REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  4 of 5 [Rate It]

“..the sky's not the limit in this well made but dramatically diffuse art house blockbuster..”
by Jordan Mintzer [Hollywood Reporter]
1 of 4

“..it isn't as complicated as it thinks..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
2 of 4

“..is pop spiritualism, comic-book grandiosity, Zen for dummies. I can't say I didn't enjoy it on some level, but it's not the level of universal wisdom the Wachowskis and Tykwer would have us be on..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
3 of 4

“..is consistently challenging, frequently entertaining and occasionally maddening..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
2.5 of 4

“..is a movie about everything, but that's the same as a movie about nothing..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
2.5 of 4

“..Cloud Atlas left me feeling disconnected..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
3 of 5

“..Cloud Atlas is going to be far and away the most divisive film of 2012, but I don't think it's possible to fault it for shortage of chutzpah..”
by Tim Robey [Daily Telegraph]
2 of 5

“..at 163 minutes Cloud Atlas carries all the marks of a giant folly, and those unfamiliar with the book will be baffled. Yet it's hard to wholly condemn the directors' ambition - this is fast-paced and cleverly assembled, with the best of the performances..”
by Henry Barnes [The Guardian]
2.5 of 4

“..a consistently tangled experience - captivating and frustrating, occasionally enjoyable to piece together, and sometimes a slog..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LATEST REVIEWS

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]

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 :

“..good for a few laughs, but not much more..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

THE SEARCH :

“..the film as a whole is tepid and familiar enough that it's hard to even find much to salvage in the acting..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

RISE OF THE LEGEND :

“..a slick, polished and entertaining reboot of a folk legend..”
by Elizabeth Kerr [Hollywood Reporter]

FOOD CHAINS :

“..Rawal takes a compassionate but dry approach that suggests he's focused on making a call to arms, not art. The best documentaries manage to be both..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

SEASONS OF LOVE :

“.."Seasons of Love" is a tedious love story that doesn't have the drama nor excitement of even ten minutes on the F train..”
by Monique A. Williams [Shadow and Act]

A ROYAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."A Royal Christmas" may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, if only because the story is so underpowered by original ideas..”
by Nancy DeWolf Smith [Wall Street Journal]

HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE :

“..as a romantic comedy that stands on its own, Hello Ladies: The Movie hits every objective. It's a structurally sound movie, which may sound like an insult but simply means that it's not just a stretched out episode of Hello Ladies..”
by LaToya Ferguson [A.V. Club]

LATE PHASES :

“..Late Phases fails to deliver either shocks or real drama..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]
