Critic Reviews for Dying to Survive

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (1)

  • Though it could have done with tighter editing in several scenes that linger too long after getting their messages across, "Survive" earns the tears many viewers will have shed...

    August 16, 2019 | Full Review…
  • I'd have an easier time accepting the trite, asked-and-answered conclusions that director Muye Wen and co-writers Jianu Han and Wei Zhong lead viewers to if they were more adept at tugging at viewers' heart-strings.

    August 9, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Wen and his co-writers Han Jianv and Zhong Wei... use humor to sweeten the pill of tragedy, and so enroll much bigger audiences than with a straight melodrama.

    May 31, 2019 | Full Review…
  • ...vitality and humanity, coupled with a universally engaging premise...

    November 18, 2019 | Rating: 15/20 | Full Review…
  • Dying is still remarkable for frankly addressing a serious issue from the ground up.

    September 19, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It is a comedy that invites laughter. It is a drama that inspires sorrow. It is a political statement that provokes rage.
