4 of 4

“..to varying degrees, each of the picture's protagonists proves to be a flawed individual..”
by Kam Williams [NewsBlaze]
1.5 of 4

“..there's more humor, toying with stereotypes, playing around with miscommunication..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..the performances are effective all around with director Kendrick quite moving..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
Review rate : C

“..the movie starts off well enough with agreeable characters, passable dialogue, and the genial tone of an episode of 7th Heaven, but eventually devolves into over-the-top drama and a suffocating heavy-handedness..”
by Keith Staskiewicz [Entertainment Weekly]
“..proves a particularly clunky, tunnel-visioned vehicle whose overbearing, overlong script nearly smothers the movie's quibble-free message: Fathers must be responsible. And what of the importance of mothers here? It often feels like a case of "Oh, them"..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]
2 of 4

“..it's a blunt approach that filmmaker and lead Alex Kendrick (Kirk Cameron's "Fireproof") need not resort to as much as he does, given the ability he can flash for sentimental drama, not to mention wry humor..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]

CRONIES :

“..Cronies is funny and moving in equal doses, a humane film about a handful of guys just trying to get by on the hands they've been dealt by life..”
by Dominick Mayer [Consequence of Sound]

WITH THIS RING :

“..the dialogue and complex weave of relationships feel believable and natural. So even if the outcomes don't feel like revelations, they feel right, and the trip to get there feels the same..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

PROJECT ALMANAC :

“..modestly entertaining..”
by Jordan Hoffman [The Guardian]

JUSTICE LEAGUE: THRONE OF ATLANTIS :

“..the Justice League members have some great moments to enjoy, although they all take a backseat to the main Aquaman plot..”
by Joshua Yehl [IGN Movies]

DOPE :

“..a crowd-pleaser from start to finish..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

STRANGERLAND :

“..Strangerland is ruined by the preciousness of its ideas..”

TEN THOUSAND SAINTS :

“..it's a film that clearly has nothing but compassion for the troubled teens at the center of it, and well-worth checking out..”
by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]
