The film, according to Adrian Horton, a writer for The Guardian, depicts “the intoxication” of Swift’s “temple.”

Rolling Stone’s Roy Sheffield remarked that the interactive theatrical experience revitalizes the genre by deftly avoiding all concert film tropes.

He wrote, “…no fan interviews, no backstage melodrama, and no voice-over explanations; just an evening of music in which every performer is a star.”

Sheffield continued, “Just as the tour is more audacious and daring than anything else she has attempted onstage, Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour is unlike anything else she or anyone else has done onscreen.”

Nell Geraets, a writer for the Sydney Morning Herald, awarded the film four stars and described it as a “extraordinary ode to Swift’s fans.”

“As soon as the camera diverts away from the celebrity, it focuses on audience members—delightful admirers who are overcome with tears in their eyes.” It is the epitome of fandom when a young lady sees her idol for the very first time in person. “By means of these shots, the driving force behind Swift’s meteoric rise to fame is unveiled,” she explained.
