The most Wes Anderson-ish film Wes Anderson has ever made, 'Moonrise Kingdom' won't convert any naysayers to the cause, but fans of his work will have a ball.

Moonrise Kingdom, which the director wrote with regular collaborator Roman Coppola, feels like his most emotionally honest work since his 1998 breakthrough, Rushmore.

It's not my favourite Wes Anderson film but I do like it very much.

His singular take on young love on the run from any sort of authority has moments of sheer oddness, but it's all of a piece with his other work and you are either an Anderson fan or you're not.

Sydney Morning Herald

There are many echoes of Anderson's earlier films, particularly Rushmore and Tenenbaums. He's an unapologetic romantic and Moonrise Kingdom is a study in wish-fulfillment.

Let the haters hate, but Anderson continues to build a distinctive filmography on par with any of his contemporaries.

Most will happily accept, and be truly enraptured by what unfolds.

Moonrise Kingdom is an extremely sweet and heartfelt portrayal of young love and how such love inspires the lives of others who encounter it.

A hit of nostalgia in 50 shades of brown

Around the time of his disappointing and detached The Life Aquatic, I wondered if Wes could still tell real stories. He can. His way. That is all we can ever ask of a filmmaker.

A complex set of cinematic pleasures, ranging from its vibrant, eccentric visual presentation to its deadpan humour and superb performances. Oh, and the music!

The brush strokes are uniquely Anderson
August 24, 2012
It's a collection of cockeyed ideas compressed into a narrative that's utterly devoid of any actual attachment.

As detached as the filmmaking sometimes appears, I daresay you can feel something pure coming off of the screen. Moonrise Kingdom is a stellar film.

Summer lovin' just got a whole more stylish thanks to Wes Anderson.

Quirky, random, and surprisingly endearing for a Wes Anderson film--likely his best.
Full Review | Original Score: B

American Profile
July 22, 2012
Funny, touching, sweet and drenched in '60s nostalgia, but reverberating with distant, haunting echoes of adolescent longing for practically anyone who grew up anytime, anyplace, anywhere.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

"Moonrise Kingdom" is the type of movie that is charming for the soul and makes your brain happy in the process. All in all, it's just a heartfelt and well-written experience that will appeal to everyone.

These charming kids give "Moonrise Kingdom" the warm glow of a summer fairy-tale, one you'll want to hear again.
