“..Travis allows us to revel in amoral spectacle. Yes, it's bad for you, but that's what makes Dredd the hero the comic book film needs now, most of all..”
by Simon Abrams [Village Voice]
“..still slick and accessible enough to attract new ones, Dredd 3D feels like a smart and muscular addition to the sci-fi action genre..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]
3 of 4

“..not much of what Dredd has to offer is new or groundbreaking, but the fusion of familiar elements generates a smartly-paced, suspenseful 90 minutes that's a vast improvement over the 1995 film..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
4 of 5

“..it's charmingly diabolical..”
by James Rocchi [MSN Movies]
Review rate : B+

“..is the rare remake/reboot that's actually far superior to the original..”
by Laremy Legel [Film.com]
“..grim, gritty and ultra-violent, "Dredd" reinstates the somber brutality missing from the U.K. comicbook icon's previous screen outing..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]

“..Moreno was famous for verbal innovations and linguistic skill in his portrayal of the underdog, but the film doesn't capture the hilarity it seeks..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD :

“..but in the end it's a fond, fairly toothless B-movie take on a romance that wasn't so much May-December as straight-up statutory..”
by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly]

GHOSTBUSTERS :

“..deliriously inventive, evergreen 1984 family comedy..”
by Tom Huddleston [Time Out London]

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW :

“..boasts sporadically electrifying visuals but a frustratingly messy mythology..”
by Matt Risley [Total Film]

THE CALLING :

“..the puzzle at the centre of the tale just seems so outlandish and preposterous, it's difficult to take the film seriously..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

LIFE OF CRIME :

“..nothing about Life of Crime is going to linger in memory, save the unassuming way Leonard devoted himself to character and story mechanics..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

THE DAMNED :

“..is The Damned scary? Yes, a bit..”
by Ernest Hardy [Village Voice]

JAMIE MARKS IS DEAD :

“..the film uses its phantasmagoric conceit, a sickly-hued poetry, and eerie sound design to build metaphors for closeted homoeroticism and melancholic unfulfillment..”
by Aaron Hillis [Village Voice]

LAST WEEKEND :

“..the most striking moments in Last Weekend are not the expected ones..”
by Serena Donadoni [Village Voice]

THE CONGRESS :

by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
