The movie’s “believe in yourself” message is borne out, in a perverse way, by the very fact that it even exists. And yet the whole thing remains nakedly idiotic.- Glenn Kenny @ The NY Times (Full Review Here)

It is one of the darkest, most dismaying films I have ever seen, much less one ostensibly made for children. - Emily Yoshida @ Vulture (Full Review Here)

Pretty much the worst movie you'll see all year. - Jordan Hoffman @ New York Daily News (Full Review Here)

The Emoji Movie Is Perfect If You Enjoy Seeing the Disappointed Faces of Children - Dave Holmes @ Esquire (Full Review Here)

“The Emoji Movie” may be as depressing of a film experience as anything to come out this year but if the reaction of the kids that I saw it with is any indication, there may be hope for the future after all. - Roger Ebert @ Himself (Full Review Here)

Abandon all hope, ye who enter here. - Helen O'Hara @ Empire Magazine (Full Review Here)
