Los Angeles Times - Noel Murray
This is an appealingly polished thriller, with something modest but profound to say about how selfish choices can ripple across decades.

IGN - Chris Tilly
The action is thrilling and the science fiction stuff compelling, but there are several occasions where it feels like the screenplay is talking down to its audience, most notably during its heavy-handed climax.

The New York Times - Unnamed
The film is never less than engaging, and it’s just about always clever.

The Guardian - Benjamin Lee
There’s a slicker, more coherent and ultimately more thematically audacious film to be made from the disparate elements that make up In the Shadow of the Moon but what we have is a lovable mess nonetheless. Its ambitions are easy to criticise but hard not to admire, a mad little movie with big ideas on its mind.

RogerEbert.com - Brian Tallerico
An odd film like this needs a charismatic anchor in its lead role to keep it from losing its human connection and Boyd Holbrook just can’t muster the energy to do that. It’s a strangely flat, unengaging performance that doesn't match the ambition of the overall piece.
