1 of 4

“..this marks a new low for Sly. Gratuitously violent and brimming with slurs against Asians, this may be his first mean-spirited movie. It's certainly his worst..”
by Scott Bowles [USA Today]
“..this is surely an inside joke..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]
“..such touches aside, though, Bullet to the Head is less authentic Delta blues than gore-spattered bubblegum..”
by Mark Jenkins [NPR]
2 of 5

“..since "Bullet to the Head" feels as if its savvy star merely skipped past the 20-odd years since the early 1990s, a rehash like that ought to be easier than doing mildly sparky but so-so movies like this..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
Review rate : C-

“..it isn't cute. It's just an embarrassment..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

“..if "Bullet" had anything else going for it, it might be a little more than just the grungy revenge flick of the week..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]

“..feels like the type of picture that doesn't really get made anymore..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
“..Bullet in the Head is a throwback to the past with its eyes trained on the present, and it proves Hill has kept up with the times..”
by Rene Rodriguez [Miami Herald]
“..boring holes into people as disposable as paper gun targets..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
“..a hard-hitting exercise in beefy, brainless fun..”
by Jordan Mintzer [Hollywood Reporter]

SELFLESS :

“.."Self/Less" is brain/less entertainment, but if there's any consolation, the impression it leaves is so fleeting that you can soon replace it with better movie memories..”
by Kevin Jagernauth [The Playlist]

FAITH OF OUR FATHERS :

“..a clumsily told story of friendship and wartime remembrance that has a tough time serving up a halfway believable moment..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

STUNG :

“..director Benni Diez tries for schlock shocks in this giant-bug flick. Sadly, what's left out here is the fun..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES: WHAT HAPPENED? :

“..the movie is fun to watch, even if it isn't always fully satisfying. Too much time is spent depicting all the designs for the film that were ultimately scotched..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

JACKIE & RYAN :

“..a homey but surprisingly enjoyable ride through honest old mid-America..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

AMY :

“..a tender, intimate, nuanced portrait of a pop idol with an appetite for destruction..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]

MALA MALA :

“..Mala Mala has no kinship to the rawness, if not ugliness, of Jennie Livingston's classic documentary, whose camera worked more like a curious open pore, and less like a hagiographic machine..”
by Diego Costa [Slant Magazine]

LARRY KRAMER IN LOVE AND ANGER :

“..the film follows the familiar narrative, which is neatly compressed in the title..”
by Matthew Gilbert [Boston Globe]

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]
