  • “Brendan Fraser gives a transcendent, once-in-a-lifetime performance, with everyone else at the top of their craft. No one finds beauty in misery like Darren Aronofsky, and ‘The Whale’ is his latest stroke of mastery.”

    – Robert Kojder, FLICKERING MYTH
  • “It is simply unfathomable to even consider Fraser not receiving a Best Actor nomination for this performance... truly astonishing.”

    – Dallas King, FLICK FEAST
  • “The performance of a lifetime…Fraser is transcendent.”

    – Roger Moore, MOVIE NATION
  • “A sharp script is delivered with slow brutality by Darren Aronofsky who gets to the heart of what it means to be Charlie. ‘The Whale’ isn’t just a great film -- it’s an important one, too.”

    – Ryan Leston, IGN MOVIES
  • “Darren Aronofsky's testament to empathy and redemption shatters you, before putting you back together. Brendan Fraser gives the performance of a lifetime. Once ‘The Whale’ grabs you, it will not let go!”

    – Joey Magidson, AWARDS RADAR
  • “A piercing, compassionate parable about grace and reconciliation, told with truly Biblical force.”

    – Robbie Collin, DAILY TELEGRAPH (UK)
