“..surprisingly dimensional life..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
3.5 of 4

by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
Review rate : B-

“..it looks great, it sounds great (Henry Jackman's score is a keeper), is performed strongly across the board, has some heart and soul behind, isn't afraid to be a little weird sometimes..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

“..has its boots on familiar, formulaic, Hollywood turf..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]

by Joe Williams [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
4 of 5

“..directors Anthony and Joe Russo have made a film that not only delivers the goods on the action front, as movies of this sort of movie must, but is also about something..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
4 of 5

“..despite featuring three Avengers in lead roles, Captain America: The Winter Soldier feels tonally distinct from its Marvel forerunners, more spy thriller than superhero sequel..”

DRAKE'S HOMECOMING: THE LOST FOOTAGE :

“..there's little here for casual Drake listeners, but the film will definitely appeal to diehard fans..”
by Daniel Otis [Toronto Star]

IT FOLLOWS :

“..It Follows is yet another example of how smart the indie horror game is these days..”
by Brian Truitt [USA Today]

BACKCOUNTRY :

“..solid performances from the small cast and robust visuals..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

THE WALKING DECEASED :

“..the film, directed by Scott Dow, doesn't attempt any meta-ness beyond perfunctory sight gags..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

DO YOU BELIEVE? :

“..a dramatically different type of movie than "God's Not Dead" - different theme, different direction - but many moviegoers will walk away saying it's a better movie..”
by Michael Foust [Christian Post]

GROWING UP AND OTHER LIES :

“..unfocused and ineffective..”
by Eddie Goldberger [NY Daily News]

TRACERS :

“.."Tracers" is fun to look at, if not too bright, and even includes a line I can only assume is a winking reference to Lautner's claim to fame: "There can only be one alpha in every pack"..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

JAUJA :

“..there's a line between artfully contemplative and just plain boring. This film eventually crosses it into Snoozeville..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

DANNY COLLINS :

“.."Danny Collins" is certainly watchable, but don't go expecting much in the way of surprises..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

ZOMBEAVERS :

“..disgusts, terrifies and tickles in equal measure with grotesque creatures and a sickening sense of humor..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]
