All Critics (35) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (33) | Rotten (2)

  • Not only fully delivers the conventions of genre and storytelling that audiences expect from the film's premise, but it also elevates and refines them to a sharp point.

  • A lean creature feature that could have used just a little extra meat on its bones.

    September 25, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • Not quite original or stylish enough to be memorable.

  • A really fun movie that's both old-fashioned and progressive at the same time.

    February 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's not afraid to go for the occasional jump scare, but it's also an ingenious affair, a no-nonsense monster movie that uses its limitations effectively and tells its story cinematically.

  • A cracking little one-hander (mostly) that rations glimpses of its well-designed beastie expertly, the picture will please genre fans who don't mind long stretches with no dialogue.

Audience Reviews for Sweetheart

  • Dec 22, 2019
    The quality varies so greatly over its short 82 minute run time that it's hard to get a read on Sweetheart. Maybe my expectations were just too high because of all the positive buzz it got, but I didn't enjoy Sweetheart overall, just in parts.
