REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Go! Watch this movie. You'll regret if not seeing it.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

4 of 5

“..there's also plenty of blood-letting, standoffs, shootouts and wordless mini-meditations on men and criminality..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
3 of 4

“..the minimal dialogue does lead to a few too many fussy/busy "actorly" moments. But they have collaborated on a car picture that unnerves us with its idling quiet, and then pins our ears back when they stomp the accelerator..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..the film seems to have almost sprung into life as a coiled, confident and closed-off man..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..plans go awry, and the driver is on the run, using his skills, wits and a horror movie villain's relentless force to achieve his goals..”
by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle]
4 of 5

“..it's such a smooth, good-looking ride that you'll put up with the annoyances..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]
“..it's opens with what might be its most successful, least violent set piece, a getaway from a robbery choreographed to quietly insistent techno music..”
by Kenneth Turan [LA Times]
Review rate : B+

“..it's a visually and aurally edgy Euro-influenced American genre movie about the coolness of noir-influenced American genre movies about the coolness of driving - especially in L.A...”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
“..it's a fun, if not exhilarating, ride, one sped along with the help of a wonderfully assembled cast..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
3.5 of 4

“..it shows that movies can generate a testosterone-and-adrenaline cocktail without requiring viewers to undergo a frontal lobotomy to appreciate the result..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..is a sleek, tense piece of work that, as a vehicle for Ryan Gosling, has a kind of daredevil control, swerving dangerously close to and abruptly away from self-parody..”
by J. Hoberman [Village Voice]

LATEST REVIEWS

HOME :

“..Home doesn't stand out as fresh or particularly funny. There are stretches that feel flat..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

GET HARD :

“..Hart and Ferrell may not be Pryor and Wilder, but they score several laughs in this slim comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ELECTRIC SLIDE :

“..lazy and contrived retread can ever hope to be..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

NED RIFLE :

“..Ned Rifle is top notch quirk and really exciting to watch..”
by Mike Shutt [Rope of Silicon]

SERENA :

“..while the story falls a bit into melodrama, that can't chop away at the solid drama the stars and director build beautifully..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

WHILE WE'RE YOUNG :

“..in While We're Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds..”
by David Edelstein [Vulture]

NIGHTLIGHT :

“..it's all very familiar in that Blair Witch kind of way, with neither the characters nor situations proving remotely interesting..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

WHITE GOD :

“..the way director Kornel Mundruczo got Body and Luke to run the gamut of emotions from face-licking adorableness to teeth-baring killers baying for blood is genuinely impressive..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

APARTMENT TROUBLES :

“..a nearly laughless comedy that doesn't do its writer/director/stars any favors..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER :

“..has some recognizable stars, but they are trapped in a slim story padded with lots and lots of flesh-eating..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
