BC Good story, good acting (You can't go wrong with Tom Hanks and a cute dog as the stars...). I realize that this film presented a boots-on-the-ground, tactical perspective, and not a big picture view, but I wish the story would have provided a little more meat around the background of how he got to the place he was. Still, it was a very enjoyable flick. Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/07/21 Full Review Tim M Finch's narrative structure is a little like Swiss cheese, but an ever-endearing Tom Hanks and robot companion keeps it ticking. Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/07/24 Full Review Joe C Awful movie. Terrible script and waste of 2 hours of my life. Rated 1/5 Stars • Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/06/24 Full Review Josue H Filmaço! emocionante, chorei muito, ri demais, história envolvente, personagens extremamente carismáticos, efeitos especiais de ótima qualidade. Recomendo! Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/24 Full Review Andrei B The script looks like a typical BS generated by a ChatGPT 3.5. Unrealistic and pointless movie inherent to many contemporary streaming platforms. A tear squeezer that looks pitiful and ridiculous. Rated 2/5 Stars • Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/21/24 Full Review Pete H I found the movie funny and entertaining. I actually laughed during the film. I don't understand people not liking the movie.

Finch | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Jason Bailey The Playlist The trouble with this kind of mix-tape moviemaking is that when your film is dominated by echoes, it's difficult to make your own voice heard. Dec 28, 2021 Full Review Finch | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Paul Byrnes Sydney Morning Herald Hanks does what he can with this demeaning material, because he always gives his best, but what can you do with a movie where the dog gets all the good close-ups? Rated: 2/5 Nov 12, 2021 Full Review Finch | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Kimber Myers Crooked Marquee For a film where just one of the three named characters is an actual person, Finch exists as a surprisingly moving exploration of what it means to be human. Rated: A- Nov 11, 2021 Full Review Finch | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Gianmarco Farfán Cinencuentro In addition to the technological component, this film poses a fair criticism on the little capacity human beings have to conserve this beautiful planet... [Full review in Spanish] Aug 24, 2023 Full Review Finch | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Serena Seghedoni Loud and Clear Reviews With plenty of American Dream nostalgia and a great performance from Tom Hanks, AppleTV+’s Finch is ultimately a story about love in its purest form. Rated: 4/5 Aug 3, 2023 Full Review Finch | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Manuel São Bento MSB Reviews Finch is far from being the most impressive, imaginative post-apocalyptic, survival film, but it's still a captivating, character-driven story that boasts an emotionally resonant, meaningful personal journey.
