KXL-FM (Portland, OR)
August 03, 2018 Fills the teen and young adult aimed dystopian movie series void. Predictable but fun enough to recommend. How good it really is will depend on sequels 2 and 3.Read in Source
August 03, 2018 The Darkest Minds is a solid enough dystopian sci-fi YA adaptation, elevated by Amandla Stenberg's performance, but it won't revive this film trend.Read in Source
Globe and Mail
August 03, 2018 The film's bittersweet conclusion is strong enough to provide real narrative impetus for the inevitable sequel.Read in Source
August 02, 2018 What we're left with is a Mad-Libs version of a dystopian YA adaptation done by someone who saw half of an X-Men movie on TV once, with no depth, no new ideas, and no point.Read in Source

August 03, 2018 Skilled actors can't save derivative, violent YA thriller.Read in Source
August 03, 2018 Although the film's ending is relatively open-ended, [director Jennifer] Yuh Nelson's message of mobilization is an urgent message, specifically for a young audience, which it goes to great lengths to understand and serve.Read in Source
