Review rate : D

“..this movie feels like such an extremely low-budget one and things don't get any more exciting than a couple of poorly filmed gunfights. Certainly nothing spectacular, surprising or exciting..”
by Marcello [JapanCinema.net]
“..it's a thoroughly average B-action-thriller that only has a solid cast to recommend it..”
by Gordon Sullivan [DVD Verdict]
“..is ultimately worth a look. It may suffer from a few major flaws, but it succeeds in being a pretty cool film with many little and a few big pleasures..”
by Zachary Leeman [Breitbart]
2 of 5

“..in this and many other respects 'The Courier' just comes off as lazy..”
by Daniel Hirshleifer [High-Def Digest]
1.5 of 5

“..in case the cruddiness of the feature film wasn't enough to convince viewers to stay away, The Courier throws in weak PQ and an underwhelming collection of bonus features to boot. Skip it..”
by Tyler Foster [DVD Talk]

by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

VERY GOOD GIRLS :

“..Very Good Girls is a film one wants to like but can't. It just doesn't work..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]

AND SO IT GOES :

“..for all of its 93 minutes, you never feel anything significant is at stake for anyone..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

MY MAN IS A LOSER :

by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

HERCULES :

“..a picture that is easy to indulge in, and enjoy..”

COME BACK TO ME :

“..the film's clumsy script elicits groans, but it's the plot that infuriates..”
by Rob Staeger [Village Voice]

LUCY :

“.."Lucy" isn't really much of a thriller - it's virtually an anti-thriller, devoid of suspense or any real sense of danger due to the fact that its heroine is more or less invincible..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

PERSECUTED :

“..terrible attempt at a political thriller for the religious right is aimed not at Christians in general but at a certain breed of them..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]

MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT :

“..as the stars roam those gardens and vistas in their jaunty flapper couture, the story feels shapeless, un-tailored, defiantly off the rack..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]

SEX TAPE :

“.."Sex Tape" doesn't seduce, it doesn't surprise and it certainly doesn't satisfy. It only leaves you feeling a little taken advantaged of..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
