I liked the movie, but did not know before I went that it was in Vietnamese with English subtitles.

Village Voice
Tran's reliance on declamatory political dialogue and movie-of-the-week inspirationalism feels decidedly old-fashioned and, finally, even phony. Full Review
Bill White
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
The film may be like looking through a stranger's scrapbook. With sketchy and didactic scenes lacking narrative cohesion, it is a collection of often strong images that fail to come to life. Full Review
G. Allen Johnson
San Francisco Chronicle
If there is a beef to be had, it is that Tran seems to have tried so hard to make a movie of importance that his characters often resemble archetypes as opposed to people; the game cast appears straitjacketed at times. Still, it's a story that needed to be told. Full Review
Janice Page
Boston Globe
Even when its wires are showing, the movie's soul is always evident. Full Review
Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times
An example of sophisticated, impassioned filmmaking involving mainly people who lived through the harrowing experiences so unsparingly depicted, Journey From the Fall powerfully illustrates the refugee/immigrant experience. Full Review
