More Info:
  • Rex Reed

    It’s not for the squeamish, but thanks to a riveting central performance by Vanessa Hudgens and a compassionate screenplay by Ron Krauss, who also directed, this is a far more sobering and substantial exposé of homeless teenage girls on the dangerous edge of society than you might expect.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Writer-director Krauss embraces the spiritual elements of this story without turning it into a heavy-handed religious lecture.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Though the arc of the film is as saccharine as a Precious Moments figurine — and it'll play that way for audiences who can't be bothered to look closer — Hudgens is too honest to believe in simple, happy endings.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Sheila O'Malley

    The film never says the words "pro-life" or "pro-choice." It genuinely seems to be about how the system has broken down entirely, and how sometimes it is up to privately funded charities to provide a light at the end of the tunnel.

    RogerEbert.com Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Gimme Shelter has a lighter touch than you might think. Yet there are times when its attempts at wringing drama out of real life are more strenuous than is strictly necessary.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Gimme Shelter exists less as a social lesson than as a wobbly showcase for Hudgens' still-developing skills.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    Gimme Shelter, a ripped-from-real-life story of a pregnant teen's journey toward hope, is filled with very good intentions, very bad dialogue and a surprisingly affecting turn by its star Vanessa Hudgens.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    Gimme Shelter is sometimes moving and inspiring, but you have to wonder: Though Kathy and her movement give teenagers shelter, do they give them a life?

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Although it’s superficially grungy, this true story isn’t much more substantive than something that star Vanessa Hudgens might have made for the Disney Channel and considerably less shocking than her career gambit in “Spring Breakers.”

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Gimme Shelter is an attempt at something grand, and though it doesn't get halfway there, it covers some ground.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    As a film, though, Gimme Shelter is unremarkable, a predictable story of redemption that happens awfully fast, to a girl who only seems to be in peril briefly — and has a rich dad to bail her out.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    It’s the sort of movie whose finale leaves you wondering, “Why do they always leave out what happens next?”

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Randy Cordova

    Most of the time, it simply coasts along at the level of a typical Lifetime TV movie.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    It's the sort of movie that would have starred Valerie Bertinelli or Kristy McNichol back in the 1980s, tricked out with PG-13 grittiness and religious wholesomeness. It's the sort of story that ignores unpleasant social implications in favor of programmed sentiment.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Kate Erbland

    For all of Krauss’ clearly good intentions, the film still falls staggeringly flat, even with the inclusion of a bold and unexpected performance from Vanessa Hudgens, doing her damndest to break out of the Disney mold and turn in actual work here.

    Film.com Full Review
  • Ronnie Scheib

    The film is hamstrung by its fidelity to real-life inspirational models.

    Variety Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    The story unfolds in large part through awkward contrivance.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Propaganda is a bitch to act. And this misguided movie leaves Hudgens buried in it.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Gimme Shelter suffers from an acute case of the fakes. The speeches sound like speeches, and not good ones.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    There’s nothing wrong with social-cause filmmaking, and the movie’s chief problem is less its political talking points than the corny way it tries to impart them.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Whatever its politics, Gimme Shelter fails on multiple levels.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The film is more of a pageant than a convincing drama. It’s so determined to deliver its moral that it loses its grip on the reality of its characters.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Though light on drama, Apple’s scenes at the shelter are easily the best part of the film, among the few moments when Gimme Shelter decides to show the effect of faith and charity rather than simply preach it.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    A clunky movie that feels as if it’s underwritten by the Roman Catholic Church.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Scott Bowles

    Preachy, manipulative and emotionally barren.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    From an artistic perspective, Ron Krauss’ heavy-handed drama, Gimme Shelter, fails almost entirely. But if the director set out to combine the stilted falsity of 1980s after-school specials with leaden political dogma, he’s certainly achieved his goals.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Louis Black

    Yearning to be a tale of familial abuse and social oppression finally overcome by personal triumphant transcendence through community and love, the film is instead the plainest of generic pop songs.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    A happy-smiley Christian fairy tale disguised as a hard-hitting shard of social realism.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    Writer-director Ron Krauss's Gimme Shelter is wretched long before its odious ulterior motives come to light.
