Critic Reviews for Settlers

All Critics (46) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (24) | Rotten (22)

  • There is life on Mars and it's a godawful small affair, according to this determinedly sombre sci-fi film.

    July 30, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Above all, what sets this production apart from the rest is its unflinchingly honest and bleak view of the human condition.

  • Settlers isn't perfect: some of the storytelling beats aren't hit as clearly as they could have been. But it's a quietly impressive piece of work.

    July 28, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Cordova has to navigate an incredibly tight channel to bring all of this across, and while he isn't entirely successful, watching him make the attempt is still frequently exhilarating.

    July 26, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Settlers is so bare in world-building details that its characters float untethered, and a major mid-film reveal seems like a narrative shortcut.

    July 24, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Ultimately, though, Settlers is more about setting a mood and painting a picture of hopelessness than explaining what happened before the story...it feels incomplete.

  • [It] seems like it was an idea that was originally conceived as a short film, but somehow it got stretched into dull junk that trudges to an unsurprising and lackluster end ... There are plenty of better and more memorable movies about life on Mars.

  • When it comes to envisioning and creating a tangible world, Setters is terrifically seducive.
