What to know

critics consensus

Rim of the World is too bland to live up to the 80s teen adventures it references, and too full of clichés to be able to set itself apart from them. Read critic reviews

Critic Reviews for Rim of the World

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (11)

  • For those with a soft spot for coming-of-age adventures, Rim of the World is just passable, but it's riddled with logic leaps, tonal inconsistencies and out of touch humor.

    May 30, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The clockwork storyline is brazen in its adherence to formula, as if a Learning Annex seminar somehow came to life.

    May 24, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Its greatest value is probably in how it could educate budding movie-lovers on cheesy and predictable storytelling, but even that seems like a lesson Rim of the World cynically teaches at an elementary level.

    May 24, 2019 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • McG's biggest project in a while lacks the most important thing about the 80s films it tries to emulate - the sense of opening up a secret part of the world.

    April 29, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Films aren't just a collection of sensation-grabbing set-pieces - they have rules to engage with your brain, and viewers need someone to connect with.

    January 8, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • A grating, painfully awful movie that seems to work against everything that makes movies of this ilk so entertaining.
