Underdrawn and overheated, Cool World will leave you cold. [13 Jul 1992]
30
The plot of Michael Grais's and Mark Victor's screenplay is even more nonsensical than it needs to be. [11 Jul 1992]
25
It never seriously establishes the ground rules of the principle of transference or the relationship between the two of them, and so what follows is gibberish. [14 Jul 1992]
25
The only thing that keeps Cool World from imploding is that Bakshi turns it into a series of animator's riffs, with little explosions of toon action erupting like video game novas into the foreground of the story that isn't happening. [10 Jul 1992]
25
A fatally compromised, half-realized execution. [ 10 Jul 1992]
25
Cool World is less artful, short on scripted finesse, and is lacking technical acumen. [11 Jul 1992]
