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]

“..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]

LATEST REVIEWS

PADDINGTON :

“..marmaladen with gloriously silly jokes, pitch-perfect performances and incidental detail, this is a warm, witty and wondrously inventive great big bear-hug of a movie..”
by Chris Hewitt [Empire Online]

WILD :

“.."Wild" incorporates beautiful direction, smart writing and brave acting to tell the story of a woman made feral by grief walking from her own darkness into her own light..”
by James Rocchi [Film.com]

GRUMPY CAT'S WORST CHRISTMAS EVER :

“..is surprisingly funny, with the gleefully acerbic screenplay capturing the beloved Grumpy attitude..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]

TOY STORY THAT TIME FORGOT :

“..a lovely yuletide bauble of a Christmas special, all decked out in tinsel and surrounded by brand new toys..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

ZERO MOTIVATION :

“..the film often takes the form of a prank-filled campus co-ed comedy, flattening the narrative into a hormone-and-ego-fueled romp amid a volatile war..”
by Nick McCarthy [Slant Magazine]

BEFORE I DISAPPEAR :

“..too overwrought to really convince or resonate, yet assembled with enough flair to work as a solid calling card for its debuting helmer..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

AFTERMATH :

“..is a total mess..”
by Evan Saathoff [Badass Digest]

THE BABADOOK :

“..Jennifer Kent's impressive first film has the handcrafted feel of a pre-digital shocker..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

THE IMITATION GAME :

“..its various riffs on codes, whether moral, sexual, societal or German, are plain to see rather than enigmatic or enlightening. Luckily it's all anchored in a storming performance from Cumberbatch..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out London]

PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR :

“..a frantic, peppy, in-your-face slice of irreverent toon action..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]
