Boston Globe
Perhaps urban-planning solutions are too much to expect from a Friday night at the movies, but in a film this ambitious, the evident lack of thought put into the problem is disappointing. As any architect knows, it's easier to tear down than to build up. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
It's a compact and symmetrical picture with all its plot points in the right places, but I never found it convincing in the slightest. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
Despite an intriguing premise in which the architect of a housing project is confronted by a resident-turned-activist who wants his help in getting the place torn down, Matt Tauber's The Architect feels schematic and contrived. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
While it provides a sometimes thoughtful examination of modern sociological issues, The Architect unfortunately succumbs to melodrama in its depiction of its troubled characters. Full Review
Jack Mathews
New York Daily News
There are too many characters undergoing life changes in the story for each to be properly developed in an 82-minute movie. But for the most part, the actors get the work done. Full Review
