Sober Film Critic James Brown88 - Nimbly directed by Matt Ross, elevated by a heavenly blissful score, and beautifully acted by a cast of talented actors, the symbolism-drenched character study Captain Fantastic is, well, pretty fantastic.

Rob from GuysFilmQuest75 - Not as interesting a story as the premise seemed. A couple illogical characters really threw things off. Not a bad movie at all. Certainly had enjoyable parts. Decent performances. Nothing groundbreaking.
