“..this film is loaded with purposely shaky camerawork, making it hard to see what's what and who's who amid all the Mo-sick cinematography..”
by Jordan Mintzer [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 5

“..this cliched and slightly hand-me-down script neither scares nor amuses very satisfyingly..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
“..it all makes for clumsy-fun escapism, not bad as end-of-summer chillers go, but small-time compared with other Legendary releases..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
3 of 5

“..boasts sporadically electrifying visuals but a frustratingly messy mythology..”
by Matt Risley [Total Film]

“..it's not bad, but it's puzzling why director Peter Askin and King himself bothered to adapt a nondescript novella from the Master of Horror's autumn years..”
by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice]

MAS NEGRO QUE LA NOCHE :

“..this might just be the silliest Mexican movie of the year, 3D or not..”

THE EQUALIZER :

“..a stone-dumb movie, unwilling to allow Washington even a hint of uniqueness (apart from the usual silverware straightening and public book reading, shorthand cliches for "smart")..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

THE BOXTROLLS :

“..delectable treat that balances themes of identity and class warfare with Monty Python-style political skewering, quirky humor and dairy jokes..”

SAINT LAURENT :

“..pure haute couture - considerably more spectacular, but also less practical, with its baroque ornamentation and slip-sliding chronology..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN :

“..painfully well-meaning but largely unpersuasive bid for cross-generational understanding feels at once of-the-moment and too obvious by half..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
