Martin Sheen shines in a beautifully made, unforced tale of spiritual reawakening and self-discovery that is as life-affirming as it is entertaining.– Full review
Don Groves, sbs.com.au
Estevez and Sheen combine in a touching father-son tale of grief and reconciliation.– Full review
Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
It's not quite a road movie nor a real redemption story, nor a buddy movie; it's a diary where the journey is more important than the getting to the destination– Full review
Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
Estevez has made a gentle and immensely likeable film that flows naturally, whose heart comes from the solid, grounding performance by his father Martin Sheen– Full review
Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
Okay, since the destination is preordained, what does the script do en route? Estevez's answer is two-fold: minor episodic adventures + incessantly repeated montages.– Full review
