      David Stratton The Australian ...one of those irritating local films in which all the Australian actors adopt American accents. Rated: 2/5 Oct 5, 2018 Full Review Jake Wilson The Age (Australia) This amateurish local try at a fantasy for teenagers is a transparently bad movie, but bad in a disorientating, vaguely psychedelic way, obeying laws peculiarly its own. Rated: 1.5/5 Oct 2, 2018 Full Review Rhys Tarling Isolated Nation Harmony is a miserable experience without a speck of momentum or originality. Rated: 1/5 Sep 26, 2019 Full Review Sarah Ward Flicks (AU, NZ, UK) Like an emo music video stretched out to feature length. Rated: 1/5 Jan 28, 2019 Full Review Dov Kornits FILMINK (Australia) Let Harmony wash over you; it will touch and reward you. Rated: 17/20 Oct 7, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Kaiti T At least it was only and hour and a half of my time wasted. The concept had potential, but the execution was...hacking. From the start the film was all over the place; the disjoined seemingly unrelated scenes lent a curiosity as to how the filmmaker would tie it all together, but to acheive such a task requires meticulous attention to detail and continuity - a characteristic completed void from the script or film. The dialogue was poorly written, giving little credibility to the intensity of emotion required to buy into the premise of the film. The characters themselves felt like a conceptual artist's broad stroked painting, leaving the viewer with an intellectual understanding of what they're supposed to feel but having little to no connection or impact. Most scenes were an extreme exaggeration (bordering on farce) of the concept of the emotion the filmmaker was trying evoke, but without the nuanced "daily life" scenes, it came across as a high-frequency flat performance - when everything is urgent and important, nothing is urgent and important. Overall the film was disjointed enough to be confusing and left this viewer feeling as though the filming ended before it was complete - which may actually be the case given the circumstances around the lead actress. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 08/26/23 Full Review Renea I think the story is amazing. I came online to see if it had a sequel. I'm itching to see what happens next!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/14/23 Full Review holly s Absolutely beautiful story. Wishing there was a sequel. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/15/23 Full Review Paul H I don't understand why people say the movie "Absolution" is bad. I really enjoyed the movie and I think it is a great movie!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Just no on all levels. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/18/23 Full Review Gabrielle H I wish that they had kept the actors home accents, trying to push for an 'American' feel was actually kind of sad to me. That aside however I think that critics don't give YA or even Adults credit, I understood the base line and plot of this quite well. And I actually quite enjoyed this movie. I am sad that the Actress whom played Harmony passed away before this was even released so it would be hard to watch someone else take over the role, however I really do hope that they continue with the 5 movie set they had originally set out to do. I want to see what happens. I want to watch her grow. I thought this was a unique kind of super hero... and the one maybe the world actually needs.
