Critic Reviews for Comet

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (15) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (18)

  • Handsome but needlessly gimmicky.

    July 2, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A sense of laborious, futile strain comes off this phoney-baloney indie, which looks and sounds very much like an attempt to fashion a more amenable (and thereby saleable) version of Shane Carruth's puzzle pictures.

  • Just when you think you're about to fall for this fuzzy sci-fi romance, it disappears into its own navel.

    June 30, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The complex machinations of the concept become confusing at times but this is still an ambitious and promising debut.

  • Justin Long is a fine actor, but you have to like him a lot to get through "Comet," Sam Esmail's trippy, overly mannered romance.

    December 18, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Watching a not-very-interesting couple break up is one thing; watching them break up and get back together numerous times in different universes and dimensions is, well ... to paraphrase "Jaws," I'm going to need a bigger popcorn bag.

Audience Reviews for Comet

  • Mar 02, 2017
    Justin Long and Emmy Rossum try very hard to sell Comet's zippy, phony script and misguided conceit, however, if the film is somewhat poignant in its depiction of modern relationships, it is also thin and overwrought, never feeling quite real enough to believe. Rating: 51

    "This is not a dream." Or is it? Comet is a remarkably compelling existential film that explores the nature of love, art, and dreams. Set in a parallel universe and told nonlinearly, the film follows a couple throughout various points in their relationship. At first it can be kind of a mindtrip trying to figure out what's going on, but after a while things start to click. Emmy Rossum and Justin Long give excellent performances, and the directing style is quite interesting; particularly in how it transitions between time periods. Also, the writing is really clever, with witty dialog that's surprisingly deep at times. Wonderfully enchanting, Comet is an incredibly passionate and artistic film.

    just one of those films that clicked with me. the acting is faultless and the cinematography is amazing. not without its flaws, the pacing for one but I can avoid when the dialogue and direction are this impressive. very interested why the critics disliked this one.

    Well made and interesting movie, but can't say I loved it. The female lead I found grating and downright harsh to look at and Justin Long, though I don't mind him, looks rough too. His stoner guy character wasn't someone you would overly feel for, which is fine, since I couldn't stand her either, but you know, bit of a problem when a movie is a romantic drama and you don't care about the couple. The ending was just fine for me, but I did feel like I wasted my time and 99c renting this.
