Hitfix - Gregory Ellwood
This sort of storyline could go wrong very quickly, but thanks to some fortuitously funny moments, Vallee’s assured direction and Gyllenhaal’s spectacular performance it’s surprisingly compelling. And, let’s be absolutely clear: it’s Gyllenhaal who keeps it all together.

The Hollywood Reporter - Jordan Mintzer
It’s a unique take on what could otherwise be a morbidly depressing tale of loss and grief, dishing out tons of energy and spats of devilish humor, though not always fitting its numerous parts into a succinct whole.

Variety - Peter Debruge
Gyllenhaal grounds Davis’ wildly unraveling psyche, finding both the humor and heart in a man who admits to having spent the past 10 to 12 years incapable of feeling.
67
IndieWire - Kate Erbland
Demolition spends its goodwill early on, eventually giving itself over to cheap-feeling twists and a problematic final act.
50
Slant Magazine - Christopher Gray
It takes its literalism to such an extreme that, at points, it's difficult to determine whether or not the film is operating with a semblance of irony.
