A victory on points, if not quite a knockout blow.Time OutMarch 26, 2018
Journeyman is a gentler human drama than Considine's terrific but tough directorial debut 'Tyrannosaur' but equally emotional.The Straits Times (Singapore)April 18, 2018
In [Jodi] Whittaker's hands, [Emma] is a reminder of everything the damaged boxer has lost and needs to find again.Irish TimesApril 13, 2018
Thoughtful, tender-hearted drama pivots around the actor-turned-director's central performance, but that turn is never allowed to overshadow terrific work by [Jodi] Whittaker and [Anthony] WelshFilm InquiryApril 05, 2018
A disappointing follow-up, then, to Tyrannosaur's fresh whirlwind of emotion. Journeyman is the stale air that follows.Daily Mirror (UK)April 02, 2018
Boxing is never condemned as Considine is fascinated by his subject. And as an example of his talent and commitment to filmmaking, this film is a knockoutShadows on the WallApril 02, 2018
With a tightly-focused script, this film feels perhaps a bit slight, like a short stretched to feature length. But it skillfully captures a sense of real life for characters caught in an extraordinary situation.Irish IndependentApril 02, 2018
Paddy Considine's dark and worthy drama Journeyman gives the boxing genre a sombre twist.Sunday Times (UK)April 02, 2018
[Paddy] Considine, who plays the part, isn't too convincing as a top-level fighter. But then it's not as if the film is much more persuasive in any other regard, beyond its well-meant performances.Sunday Independent (Ireland)April 02, 2018

Journeyman doesn't land the punches you'd expect from a boxing movie.Observer (UK)April 01, 2018
The film is a little self-serious, and the story's recovery arc wraps up too tidily, but as a character study - and showcase for Considine and Whittaker's considerable gifts as actors - it's surprisingly interesting and angular.
