Hannah Strong of Little White Lies writes, “What a fun, s*xy time for you.”

David Ehrlich of IndieWire wrote on X, “Challengers is a f*cking *blast.* the most fun i’ve had at the movies this year. a deliriously hot tennis drama about the animating force of desire in all its forms, backstopped by the best performance of Zendaya’s career.”

Alonso Duralde of The Film Verdict says, “Erotically charged, intricately plotted, and breathlessly stylish, Luca Guadagnino’s Challengers delivers pleasure at every turn.”

Autostraddle’s Drew Gregory, praising the Dune: Part Two star, writes, “Zendaya is so good in this role, it’s impossible to imagine anyone else playing it. She utilizes her celebrity as well as her acting talent to create a larger than life figure still recognizable and human.”

Caryn James of BBC.com says, “Perfectly pleasant to watch, it never becomes thoroughly engrossing, as the characters often slip from enigmatic to thinly-written. It isn’t bad, but it is underwhelming.”
