there is no such thing as a good critic (joke Oscar Wilde style), and one never lets them pas the door, which would be the only way to receive a critic.
Critique is ok in english. Review would be the best word

I agree with shimself...a good critique or review would be acceptable en anglais.

I agree; a critic is a person, a critique is a thing (and usually stated as a review in this case). Loved the Oscar Wilde reference!
