1 of 4

“..the visuals are sharp and the 3-D above average..”
by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle]
2 of 5

“..the empty imagery of the Cirque shows often seems exciting in the moment, but lacks deeper meaning..”
by Mark Olsen [Los Angeles Times]
“..the characters played by Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd take in a performance of "Mystere" under the influence of hallucinogenic mushrooms..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
2 of 4

“..the camerawork feels natural and unforced, one of the primary achievements of the enjoyable if not essential Worlds Away..”
by Howard Cohen [Miami Herald]
“..the brow-furrowing is understandable, though, as, like most abstractedly mystical Cirque stage shows, the action follows the logic of a dream..”
by Megan Lehmann [Hollywood Reporter]
“..the best ones here are the simplest, during which the eye can follow each body's flouting of the rules of gravity and bone structure..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]
0.5 of 4

“..most mangled of all are the segments from "The Beatles LOVE,"..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
2.5 of 4

“..it fails to fully convey the thrill of running off to join the circus, for real..”
by Loren King [Boston Globe]
2.5 of 4

“..despite its appeal, the movie lacks a judicious film editor, one who doesn't cut in the middle of the breathtaking, death-defying aerial moves by the Cirque performers..”
by Carrie Rickey [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..as befits a film designed to attract a more family-oriented audience than that for Cirque's steamier stage work..”
by Rob Nelson [Variety]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE CROSSING 2 :

“..an inert follow-up that doesn't deliver enough visual or emotional payoff in its overdue yet short-lived shipwreck climax..”
by Maggie Lee [Variety]

SHAUN THE SHEEP :

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
