Critic Consensus: Burden grapples clumsily with its undeniably worthy themes, but its honorable intentions -- and strong performances -- make it easy to forgive those flaws.

Critic Reviews for Burden
"Burden" does a great job of giving the viewer a look at the lives of those in the KKK beyond their hatred, but it misses the mark on making an impact on the viewer.
"Burden" is a film of integrity, with something even better than a social conscience. It has a social purpose. If you see it, you'll learn something.
Writer and director Andrew Heckler has managed to make a powerful film, if not a very subtle one.
I think it has a great cast and there are some good performances, but I thought at times the direction wasn't great and it veered into that white savior territory.
Overall, Burden is too long and many of its beats have been appropriated from other movies about Southern racism.
