Reviews

Kristy Puchko reviewed The Bad Batch for the Nerdist and gave the film 4.5/5 burritos. She summed up with the following:

Ultimately, The Bad Batch is challenging, unnerving, and even hilarious in whip-smart bursts. It’s a drama with its tongue planted firmly in cheek, and it’s comedy firmly sticking up a proud middle finger. It’s strange and surreal, grotesque and glorious. And It follows a deeply flawed, recklessly rebellious, and unapologetically passionate young woman through a treacherous terrain of the damned.

Matt Prazak reviewed The Bad Batch for Get Reel Movies and gave the film 8/10 stars. He said the following about Keanu:

… in one of his best roles in recent years, Keanu Reeves plays The Dream. The cult leader of the Comfort compound, Reeves is clearly having a lot of fun as the Elvis ripoff. Though we love him as John Wick, its nice to see him playing around in the independent circuit with films like The Neon Demon and The Bad Batch. With his supporters surrounding him, The Dream delivers a great monologue which ends up being one of the most memorable parts of the film.

He said the following about the film:

The Bad Batch doesn’t do anything new with its story, but the film has many technical achievements to be proud of. The camera moves effortlessly and captures the dour location brilliantly.

…The film is enhanced thanks to a soundtrack of electronic beats that play well with the neon glow that litters the screen throughout. Thanks to a credible cast, Reeves in particular, the film mixes black comedy with gruesome horror seamlessly.
