2.5 of 4

“..you get a lot to smile about..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
2 of 4

“..this might please young kids but torment discerning parents..”
by Jordan Riefe [Boston Phoenix]
“..the film's animation style is second-tier, lacking the attention to background detail of Pixar's efforts..”
by Brent Simon [Screen Daily]
“..passable animated entertainment is stronger on humor than adventure..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]
Review rate : D+

“..offers crisp animation..”
by Laremy Legel [Film.com]
“..low-rent animation, this might please young kids but torment discerning parents..”
by Jordan Riefe [The Phoenix]
2.5 of 4

“..it still provides a few smiles, and a decent amount of rainy-day, kiddie entertainment..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
“..has lots of high-flying escapades but fairly low aspirations..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
“..feel-good but not cloying, zippy but not frenetic, and refreshingly free of snark, the default setting for a lot of kids' fare these days, the feature takes a pleasingly retro-futuristic stance on matters of decor and attitude..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]
“..a lightweight, warp-speed, brightly colored trifle that should delight small children and sporadically amuse their parents..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]
2 of 4

“.."Earth" is something of a giant - OK, mini-giant - leap forward for The Weinstein Company. It's not much funnier than most of their earlier fare. But at least it's not as ugly as "Hoodwinked," "Doogal" and the rest..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]
1.5 of 5

LATEST REVIEWS

TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS :

“..yet there is a touching sincerity to the entire enterprise, its lumpiness coming from a desire not to make things up, and if you can put away your cynicism, which I clearly am struggling with, the acting might win you over too..”
by Steve Morrissey [MovieSteve]

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OUT OF THE DARK :

“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

THE SALVATION :

“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

EVERLY :

“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

BLUEBIRD :

“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
