Critic Reviews for Shortwave

All Critics (4)

There doesn't seem to be anything under the over-serious surface.

June 1, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This is a good film for those who can relate to horror pics that are intellectually scary rather than just violently scary.

October 24, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Always feels more interested in the visual experience, rendering the storytelling somewhat flat, even when it touches on unbearably devastating events.

October 19, 2017 | Rating: C | Full Review…

It gets more harrowing for Isabel and more harrowing for us the further along it goes.
