It gives the impression that the project is conclude before screenplay studies and some quality control that could solve the mistakes. [Full Review in Spanish]

Sadly, the interesting cyberpunk backdrop isn't paired with a story that delivers any excitement, suspense or thrills to speak of.

Skarsgård is a fine actor, but between his lack of spoken dialogue and a character written with as much personality as the bedpost he wields in combat, he's seldom engaging.

Duncan Jones tried to make something compelling with Mute... but his movie is just a disappointing mess. [Full review in Spanish]
February 16, 2019
We're honestly trying to offer something constructive and work out what went wrong with Mute. Maybe Jones just needs to put down the pen, stay behind the camera, and keep an eye on the big picture.

But every time a writer-director with the name recognition of Jones delivers a work of this level, it only serves to prove those risk-averse studio executives right.
August 24, 2018
Slow and listless, lacking tension or a sense of danger, it's a pastiche with aspirations to being a movie that ends up a very expensive pageant.
April 19, 2018
"Mute" is by no means unwatchable, but ultimately inspires us to re-watch the movies that inspired it.
March 31, 2018
One of those frustrating movies that starts off well and gradually goes off the rails. And after a two hour investment, it delivers a spectacularly underwhelming payoff.
March 19, 2018
What could've been a dark and emotional whodunnit instead feels viscerally clipped and not particularly worthy of the clear effort that's been made building this beautiful world.
March 13, 2018
The whole film is populated by people you don't believe or care at all about, behaving in ways that don't make sense against a cheap-looking sci-fi-by-numbers backdrop
March 9, 2018
As a production project it was, apparently, stuck in "development hell" for more than a decade. Sometimes projects are stuck in development hell for a reason.

... languishes to extremes... [Full review in Spanish]

Something in this material clearly spoke to Duncan Jones. But whatever that was is lost in translation.
March 2, 2018
It's a particularly disappointing misfire from the man that gave us the low-key masterpiece of Moon, and yet another nail in the coffin of Netflix as a destination for quality original films.
March 2, 2018
Mute is pretty meh but gets points for randomness.
March 2, 2018
Struggles in the shadow of its influences, however endearing they may be, and fails to leverage the sum of its parts into something worthwhile.
March 1, 2018
Mute is let down by a weak and bland script. Hopefully his next endeavour focuses more on story and less on dated Tarantino-style humour and sexist objectification.
March 1, 2018
Goes from a mildly arresting detective tale, a future noir, to pure ugliness, stretching on for what becomes an interminable two hours.
February 28, 2018
Netflix, being new to the game and eager to build relationships, is awfully indulgent with filmmakers, but a studio president would have told Jones to throw this half-baked script back in the oven.
