“..ultimately, a celebration of the silly and the sweet, a combination that's welcome again and again..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

“..the loosey-goosey magic of the first movie is gone, replaced by endless jokes about disappointing sequels. Point proven..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
“..Lord and Miller know how to sell a joke visually better than most contemporary comedy directors, and "22 Jump Street" is rife with delightful throwaway visual gags..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

“..like any savvy sophomore, this comedy sequel knows there's a trick to getting a passing grade..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]

“..its huge laugh count, and for the best end credits sequence in recent memory, it registers as this year's live action comedy to beat..”
by Simon Brew [Den of Geek]
3.5 of 5

“..if you liked 21 Jumps Street, you'll like 22 Jump Street, because it's pretty much the same movie. So while the film is wickedly funny from start-to-finish, be warned that you'll feel a sense of deja vu throughout..”
by Chris Tilly [IGN]
“..for once, cranking out a play-it-safe sequel yields something satisfying..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
Review rate : B+

“.."22 Jump Street" might not be quite as good as "21 Jump Street," but it's remarkably close, to the point where subsequent viewings could see it elevated above its predecessor..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]


“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]


“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]


“..though the books are brilliant, Depp's attempt to make his own Terry-Thomas movie feels tired and more than a little tortured..”
by Ali Plumb [Empire Online]


“..it's not much fun at all, but at least it's over..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]


“..the new animated musical fairy tale from the mind and the mixtape of George Lucas, is indeed strange. What's missing is the magic..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]


“..Patrick Tobin's infuriatingly coy script... turning the film into a morbid guessing game..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]


“..the same elements that have endeared or alienated viewers of Dolan's previous films are all here in Mommy..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]


“..Scoot McNairy is a terrifically spineless, whining mouthpiece for the adventurer who financed the journey, and Ben Mendelsohn is a terrifying underwater psycho. The whole thing adds up to a watery grave of claustrophobia-but that can be pretty terrifying..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]


“..Song One has its heart in the right place (on its sleeve)-it's just in desperate need of a few strong hooks..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]
