Critic Reviews for Rockaway

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (4)

  • 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.

    January 11, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It shines [in] its desire to retain the darkness that's intrinsic to its drama [despite focusing upon kids]. Youth doesn't exempt us from the cruel world in which we live.

    November 19, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • Rockaway is a little bit of a sports movie, a lot of a friends movie, and overall a survivor movie. I walked away glad that I watched it, and that says something.

    November 14, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A beautifully told story driven by heart and an ensemble of young actors who embody the characters with truth and authenticity as they face triumph and tragedy together ... lensing is intimate yet energetic and fluid immersing us in these young lives.

  • This mix of "Good Boys" and "Stand By Me" touches all the right emotions with two brothers struggling to survive the summer of 94. Writer/director John J Budion is on the right track with his career.
