Snoop has certainly tempered his worldview, but enlightenment isn't as evident here as much as a woozy weariness, perhaps a long-term byproduct of being very, very stoned. full review

Andy Webster, New York Times

In its simplest moments ... "Reincarnated" presents an honesty that is its own reward. It shows us an old Dogg with no tricks. full review

Mikael Wood, Los Angeles Times

Snoop's involvement as a producer does a disservice to the film. Was there anyone behind the scenes with veto power? full review

Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle

Snoop is a fascinating figure who deserves better than this puff piece. full review

Leor Galil, Chicago Reader

The rap artist's spiritual journey (he's now Snoop Lion) seems earned, rather than the publicity stunt others might have caught a whiff of originally. full review

Miriam Bale, New York Daily News

The whole thing does feel like a self-indulgent exercise on the part of Snoop, though he remains an artist of undeniable substance. In this case, a controlled substance. full review

Bruce Demara, Toronto Star

If you're a sober fan of Snoop Dogg's rap songs, as I am, you're in trouble. full review

Odie Henderson, Chicago Sun-Times

The film is as lightweight as the ganja-puffing is plentiful, little more than a vanity project that allows its subject to wax philosophical on his past triumphs, tragedies, and spiritual development ... full review

Nick Schager, Village Voice

The whole thing ends up feeling like a superficial cross between a starstruck version of Vice's gonzo travelogues and a highly (ahem) stage-managed portrait of an artist in transition. full review
