Reviews: Blockers (2018)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Francisco Cangiano @ CineXpress [Spanish]
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: Blockers is the kind of film that is more interesting to talk about in terms of what it doesn’t do rather than what it does do. The gender politics are a clever subversion, but the rest of the film is funny but relatively business as usual.
  • Matt Donato @ We Got This Covered
    • Excerpt: Blockers sells itself as a parents-first warpath comedy, but the true treat here is watching a trio of young women navigate sex-comedy narratives that boys have dominated for far too long.
  • James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: Nothing wrong with emotion if it feels sincere. When it follows a scene in which everyone projectile vomits, well….it made me want to vomit.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: It’s a welcome change to see teens, especially young women, portrayed as competent, thoughtful, and capable of making not only their own decisions, but good decisions.
  • Simon Miraudo @ Student Edge
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
  • Frank Ochieng @ The Critical Critics
    • Excerpt: While the teen sex comedy Blockers brings on the typical roller-coaster of raunchiness, it somehow registers devilishly with an offbeat, uproarious take on the trials and tribulations of stress-induced parenting and safeguarding the so-called virtues of impressionable daughters from predatory prom dates.
  • Jon Patridge @ Cinapse
  • Nuno Reis @ Antestreia
    • Excerpt: Um desperdício de tempo e dinheiro, que só se aproveita pela mensagem politicamente correcta incontornável. Já que o filme seguiu o caminho confortável das ideias recicladas, seria pedir muito uma sequela na universidade estilo “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”, onde não usassem os pais para pouparem no orçamento?
