3.0         Pinoy Exchange

Talk Back and You’re Dead feels like it has bitten off more than it can chew, yet in a way it feels okay with the kilig that the leads bring to the picture. It’s not the type of movie that can explain the deeper meaning of life, but it is the movie that can melt your heart.” (Read full review)

2.5         Gia Allana Soriano (PEP)

Talk Back and You’re Dead is a teen flick meant for young teens and the teen at heart. It’s pure romance with unresolved sub-plots. It’s entertaining as long as you don’t look any deeper than the kilig and don’t expect more than the giddy feelings idealistic love can give.” (Read full review)

“Panoorin kung fan ka ni James Reid or ng JaDine at gusto mong maaliw sa mga eksena nila. Kung istorya ang habol mo, mas OK kung babasahin mo na lang yung libro kung saan based ang pelikulang ito. Otherwise, panoorin kung wala ka nang ibang magawa.” (Read full review)

1.5         Zig Marasigan (Rappler)

“Fans of the original novelette may be able to make sense of what’s going on, but for the rest of us, Talk Back and You’re Dead is a mish-mash of scenes that are neither sensible nor logical.” (Read full review)

1.5         Philbert Dy (Click the City)

“By the end, Talk Back and You’re Dead makes so little sense that it may as well be taking place in an entirely different universe. What starts out as a weird little tale of animosity growing into affection turns into a monster of melodramatic convolutions reliant on information that’s mostly hidden from the audience.” (Read full review)
