Critic Reviews for Operation Avalanche

All Critics (62) | Top Critics (22) | Fresh (43) | Rotten (19)

  • "Operation Avalanche" is an inventive grab-bag of a film, a movie about making a movie that no one was supposed to know was a movie at all.

    October 1, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • That's one small step for Apollo 11 hoaxers, one giant leap for Matt Johnson.

    September 30, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Part mockumentary, party black comedy, part action-adventure and part cinematic dare, the movie is a bizarre, engrossing creation that will leave audiences either delighted or baffled, though never bored.

    September 30, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A send-up like this works far better for a few minutes on the small screen (see Documentary! or Drunk History); at feature length it becomes a stylistic exercise, like a kid mugging for the camera through an Instagram filter.

    September 29, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Ingeniously using his low budget to address his ambitions, Johnson has directed, co-written (and starred in) a unique science-fiction film.

    September 23, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A bright idea can only take a movie so far. Mission not accomplished.

    September 22, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
