Critic Reviews for Mr. Nobody

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (21) | Rotten (10)

  • Never mind that several characters seem to gain or lose British accents throughout the course of the film. The lack of continuity only enhances the sense of deliciously dizzying disequilibrium.

  • As philosophy, Mr. Nobody seems sillier than it is profound. But in a parallel reality, more movies would have this degree of insane ambition.

    October 31, 2013 | Rating: B
  • At the 44-minute mark (I checked) of 'Mr. Nobody,' I loudly sighed and asked, "Good God, when the hell is this movie going to START!"

    October 31, 2013 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…
  • A thoughtful investigation into the different variations of all our lives: the daydreams, the anxious worst-case scenarios, the futile digressions that went nowhere.

    October 30, 2013 | Full Review…
  • The only truly graspable notion the film can be said to put forth is one of increasingly tedious sci-fi-romantic genre busy-ness.

    October 28, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • This big-budget English-language co-production shows that Europeans can compete in the sci-fi realm where high production values are king.

Audience Reviews for Mr. Nobody

  • Mar 25, 2020
    A nice story, perhaps, about the different directions life can take given the choices one makes, but ultimately going nowhere. Jared Leto shines, and many of the cast (particularly Sarah Polley) do as well, but they are failed by a story afraid to make its own choices. afraid to commit to one. Better than a lot, sure, but not that much better.

    Long & bizarre but ultimately entertaining.

    Mr. Nobody is a film I want to uprate since the visuals are lush and wonderful and I tend to enjoy cerebral / trippy movies. But I never got into the story. It felt wandering / meandering and did not feel like it was going anyplace. There is an excellent film in there that is waiting for an editor to bring it into existence.

    Visually superb. This existential drama about the choice we make and the ripples they have in others across time may be confusing at times but its ultimately enjoyable and rewarding once you figure it out.
