“..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]

“..Rogue Nation may not be the best, the tightest, or even the most logically coherent M:I flick, but there should be more movies like it: relentlessly thrilling, smart entertainments for folks..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]


“..everyone deserves a vacation. And everyone deserves a better comedy than "Vacation"..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]


“..the adaptation of Paper Towns is a failure. But even as it fails to either develop or subvert its characterization of Margo, it succeeds in complicating all of its ancillary characters..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]


“..a predictable flurry of melodramatic jabs..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]


“..The Vatican Tapes is comparatively inert, even though it features a lot of the askew camera angles and jump-cuts that fans of the Crank series expect..”
by Noel Murray [A.V. Club]


“..every joke is forced, every special effect is un-special..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]


“..for a movie about surprises, though, there really aren't many... this academic study tends to feel like it's by the book..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]


“..if it weren't for Sy's charm and cinematographer Stephane Fontaine's superb eye (the scenes set at the immigration detainee camp are especially evocative from a visual standpoint), Samba would be a total wash..”
by Keith Uhlich [A.V. Club]


“..alas, this doesn't excuse the film's childish simplicity, be it a line of cheesy dialogue, an overused camera trick, or the primitive romance..”
by Nikola Grozdanovic [The Playlist]


“..Martin's script holds some hard-boiled appeal, but his direction (some nice technical flourishes aside) doesn't back it up..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
