    Kenean Buell, who produced this picture, "The Weakling," had to tell graphically a story with sufficient human significance and has made of it a very desirable offering, full of merit. The picture sets before us the troubles of a youth richly endowed by nature, but sorely tried by lack of physical courage until, at the end, he overcomes the defect, winning thereby the girl of his choice. As a whole it is a very fine offering though a bit too long at the end. Kenean Buell, who produced it, is deserving of very high commendation. - The Moving Picture World, July 4, 1914
