Critic Reviews for Soundwave

  • Soundwave gets so caught up in Ben's evasion of Frank that it sacrifices the promise of its interesting sci-fi ideas and its throwback sensibility, instead devolving into a generic thriller.

  • Smart, slick-looking, idea-driven sci-fi chase film about a boy genius trying to keep his good invention out of bad hands.

    May 25, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Imagination most matured, this is. Resourceful, punch-packing, and straight-up fun.

    May 22, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Soundwave isn't looking to reflect on the implications of Hunter's invention, but rather with creating an effective thriller. [Full Review in Spanish]

    May 22, 2020 | Full Review…
  • This enjoyable if rather lightweight outing will appeal to younger teenagers and pass the time well enough for older viewers, but one is left hoping that its big idea will be picked up and given the more substantial treatment that it deserves.

    May 21, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It is on the whole engaging although the script, especially the emotionally charged sections, is not as focused as it needs to be leading to the film feeling longer than it actually is.
