Reviews compiled by Rotten Tomatoes [21]:

  • ScreenDaily "A wide-ranging, eye-opening film, it should attract the attention of serious-minded audiences willing to confront the subject matter and previously supportive of animation titles ranging from Waltz With Bashir to Another Day Of Life."[22]
  • The Hollywood Reporter "[An] eye-opening animated documentary..."[23]
  • Eye For Film "Western documentary regulars may feel as though they are in familiar territory at the start of the film, which begins by focusing on Syria - but soon the violence considered will come a lot closer to home."[24]
