"BlackBerry is funny, fast and nerve-rattling. And it is always – always – intensely entertaining."

— Barry Hertz, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

"It’s an affectionately told story of Canadian innovation, loss of innocence and of unlikely bedfellows making entrepreneurial magic."

— David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

"With BlackBerry, Johnson manages to craft a thrilling and moving story about friendship, pride, and the brutality of the free market."

— Marco Vito Oddo, Collider

"Like a shark in the kiddie pool, Howerton delivers the kind of performance that can make a career, or force audiences to totally reconsider an actor’s potential."

— Peter Debruge, Variety

"It is a loving — and highly entertaining — ode to the outcasts who dream of nothing more than a life filled with fixing whirring gadgets and afternoons spent in 'Star Trek' matinees."

— Rafaela Sales Ross, The Playlist

"With a good deal of zippy snark à la 'The Social Network' and a sense of deadpan comedy straight from the 'Succession' playbook, BlackBerry is the kind of mid-budget marvel that doesn’t seem to come around often anymore."

— Steph Green, IndieWire

"Johnson and co-writer Matthew Miller turn the story of RIM’s brisk rise and meteoric fall into a kind of breathless tech fever dream, a relentless but addictive downbeat human comedy about the struggle to stay on top in a fast-moving industry."

— Lee Marshall, Screen Daily
