REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

1.5 of 5

“..the title doesn't really match the performances - no one here goes out on a limb for anything. The entire production set it's goals so low that even though everyone involved hits their mark..”
by Clayton Hollifield [Clayholio Watches Movies]
1.5 of 5

“..so predictable-even if the movie tries to surprise you by proffering almost zero clues-is a marvel of cinematic ignorance..”
by Paul Arrand Rodgers [Fear of a Ghost Planet]
2.5 of 5

“..a stinker buddy cop comedy that is the antithesis of convolution, and possibly the definition of slow moving. Edge and Kennedy have no chemistry..”
by Nate Boss [High-Def Digest]

WETLANDS :

“..Juri's performance makes it impossible to divert your eyes from the screen, no matter how much you might want to, and a brave film that eventually succumbs to convention is still braver than most..”
by David Ehrlich [Film.com]

GOD HELP THE GIRL :

“..the cutesiness will entice/repel viewers in equal measure, but it has a lot of heart, and displays it on its sleeve..”
by Emma Johnston [Total Film]

FRONTERA :

“..Frontera is, on a whole, more interested in situations than characters-Pena, a stoic onscreen presence..”
by Andrew Lapin [The Dissolve]

THE LONGEST WEEK :

“.."The Longest Week" quickly becomes mimicry, losing any emotional pull as it strives to preserve the hospital corners of other, better helmers..”

HEAVENLY SWORD :

“..a pretty predictable and unexciting video..”
by Jeffrey Kauffman [Blu-ray.com]

“..Moreno was famous for verbal innovations and linguistic skill in his portrayal of the underdog, but the film doesn't capture the hilarity it seeks..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD :

“..but in the end it's a fond, fairly toothless B-movie take on a romance that wasn't so much May-December as straight-up statutory..”
by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly]

GHOSTBUSTERS :

“..deliriously inventive, evergreen 1984 family comedy..”
by Tom Huddleston [Time Out London]

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW :

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

THE CALLING :

“..the puzzle at the centre of the tale just seems so outlandish and preposterous, it's difficult to take the film seriously..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
