      David B Low budget but witty. Brilliantly directed. Good story, I have to wonder if the main make protagonist is autistic? Resonated with modern life and a really good watch. Good music choices too. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/14/23 Full Review bryan b You can guess the plot of this one without seeing it. Follows it to the letter. The even drive off into the sunset together. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Sweet. Intelligent. Beautifully directed and acted. Small scale filmmaking that puts mainstream movies to shame. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review john s ODD COUPLE Lurking lonely in a self-imposed dungeon basement apartment, whilst his ex loudly explores her oiled and buff Aussie boy toy above, Damon is in desperate need of life altering salvation. It comes in short order with a space-suited pixie chick offering a chance at Mars colonization. The perfect escape for the dead end Earther. In the truth is stranger than fiction twist, the seemingly far fetched space angle, actual project Mars One, is gathering terrestrials hoping to be extra, and though that wild proposition offers up an enticing film storyline, "Red Rover" is less about outer and more about self discovery. When the awkward cherub nerd Damon's bottom feeder life is rocked by uninhibited spark plug Phoebe, he recoils, retreats, and reconsiders. His life. Is Mars the answer? Can he recapture his ex? Who is this new whirlwind? Adventure calls, but as always, inertia is an easy option. Red rover, red rover, will Damon come over? That is life's quandary. Kristian Bruun and Cara Gee sparkle as the mismatched leads, crossing paths as they stumble towards unknown destinations. A silly, charming, endearing, and tasty little deli slice of cinema this, "Red Rover" pulls its roundhouse punches in favour of a series of well placed jabs. Not a knock out, but a bit of a tenacious tickler. - hipCRANK Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Barry Hertz Globe and Mail These are walking and talking traits, not characters. Rated: 2/4 May 21, 2020 Full Review Nicolas Soto But Why Tho? A Geek Community The use of the manic pixie dream girl trope in [Red Rover] immediately took away any appreciation for Damon and Phoebe’s bond throughout the film. Rated: 5/10 Jan 22, 2023 Full Review Richard Crouse Richard Crouse Red Rover is a quirky story that could have been overcome by its whimsy, but is rescued by actors who make their characters more than caricatures of a man in mid-life crisis or the Manic Pixie Dream Girl. Rated: 3/5 Jan 30, 2021 Full Review Chris Knight National Post Still, it's easy to be won over by the film's upbeat nature... Rated: 3/5 May 15, 2020 Full Review Liam Lacey Original Cin It has a pleasing DIY look, mixing grainy stock footage with crisp earthbound cinematography, a nicely grounded performance from Bruun, decent moments of deadpan comic dialogue, and a premise so outlandish you want to see it worked through. Rated: B-minus May 12, 2020 Full Review Anne Brodie What She Said A winning look at losing. May 8, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
