Critic Reviews for The Taqwacores

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (11) | Rotten (16)

  • If it argues about what it means to be young, Muslim and American, it does so with some tedium at its edges.

    August 12, 2011 | Rating: 2/5
  • From this intriguing beginning, sadly, a laboriously scripted and acted drama unfolds...

    August 11, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Far-from perfect but bravely interrogates a difficult subject.

    August 11, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • America's Muslim punk scene could certainly be considered underexplored, but why this generally bothersome indie drama has to be given such a bleached-out look is hard to fathom.

  • Stroppy rather than strident and as coherent as a Johnny Rotten rant, it fails to deliver a thoughtful statement on modern Muslim identity.

    August 8, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • What this rough-around-the-edges but hugely likeable film lacks in budget it more than makes up for in energy, visual flair and, yes, punk spirit.

  • A missed opportunity that is at once strenuously sincere and painfully misguided - a ham handed cry for tolerance that doesn't do its characters, or its subject, justice.

    August 5, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The actors all give credible performance, but running at just over 80 minutes, The Taqwacores feels slight and under-developed.

Audience Reviews for The Taqwacores

  • Nov 02, 2010
    Intermittently interesting drama about a young Muslim engineering student who moves in with a group of fellow young Muslims who are part of an underground Islamic "punk" scene. Takes a look at the different brands and ideologies in modern Islam, but also suffers from a heavy-handed script and one-dimensional characters.
