Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
The novelty of the idea, which suggests a less elegant offshoot of M. C. Escher drawings, quickly wears thin. The production design is too busy, and the film's desaturated palette is forbiddingly austere.Stephen Holden, New York Times, 03.14.2013
Upside Down is a very fancy piece of junk.Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, 03.13.2013
Absent any emotional grounding, the film is a gorgeous, sterile construction, like a dream city unoccupied by humans.Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, 03.15.2013
Despite its undeniably clever conceit and visuals, this love story set in twin worlds remains earthbound.Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, 03.14.2013
