“An awe-inspiring piece of filmmaking from Edgar Wright that plays out as a musical through the lens of an action thriller. Sweet, funny and utterly original — you won’t see a film like it this year.” - Empire
“A subtly innovative blend of cars, guns, music and old-school cool, it's also one of those increasingly rare creatures in Hollywood: an undeniably original movie.” - New Orleans Times
“It's all bolted together like clockwork, an assemblage of elements designed to arouse and engage an audience that needs a reason to stop looking at their phones.” - Sydney Morning Herald
“America gives Wright his boss tunes, his cinematic influences and a ticket to ride. There's also the risk of hubris attached to that freedom, as becomes apparent here.” - The Sunday Age
