Critic Reviews for Heaven Is a Playground

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

What is strange about Heaven Is a Playground is how this dynamite material is defused -- how the movie meanders and loses its way, drags to a halt when it should be most exciting, and goes through strange shifts in tone and style.
