      Janaya Greene Chicago Reader Juxtapositions of the same-titled play narrated by Garfield and the scenes playing out provide an exciting yet devastating backstory to Larson... Dec 4, 2021 Full Review Don Aucoin Boston Globe With "tick, tick ... BOOM!", Miranda has done [Larson] proud. Rated: 3/4 Nov 24, 2021 Full Review Jessica Derschowitz Entertainment Weekly Tick, Tick... Boom! is a totem for the thrills and trials of making art, with all the sacrifices and empathy it requires. Rated: A- Nov 24, 2021 Full Review Amy Smith InSession Film If anything, I think the material would work better as a stage production, purely letting Jonathan Larson shine with a single spotlight. I would love to see Garfield play the role again soon if that is the case. Rated: C= Mar 1, 2024 Full Review Jillian Chilingerian Offscreen With Jillian The main takeaway is as an artist you have to learn from your mistakes and keep moving forward to refine your craft. It is a reminder that time can run out soon. Jul 26, 2023 Full Review Manuel São Bento MSB Reviews Boasting memorable, addictive, first-rate music performed by astonishingly talented actors, Lin-Manuel Miranda delivers one of the best musical films of the century. Andrew Garfield offers one of the best performances of his career. Rated: A Jul 25, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Really good production and direction Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/17/22 Full Review haruspeguero There is a certain amount of care into introducing tough relatable and cringe things and make the audience comfortable with it. This movie excels in ways I did not think a musical based film would portray Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/04/21 Full Review Alias Made me sob five times and I usually only sob once, so prepare to be emotionally drained afterwards. First movie Ive seen in a while that really impacted me, I think its great, Im trying to think of something to criticize it over but Im coming up blank. Bring tissue Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/02/21 Full Review MoK it was more than i was expecting. great work all around Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/29/21 Full Review Mateo Phenomenal!
