Critic Reviews for Hero Mode

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (7)

  • As a heartfelt feel-good story about industrial espionage and how to win the right way, Hero Mode is charming if undemanding, and feels at least a little authentic to its milieu.

    June 5, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Its cheesy earnestness goes down relatively smoothly, and with a shout-out to Nintendo maestro Shigeru Miyamoto and an offhand reference to "Super Mario Bros.," it demonstrates that it knows its gaming stuff.

    June 4, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Teamwork makes the dream work, but Hero Mode suggests it's the latter that decides the bounds within which the former is allowed to intervene.

    June 23, 2021 | Full Review…
  • It's by no means perfect, but for the niche it's playing to, it's entertaining enough.

    June 22, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The family film Hero Mode is stuck in one mode: low-quality. This poorly written, predictable movie about a computer gaming whiz has an uneven tone that stumbles back and forth, from cringeworthy comedy to sappy melodrama.

    June 18, 2021 | Full Review…
  • This "kids can" comedy should entertain most tweens, although parents may find the amateur filmmaking trip-ups frustrating/annoying.
