    IGN - Melissa Grey Jul 3, 2013

    Simone manages to balance humor with menace in a way few writers can. Mouse is proving to be this title's go-to comic relief, but even Burden is given his chance to cleverly quip. Virtue continues to act as the group's moral compass, and the book ends with her delivering Coral City's police chief an ultimatum that neatly bookends the theme of the issue: You're with us, or you're against us.Less fully realized are The Movement's villains -- they're about as one dimensional as they come. They're greedy, vile, and corrupt in the worst possible ways. Should Simone inject as much nuance into her baddies as she does into her heroes, The Movement will be a tough book to beat.

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Jul 3, 2013

    The Movement has shown great pacing for only being on its third issue and is a promising story to unfold. The art style is good, fits the mature tone of the book, and adds to that feeling that you should take the book seriously. In general it does take itself seriously, yet allows freedom for so much of this world to be explored because this is a part of the DC Universe that we haven't really gotten a chance to see. This is one action packed story which I have to recommend you to pick up. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 9, 2013

    Most of the books in the New DC have been about relaunching existing properties, and retooling characters who never quite caught on, but this book is one of the first to take an entirely new concept and run with it. Tonally, it reminds me of Tony Isabella's runs on 'Black Lightning' in the 70s and the 90s, with a world that clearly has superhumans in it, but still has the same ills and the same human problems regardless. The Movement #3 is a good book, one that seems to be getting tied to a political POV more than the actual content would seem to warrant, delivering thought-provoking action that doesn't feel overly familiar to me.

    DC Comics News - Eric Thompson Jul 11, 2013

    Once again, The Movement comes across as very strong. The idea behind the comic is great and feels a bit unique for a mainstream comic. A breath of fresh air is always welcome, as long as it is done right, and so far The Movement has been firing on most cylinders. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Hank Johnson Jul 7, 2013

    I'll keep reading The Movement for the rest of the run because Simone has earned my trust with her previous work and I am hopeful she can turn it around from near misses and ineffective humor to the compelling social narrative that lies underneath. Read Full Review

    The issue strives to grab my attention, and yet most of the time I find my attention wandering elsewhere"not unlike my reaction to Occupy. Read Full Review
