The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Liam Lacey
The film is too slapdash and self-serving to take seriously (it’s release is timed to the precede thesame-named album’s release next month), but it’s a casually entertaining trip, aimed at fans of the charismatic rapper and his recreational substance of choice.

The Hollywood Reporter

By David Rooney
An all-access pass to an artist embarking on a new path, this is entertaining stuff – funny, disarming, even poignant. It's also jammed with terrific music.

New York Daily News

Director Andy Capper crafts a surprisingly moving story, particularly in Snoop’s reactions to the deaths of Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur.

Austin Chronicle

By Marjorie Baumgarten
More honest than you might expect a promotional piece such as this to be, but less self-investigative than you might like, you come away thinking there are much greater depths for Snoop Lion to plumb.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Peter Hartlaub
It's a stoner movie all the way, with much deep thought but little active conflict.

Chicago Sun-Times

Reincarnated seems more interested in showing us countless scenes of people smoking herb than in giving us details about the making of the album it purports to be documenting. Granted, Snoop is immersing himself in a culture where this is a customary process, but it gets old and tired very quickly.

Total Film

It’s a premise that sounds like the silliest of celebrity vanity but is, in fact, presented as an endearing portrayal of Rastafari culture, spiritual exploration and Snoop’s own past, present and future.

Time Out New York

By David Fear
And though Capper captures a few truly intimate moments, like the star humbly participating in a Rasta ritual, the whole thing ends up feeling like a superficial cross between a starstruck version of Vice’s gonzo travelogues and a highly (ahem) stage-managed portrait of an artist in transition.

Empire

By Patrick Peters
It features more weed than a pot-warming party at Bill & Ben's but offers little more than spliff-glazed promotion for Snoop's reggae reincarnation.

Slant Magazine

Essentially 90-minute promo video carefully orchestrated by the artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg and his handlers.
