8

  • Dec 30, 2019
    I thought the trailer made Code 8 look like it was gonna be pretty bad, but I liked the premise, and I wanted to see what Stephen Amell could do in a 2019 feature film, so I gave it a chance, and while I don't think it was great, it was better than I had been expecting. There were some bits that sort of reminded me of last year's Darkest Minds, and that's definitely a bad thing, but overall it was actually pretty decent. It goes for both the social commentary, and a *pew pew splodey zap zap* action crime thriller. It doesn't work spectacularly as either, but it tries, and its failures certainly are not abysmal ones.

    A nice Canadian sci-fi about a society that fears mutants (sound familiar?) only taken to a wee bit of an extreme in that they're treated like blacks are treated in the United States nowadays: with suspicion. How to live decently in the face of all that hatred? In this story our anti-hero is forced into a life of crime given societal attitudes...will he choose to embrace a society that fears and hates him? Can he? What about his poor sick dying mama? And the technically advanced police force, could they be more, er, sadistic? Yes, a touch heavy-handed, but not entirely boring.
