One Direction: This Is Us Reviews Are In!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

One Direction: This Is Us opened in the U.K. and if you close your eyes, you can almost hear the squeal of the British preteens all the way across the pond. 

How does the film play out for those who don't have their walls plastered with posters of the boy band?

Let's turn to some critics and see what the One Direction: This Is Us reviews have to say!

One Direction: This Is Us Poster

With slick concert footage, no mention of girlfriends or groupies and the group PG confessions round a campfire there is plenty to keep the fans happy. -- Natalie Edwards, Mirror

No warts, no acne -- there's not even a pimple on the butt of this on-tour portrait of the reality-bred boy popsters. -- Cath Clarke, Time Out

They rattle through all the hits, like Kiss You, Rock Me and I Would: songs that leave you pining for the harmonic complexity and lyrical daring of Justin Bieber. -- Robbie Collin,  Daily Telegraph

This is not a film. It's propaganda. -- Simon Reynolds, Digital Spy

The Directioners' global conquest has been likened to Beatlemania, but This Is Us is no A Hard Day's Night. -- Caroline Frost, Huffington Post UK

The film's central fivesome prove charming pallbearers throughout the film, which alternates between inspired and insipid as it hits its hagiographic marks. Directioners should show up in full force. -- Andrew Barker, Variety
