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]
3 of 5

“..the movie drags on way too long..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

“..overlong and numbing military-vs.-aliens saga with laughably bad dialogue..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..no characters, no plot, no natural tension..”
by Bob Mondello [NPR]

“..it's loud, it's large, it's stupid, and its best gag involves a chicken burrito..”
by Amy Biancolli [San Francisco Chronicle]
2 of 5

“..it's all very earnest, but it's not a whole lot of fun..”
by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times]
“..it even-please fine me for saying this-makes Michael Bay's Transformersmovies look rollicking by comparison..”
by Dana Stevens [Slate]
1.5 of 4

“..dumb, noisy, and flashy..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..dopey, preposterous and unintentionally hilarious in all the wrong place..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

MAS NEGRO QUE LA NOCHE :

“..this might just be the silliest Mexican movie of the year, 3D or not..”
by Eric Ortiz Garcia [TwitchFilm]

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..”
by Brian Truitt [USA Today]

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]

REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS :

“..an ambitious English language attempt to give Chinese American gangs their day is disappointingly uninvolving..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

FISHING WITHOUT NETS :

“..offers instead is a slick sense of style and a surfeit of credible detail..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY :

“..The Two Faces Of January may not be trying anything bold, original, or especially complicated, but what it does, it does well..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

FIELD OF LOST SHOES :

“..the film stands as a pinnacle of revisionist bullshit..”
by Nick Schager [Village Voice]

GOOD PEOPLE :

“..predictable, pat conclusion and betrays its generally solid performances and respectable artistic pedigree..”
by Cary Darling [Fort Worth Star-Telegram]
