Reviews

ReelViews - James Berardinelli
The three leads provide convincing performances, with Dakota Fanning being the standout.

The Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt
The vigor and pace is electric, and the movie features three showy performances by Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning and Michael Shannon.

Variety - Dennis Harvey
A conventionally enjoyable making-and-breaking-of-the-band saga.

Village Voice - Unnamed
In The Runaways' first hour, there's a guttural pleasure to be had in riding waves of rock-movie cliché spiked with socio-sexual commentary. The movie is at its best when working through the contradictions of teen sex-for-sale, when it's both turn-on and creep-out.

Arizona Republic - Bill Goodykoontz
The Runaways broke new ground. And if "The Runaways" doesn't, it's still a movie worth watching - and listening to.
