Critic Reviews for Destined

  • Basir flubs his big point about fate, choices and paths - that no matter our lives, we face the chance to change for good or bad - by embracing all the clichés he can find, then filming them without nuance or style.

  • Unfortunately, the two stories add up to less than the sum of their parts, with the intertwining narratives failing to comment on each other in sufficiently resonant fashion.

  • Examining the cause and effect of a moment in time, the path not taken or road less traveled, and/or even the idea of a parallel universe, and above all, free will and choice, Qasim Basir delivers DESTINED, one of the most powerful films of the year . . .

  • [Destined is] a film as much about showing audiences our similarities beneath nature/nurture as it is the guilt and regret we carry everyday.

  • An amusing idea that runs out of steam not long after the premise is established.

    Nov 17, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Tracking one life, on two possible paths, the gloomy drama Destined derails into a rut of self-seriousness.
