Critic Reviews for Spud

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

In a surprisingly strong performance, [John] Cleese puts a sharp spin on his portrayal as mentor to Spud [Troye Sivan], whose rites-of-passage journey avoids the usual cliches.

A hugely entertaining coming-of-age tale, grounded in realism. Sivan's note-perfect portrayal of the diminutive hero is matched by a razor-sharp Cleese.

If there was satirical intent, it is leached from the film.

I think largely because of the completely innocent-seeming performance of Troye Sivan, it won me over and I found myself actually quite moved by the end.

This is a film most will like - especially fans of last year's Submarine.

You and your kids will have seen it all before but, if you're looking for a less brutal take on the ordeals of adolescence than the one offered by The Hunger Games, this could work.
