REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

4.5 of 5

“..was supposed to be a dud, but it's aimed in the right place, packed with brains and heart, and explosively fun..”
by James Rocchi [MSN Movies]
2 of 4

“..too much uninteresting dialogue about “mysterious” aliens to wade through – plus, oodles of nauseating jingoism and slow-motion heroism..”
by Adam Litovitz [Globe and Mail]
“..the screenplay, by Jon and Erich Hoeber, goes through such extraordinary narrative contortions in order to justify an allusion to the game's familiar grid-work board and guessing-game strategy..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]

by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..no characters, no plot, no natural tension..”

GONE GIRL :

“..expertly crafted entertainment, but falls short of Fincher's finest..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

AUTUMN BLOOD :

“.."Autumn Blood" is such a film, an odd, unpleasant 2011 thriller..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]

THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU :

THE SCRIBBLER :

“..the script that Dan Schaffer adapted from his graphic novel can't seem to find a credible dimensionality for his story or characters..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :

by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

DR. CABBIE :

“..it does so in a cheeky and charming way and, although Dr. Cabbie is clunky in places, it mostly works..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]

TUSK :

“..it's watchable, fun, sick, sad and has to be seen to be believed..”
by Kevin C. Johnson [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

RECLAIM :

“..a truly bonkers Z-grade thriller..”
by Drew Hunt [Slant Magazine]
