Malick is employing his usual style of montage and voice-over narration but in a new, contemporary setting that makes Wonder feel like his most vital work in years.

Noah Gittell, The Atlantic, 2014-04-16

 

What is most affecting is Malick's intent. He plainly devised the story to give him a series of panels for the expression of feeling.

Stanley Kauffmann, The New Republic, 2013-06-13

 

Does it deserve to be seen? Absolutely. Just be aware of what you're getting into.

Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 2013-04-18

 

"To the Wonder" finds Malick pursuing a form of visual storytelling that is closer to chamber music, or symphonic rapture, than conventional film narrative.

Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, 2013-04-18

 

To the Wonder suggests the creep of doubt and possibly even despair into Malick's cosmic questing. This may not be as profound as he intends - to be human is to forever question - but it makes for stimulating viewing.

Peter Howell, Toronto Star, 2013-04-18

 

It serves up real emotion, and striking grace. It has moments of simple beauty, and thorny questions.

Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, 2013-04-12

 

There is no new ground, really, the distinction is in the way Malick covers it with glorious imagery, symphonies of sound, a cacophony of moods.

Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, 2013-04-11

 

Love is a many-splendored thing, except when it isn't in To the Wonder, a wispy romantic movie about the death of a romance.

Michael Sragow, Orange County Register, 2014-03-03

 

The movie plays like an undercooked pie that hasn't had enough time to cool and settle.

Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald, 2013-05-03

 

Essentially it's an agglomeration of Malick's worst stylistic annoyances.

Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor, 2013-04-26

 

A thing of great beauty, but not much more.

Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic, 2013-04-25

 

We should not be exiting a Terrence Malick movie with a shrug, but there it is.

Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com, 2013-04-23

 

Chary of exposition, meagre of plot, derisory of dialogue, indifferent to comprehension, it's a project that veers perilously close to self-parody.

Michael Posner, Globe and Mail, 2013-04-19

 

Mostly, it's solemn intonations of bad poetry over open-field twirling scenes and long serious looks of love, tenderness and cosmic understanding.

Tom Long, Detroit News, 2013-04-19

 

"To the Wonder" is a trailer for itself, although it could be mistaken for a high-end perfume commercial ...

John Anderson, Newsday, 2013-04-18

 

There's a little too much wonder and not quite enough story in this middling effort from Terrence Malick.

J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, 2013-04-18

 

The individually ravishing but loosely bound shots reduce whatever weight the story might have to the trivial narcissism of Caribbean-travel commercials.

David Denby, New Yorker, 2013-04-15

 

There are moments of pure poetry in the movie but the production as a whole seems overlong and repetitive and takes a detour or two that distract from the aching beauty of the central story.

James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 2013-04-14

 

There's little doubt this film will deepen, open up with a second viewing. But to what end?

Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, 2013-04-12

 

The cinematography here is enough to make you swoon. Would that the story were equally compelling.

Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, 2013-04-12
