“..watching this is like flipping channels randomly between a Masterpiece Theatre drama and a splatter film on Cinemax..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
2 of 4

“..this isn't "period" style; it's just sloppy..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
“..the whole thing collapses into an incoherent mess..”
2.5 of 4

“..the concept of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is worthy of a good chuckle or two, but the execution proves that sometimes a clever title does not beget a production of equal value..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
1 of 5

“..never comes close to a metafictional trope that inspired or, for that matter, heartfelt; rather, it's content to wallow in its own high concept, which is already more than a little trite..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]

“..joyless, deafening cinematic headache commits a different crime. It's a sin against entertainment..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
1.5 of 4

“..is almost no fun at all..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
2 of 5

“..high-camp concept with a straight face, sucking all the fun out of a geeky romp and leaving behind an oddly joyless slog that rarely seems to be in on the joke of itself..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
“..credibly delivers the thrills and gore it promises, though it's ultimately too lightweight and conventional to merit either cult or classic status..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
“..a deft balance of silly, straight-faced and splattery..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

JAMES WHITE :

“..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]

THE BRONZE :

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

A LITTLE GAME :

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

MORTDECAI :

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