REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  3 of 5 [Rate It]

“..somewhat less inflammatorily..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]
“..not interviewed by the filmmakers are Obama's political supporters, but this isn't that kind of documentary..”
by Andy Webster [NY Times]
1.5 of 5

“..not all of 2016 is a mess-parts of it are nuanced and engaging..”
by Phil Contrino [Boxoffice Magazine]
1.5 of 4

“..D'Souza makes it all sound almost plausible, but only if you're predisposed to believe that Obama hates America. It's bashing, all right, but with a velvet-gloved fist..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]
“..as an example of our national discourse, it's mostly just depressing..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
“..although the film is unlikely to sway the undecided, it actually starts out as a fairly measured and informative recap of Obama's personal history..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

DEATH DO US PART :

“..this is a nice one that hits the marks it needs to in just enough fashion..”
by Chuck Conry [ZombiesDontRun.net]

NO GOD, NO MASTER :

“..No God, No Master, his newest work - indicate that Green is both a capable filmmaker and a clear history buff..”
by Danny King [Village Voice]

ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE :

“..one of the strongest films yet from Jim Jarmusch..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

JOE :

“..it's a shame the film lacks the same subtlety and force. Joe is about starting over before it's too late..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PERFECT SISTERS :

“..much of the film is slipshod, but the domestic crisis (Mom's new boyfriend is an abusive creep) packs a real wallop, as does the solution..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

RIO 2 :

“.."Rio 2" is not what I would call Amazon prime, but it's got enough silly songs and daffy critters to keep the little ones happy..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

OCULUS :

“..for all its genre delights, Oculus is little more than a well-tooled creepshow..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]

DRAFT DAY :

“..while "Draft Day" is a very agreeable and predictable movie, it is also very timely..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 :

“..a patchy script, disappointing action and lackluster villain..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

BAD ASSES :

“..a completely predictable made-for-home video offering, but for those looking for a rather mindless ninety minutes of comic action, it can serve as a reliable time passer..”
by Matt Hough [Home Theater Forum]
