WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Time Out London by Dave Calhoun

The creature effects are charming.... But the pig-chasing antics and cartoonish corporate nastiness that dominate much of the film become seriously grating.

New York Magazine (Vulture) by Emily Yoshida

The film is packed with so many strange gems of moments, and while a few feel like Bong losing the plot (specifically any time Okja decides to loosen her bowels) it always snaps back together.

IndieWire by Eric Kohn

As with Snowpiercer, this is a story almost too eager to fire in multiple directions, sometimes with messy results, veering from broad satire to softer exchanges with little regard for finding balance between the two.

The Playlist by Jessica Kiang

This is a gorgeously realized popcorn movie of the most satisfying, comforting, restorative kind: full as its heart is, it has a lot on its mind, yet you’d also quite like to curl up on its belly and doze in the sun.

Variety by Peter Debruge

Downright charming at times and irrepressibly gonzo at others, Okja hews to an all-too-familiar trajectory.

The Telegraph by Tim Robey

Okja is plenty of fun, and smart around the edges, but the girl-and-her-pig stuff can drag, and it feels like it’s pressing for resonance more than properly achieving it.
