  • Scott Tobias

    There are many layers to the man and the movie, and it’s hard not to leave the theater shaken.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Jennie Punter

    Even in a season of apocalyptic films, these facts are really, really scary.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    I don't know when I've seen a thriller more frightening. I couldn't tear my eyes from the screen. Collapse is even entertaining, in a macabre sense. I think you owe it to yourself to see it.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    You may want to dispute Ruppert, but more than that you'll want to hear him, because what he says -- right or wrong, prophecy or paranoia -- takes up residence in your mind.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Rob Nelson

    Unnervingly persuasive much of the time, and merely riveting when it's not.

    Variety Full Review
  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    His well-rehearsed rhetoric is shockingly persuasive, and since the majority of his premises are verifiable, any weakness in his argument lies in inferences so terrifying that reasonable listeners may find themselves taking his advice and stocking up on organic seeds. (Those with no access to land can, postapocalypse, use them as currency.)

    The New York Times Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Ruppert makes a compelling argument that the world is approaching a paradigm shift unlike anything in human history.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    If any of what he says makes sense to you -- and even if it’s only a small piece, it’s terrifying -- then you’ll want to invest in gold and organic seeds and friendly relations with your nearest neighbors. You know: JUST IN CASE.....

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    A grueling peek at a doomsday prophet's rigorous mind but in a sly way also a compassionate look at the strain Ruppert endures from knowing he has only ever been right.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Dan Kois

    Think of Collapse as the anti-"2012." Not because this dour doc is any more optimistic about the future than that recent apocalyptic spectacular but because its vision of disaster is delivered not through expensive special effects but by a talking head.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • David Fear

    While this totally impartial approach is admirable, it also robs Collapse of any invested sensibility. Smith has given this bull a stage on which to rage, but why the filmmaker has bothered to mount the platform in the first place is, frustratingly, anybody’s guess.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Nicolas Rapold

    Smith lets Ruppert's plainspoken autodidactic skepticism get gradually shriller until his arguments dissolve into tears of grief and frustration. There's an element of Errol Morris in the film, which implicitly psychologizes its subject and watches as he talks himself deeper and deeper into the hole.

  • Mark Jenkins

    If nothing else, while watching Ruppert, you'll believe he believes this stuff.

    NPR Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    It would have been helpful had Smith put his words into some sort of context, allowing others to assess his theories. Instead there's simply Ruppert, talking, raging and warning, as if his very life depended on it.
