Modest and charming, THE LAST MIMZY is unusual children's fare, and SF film with a contemporary setting and minimal effects, relying on a compelling mystery and ideas.
Sight and Sound
Rating: 3/6 -- It's refreshing to be reminded that an intelligent, exciting family movie isn't always an oxymoron. Full Review
Considering that parts are frightening, parts are nauseatingly sweet, and it's all confusing, it's not clear which demographic Mimzy is aiming for.
Washington City Paper
Rating: B -- New Line powerbroker/director Robert Shaye has made a children's film for stoners, a trippy, psychedelic fable that belongs in the DVD section of New Age bookstores alongside the strangely similar What The Fuck Do We Know? Full Review
[T]he newcomer kids are delightfully...kidlike. -- Grade: B
Rating: 2.5/4 -- Features moments both ridiculous and sublime, contrived and inspired, and somewhere in between something truly magical happens - The Last Mimzy steals our hearts. Full Review
The Dispatch (Lexington, NC)
Rating: 2.5/4 -- The adult cast is an ensemble effort filled with solid performances. Full Review
Two kids find a bizarre box on the beach and are soon exhibiting signs of off-the-chart genius in this gently mind-blowing fantasy film. Little Emma (Rhiannon Leigh Wryn) finds a cute bunny doll in the box, who talks to her in electronic code, and Noah (Chris O'Neil) learns to speak in a frequency that lets him control spiders. The kids learn to move objects via psychokinesis and communicate telepathically. Naturally, their parents (Timothy Hutton and Joely Richardson) wonder what is going on here. Noah's science teacher (Rainn Wilson) has dreams predicting all this, centered on a mandala symbol from ancient Tibetan Buddhism, which Noah draws in class. Michael Clarke Duncan is suitably dour as the Homeland Security official who investigates when the kids' newfound power creates a major blackout across Seattle. Parents who cringe at the vulgarity of many kid films will certainly appreciate LAST MIMZY's sweet-natured awe towards the natural world and its inhabitants, which comes without extraneous action or excessive musical bombast. The film moves with a poetic grace, calling attention to environmental and social problems without preaching, and creating the possibility for a genuinely better world. The child actors are real naturals who are allowed to talk and sound like kids, and car chases and explosions are all but absent in place of genuine mystery and excitement about human potential. It's rare to find a sci-fi film that makes the future seem worth saving, so consider this one a true gem.
