"Watch it and it’s magical; fantastic in all senses. It’s the biggest risk of del Toro’s career and it could not have paid off more."
★★★★★
- Olly Richards, Empire Magazine

"It offers what must be cinema’s uneasiest probing of the post-war American psyche since Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master - and is unquestionably del Toro’s best, richest film since his 2006 Spanish-language masterpiece Pan’s Labyrinth"
★★★★★
- Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph

"It is hard to over-state how good Hawkins is in this role. Speech is an actor’s most potent weapon, but she gives a masterclass in how you to move and charm an audience without it"
★★★★★
- Brian Viner, Daily Mail

"The Shape of Water may just be his most touching fantasy yet."
★★★★★
- David Sexton, London Evening Standard

"Arguably del Toro’s best film to date (yes it may be better than Pan’s Labyrinth."
★★★★★
- Jimmy Nsubuga, Metro

"Del Toro provides just enough spade-work to keep the scheme plausible and his film is stylish and charming; red meat for the senses with some sugar on top."
★★★★
- Geoffrey Macnab, Guardian

"This is a monster movie but it plays like a Beauty and the Beast-style romance."
★★★★
- Geoffrey Macnab, Independent

"The Shape of Water may not be suitable for children but it has enough disarming charm to briefly make you feel like one."
★★★★
- Raphael Abraham, Financial Times
