Critic Reviews for The Changeover

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (22) | Rotten (10)

  • A thought-provoking examination of the emotional fallout of a natural disaster, The Changeover has a number of narrative issues, but some fine performances elevate this one.

    February 10, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • There seems to be much promise attached the story but the film doesn't quite deliver what's expected.

    February 3, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The Changeover is refreshingly a young adult adaptation that doesn't have aspirations for a franchise.

    July 31, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Great style and performances are not enough to make The Changeover any different from a teen fantasy franchise launch. [Full review in Spanish].

    May 15, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • An easy going production with time-honored tropes fails to raise a ruckus.

    March 8, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…
  • This film might take place in a world lousy with witches and warlocks, but it is desperately short of the magic needed to overcome its flaws.
