Village Voice
A needlessly circuitous plot twist leaves a bitter taste, but not before the film's scruffy charm does its work. Full Review
David Rooney
A richly textured drama with an angry poetic edge that gets inside the obsessive subculture of New York graffiti artists, Bomb the System signals the arrival of a talented filmmaker in NYU film graduate Adam Bhala Lough. Full Review
David Sterritt
Christian Science Monitor
Well acted and ably directed, if not very probing about its subject of underclass youth. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
The first feature from Adam Bhala Lough is brashly passionate in its desire to express the power and validity of graffiti art. But it's also preachy and single-minded, populated by a world of sympathetic heroes and hissable villains. Full Review
Ernest Hardy
L.A. Weekly
As Bomb snakes its way toward tragedy, it grates rather than entices. The actors come off more as poseurs than as characters, and the film's political and cultural insights are superficial and old hat. Full Review
