“Equal parts campy pulp and gritty crime drama, Jeeg pulls the unusual combo off well, regularly dipping toes into very dark waters while always maintaining a deviant sense of humour.” – Collider

“Italy finally gets its own superhero, and the results are surprisingly gritty and thoroughly enjoyable.” – Variety
