Fast Color

Critics Consensus

A grounded superhero story with more on its mind than punching bad guys, Fast Color leaps over uneven execution with a single Gugu Mbatha-Raw performance.

Critic Reviews for Fast Color

All Critics (82) | Top Critics (17) | Fresh (67) | Rotten (15)

  • It's the rare superhero film that proceeds without a devotion to the spectacular that filters out, from the start, all the interest that's generated from close attention to ordinary life.

  • The story crafted in images is mysterious and moving, whether in the quick flashes of memory that invade Ruth's psyche, or the beautiful special effects that render the women's unique abilities.

    Apr 19, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The title Fast Color is just as meaningless as everything else in the movie, which hobbles along stretching the parameters of female empowerment to pad out the running time but fails to hold audience attention.

  • When all the puzzle-like pieces come together, the movie's characters, story, score and emotions soar. The pace of that progress may feel slow, but things never get too quiet. It's a movie with a racing pulse, and you can feel its heart in every frame.

    Apr 19, 2019 | Full Review…
  • "Fast Color's" ruminative pacing is often dull, and the lack of conflict and suspense undercut the film's noble intentions and unique storytelling approach.

    Apr 19, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • By finding the right note of empathy, Hart creates a space for the audience to share their doggedly earned hope.
