The Hummingbird Project | Ratings & Reviews

"The Hummingbird Project has all the makings of a wicked moral thriller. Its probe into sticky ethical quandaries inherent in the unchecked tech-driven colossus that is the modern era is, undoubtedly, sharply topical stuff. But writer/director Kim Nguyen, a competent hand but lacking the superior formalist chops of a David Fincher to elevate and galvanise the material, only gets there in scattered fashion."

"An entertaining vehicle for vivid performances by both actors."


"It's an odd tale, but in its sneaky way, an unexpectedly engaging one."

Sydney Morning HeraldSydney Morning Herald

"Although it perhaps eventually over-eggs the contrivances and misfortunes, there's a lot to like about this understated Project."


"A defiantly odd thriller involving esoteric subject matter, The Hummingbird Project tells a familiar story of ambition and greed with enough eccentricity that the movie's strangeness becomes one of its chief attributes."

Screen DailyScreen Daily

"Whatever it takes to keep a techno hellraiser on its feet, this humdrum Hummingbird doesn't have it, despite the efforts of Eisenberg and Skarsgård to breathe some life into it."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"Fascinating story but its telling leaves you cold."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"A smartly entertaining and unexpectedly human film..."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"There's a good reason why no one's ever made a movie about this before - in fact, there are probably a few."


"Though this intriguing genre-hybrid might be just a little too odd for more mainstream success, this is a promising step in the right direction for Nguyen."
