"If the Australian film industry wants a new champion then give Ren Thackham a decent budget and watch her thrive. That’s not a director, THIS is a director."

~ Screen Critix

"Think Mad Max meets Christopher Nolan’s storytelling structure where he plays with certain elements to add a whole new level of amazement."

~ The Utah Film Awards

"Filling a longer movie surely would take a lot more scripting work. Yet I think it's safe to say that Ren Thackham would be up to the task. If this title [Round Trip] is any indication that is. Thumbs up. That was fun."

"Round Trip" is a one-two-punch action flick with a huge helping of science fiction. Ren Thackham aims to please and does just that.

"Whenever I see an Australian film cross my desk, the expectations increase. Thackham lives up to those expectations and actually surpasses them."

~ The Independent Critic
