"I wasn’t expecting something as fresh and different, so it far exceeded expectations. I’m very glad such a strange and original film now exists in my favorite genre." -Kyle Byrd of Kaiju Transmissions Podcast.
"This movie is a banana-sandwich...I was not remotely prepared for what it was...one of the most INTERESTING things I’ve seen in a while ... It's not predictable, it IS fun, and it's a wild ride. "
-Tom Gueli of Letterboxed.
"an interesting combination of documentary, docu-drama, meta-homage, and sequel to the original-but-now-lost film that inspired it. I'm so glad that "The Great Buddha Arrival" exists".
-Raf Enshohma of Raf Enshohma's Corner.
