- "‘The Enigma of Arrival’ is a dreamy dramatic thriller. Award-winning editor Yang Hongyu, whose past work includes Angels Wear White, Berlinale winner Black Coal, Thin Ice and John Woo’s Red Cliff, delivers another hit. "
- "This film combines a naturalistic depiction of young people’s lives in China with an engaging crime/mystery drama in a way that is well worth watching."
- "The Enigma of Arrival is filled with suspense and drama."
- "A melancholy ode to ruined friendship and the nostalgia of bygone adolescent possibility, Enigma of Arrival is a suitably abstract effort from the founder of the XINING FIRST International Film Festival and signals a bold new voice on the Chinese indie scene."
