REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

3 of 5

“..wastes the power that it built in those brief scenes prior to sagging and buckling under the tried and tested conventions of genre thriller, with its conspiracy theories and MacGuffins..”
by Tom Seymour [Little White Lies]
2 of 5

“..the result is plodding, somewhat misbegotten, and never slick enough to sweep us along..”
by Trevor Johnston [Time Out]
3 of 5

“..ittle too protracted to be suspenseful and see-saws between straight-ahead genre movie business and state-of-the-nation sincerity..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Magazine]
2 of 5

“..at times, it's almost as funny as Four Lions. The trouble is, it's not meant to be comedy..”
by Cleanskin [Sky Movies]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OUT OF THE DARK :

“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

THE SALVATION :

“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

EVERLY :

“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

BLUEBIRD :

“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE LAZARUS EFFECT :

“..still, "The Lazarus Effect," clocking in at a brief 86 minutes, doesn't go far enough, isn't scary enough and has mad scientists who just aren't mad enough..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
