(Griff the Invisible movie review at Entertainment Weekly)
Lisa Schwarzbaum — Entertainment Weekly
Though the movie sounds perilously twee, "Griff the Invisible" works as a slice of emotional life for the most part because of its lead performances.
Manohla Dargis — New York Times
Griff seems a little too psychologically damaged to laugh at. On the other hand, for a drama, his behavior is way too silly to take seriously.
Michael O'Sullivan — Washington Post
The touches of magical realism begin to feel gimmicky. By the final frame, this romance never feels real enough.
Ethan Gilsdorf — Boston Globe
An Australian misfits-in-love story manufactured from whole quirk, Griff the Invisible is more mannerism than movie.
Michelle Orange — Village Voice
Though hardly ground-breaking, this whimsical Australian entry is just endearing enough to stand out from the pack.
Elizabeth Weitzman — New York Daily News
It tries too hard to be eccentric, kooky. So hard, it can be downright annoying.

(Griff the Invisible movie review at Variety)
John Anderson — Variety
Sits on the screen like a steaming lump of Kryptonite.
Kyle Smith — New York Post
It's a movie that works so hard to be quirky it fails to get us onside with the main character.
Linda Barnard — Toronto Star
A cheerfully offbeat Aussie take on superhero movies.
Stephen Cole — Globe and Mail
A superhero wannabe fights the forces of loneliness and alienation in this uneven Aussie indie.
Megan Lehmann — Hollywood Reporter
There's critical wit behind the appealingly eccentric romance on display in "Griff the Invisible" as it comically dismantles our superhero-worshiping culture.
Robert Abele — Los Angeles Times
It's a film that asks potent questions about important topics, but will first and foremost charm viewers with its oddball humour and romanticism. Griff the Invisible is a treat.
Griff The Invisible explores the personal angle of vigilante justice, adding a unique spin to the superhero genre with heartfelt moments and relatability.
Emily Estep — We Got This Covered
Struggles heroically, but unsuccessfully, to strike a balance between whimsy and pathos.
Calvin Wilson — St. Louis Post-Dispatch
It's shaggy, but its modest charms make up for that.
Chris Hewitt (St. Paul) — St. Paul Pioneer Press
I'm all for ambiguity in films, but it doesn't feel like writer/director Leon Ford left Griff and his underlying issues vague on purpose.
Matt Singer — IFC.com
I'd take 10 more Green Lanterns over one more wannabe-superhero flick.
Tricia Olszewski — Washington City Paper
Mopey-but-sweet Australian entry in the Kick-Ass homemade superhero sweepstakes.
Kelly Vance — East Bay Express
