      Tick, Tick... Boom! Reviews

      Thanks to Garfield’s eccentric performance, tick, tick… BOOM is a film worth remembering. It may feel like doomsday, but that’s when you need to soldier on. It’s on Netflix and is worth a watch.

      tick, tick…BOOM! is imbued with the dreary haze of 1990s malaise with bits of musical inspiration punctuating its at-times-joyous and at-times-heartrending nearly two-hour production

      "The film is beautifully rendered and expertly crafted. The immense research effort involved in this endeavor is readily apparent, and Miranda shows his work at every step of the way."

      Andrew Garfield is glorious in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s tick, tick… BOOM!, an arresting adaptation of its soulful source material that should satisfy fans and mesmerize even more with the music of Jonathan Larson.

      Plays like something that desperately had to come to fruition, both in Miranda's quest to pay tribute, and in Larson's initial efforts to turn his Superbia experience into something creatively meaningful.

      A riveting tribute to Jonathan Larson that's difficult to believe this is a directorial debut. A magnetic performance from Garfield as Larson.

      In the hands of Miranda and Garfield, this becomes a form of desperation in which every song is forced out as a last-ditch effort.

      Much to our delight, in the hands of Miranda and Levenson, ticktickBOOM! works even better as a movie, told in a mix of style that includes both full-on, old-school production numbers and diegetic songs.

      Andrew Garfield delivers what may be the defining performance of his career as the man who would go on to create Rent in this fraught but hopeful musical drama directed by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

      Here is a biopic musical about procrastination. It can wait.

      Full Review | Original Score: C- | Feb 15, 2022

      What do you do after youve written two Tony-award winning musicals, including the brilliant Hamilton? If youre Lin-Manuel Miranda you make your feature film directing debut with a musical about one of your peers.

      Andrew Garfield puts forth all kind of energy in an impressive performance. Man, this is his year!

      Its a beautiful portrait only elevated with a career-best performance from Garfield and a tender portrayal from de Jesus. However, Tick Tick Boom keeps up Hollywoods frequent use of dipping into gay trauma porn as LGBTQ story representation.

      Full Review | Feb 12, 2022

      It features a more or less charismatic performance by Andrew Garfield, but its lights never quite illuminate a theatrical stage that regularly repeats the same indulgent and boring numbers about a playwright's creative crisis. [Full review in Spanish]

      Full Review | Original Score: 5/10 | Jan 27, 2022

      tick, tick... Boom! never quite transcends its stage roots... Even so, it's a remarkable showcase for its director, who looks set to helm better stuff in the future, and for its male lead, who looks to be another luminary in Hollywood's musical ranks.
