Critic Reviews for Rockaway

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

  • Rockaway is a survivor's film, and it's seemingly warped by the agony of the experiences that Budion is trying to relate.

  • [Rockaway] relies on blunt sentimentality and awkwardly, expressly warps its own story inspired by true events to be adoption-ready for Stand By Me fans.

    Jan 11, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • There are minor quibbles that Rockaway takes on, and a large part successfully addresses some very serious, very adult themes: abuse and its legacy for future generations, familial protection, and preservation, loss and redemption.

    Jan 18, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • Often contrived and clunky while falling emotionally flat with a dull screenplay and mediocre performances. It ultimately bites off much more than it could chew.

    Jan 14, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…
  • It feels like your standard sports film but bookended by violence, with some of the events during the ending coming across as rather convenient and poorly executed

    Jan 10, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Attempts at giving this "Stand by Me" meets "The Sandlot" an "edge" are overwhelmed by efforts to rub that edge off.

    Jan 7, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
