New York Post

By Farran Smith Nehme

The forced plotting and Lifetime movie-style tearjerking are a chore, and commercial prospects look narrow, but if this is indeed a good-faith effort to preach beyond the choir, it deserves plaudits.

By Frank Scheck
Least Among Saints has the strained feel of a basic cable television movie, with modest production values to match.

By Marc Savlov
Least Among Saints is a heartfelt if not exactly heartwarming story of two wounded males, but despite top-notch performances from all the leads, it never really brings anything new to a story that's already overly familiar.
