” …there’s a lot of inconsistency with the length of the different shorts, it’s not expected for them all to take up the same space but having some be much longer than others makes it feel uneven. It also adds an unsatisfying note to those that play out much more quickly, only some having decent resolutions.” 1 out of 10, Film Carnage
“While the last segment is a high-note, it’s difficult to overlook the previous segments which make for a mostly disappointing whole. Most of the stories have a lacking sense of peril, not helped by the connective tissue struggling to cohesively bring them together. By the end, the 78-minute runtime feels anything but swift.” 1.5 out of 5, Nerdly
