REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..this running-on-fumes sequel may not be quite as painful a thing to experience, it will waste considerably more of your time..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
2 of 5

“..the big name involvement ensures that the movie is watchable, but the underdeveloped script and unconvincing direction do them a great disservice..”
by Ben Rawson-Jones [Digital Spy]
2 of 4

“..the action isn't any more realistic, exactly, but director Patrick Hughes keeps things visually interesting with acrobatics, motorcycles, tanks and explosions..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
Review rate : B

“..sometimes there really is no substitute for age and experience..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

“..Patrick Hughes' direction is so awkward that the movie emerges as an incoherent blur..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..a winning formula appears to be faltering, even with an infusion of new blood..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

“.."Expendables 3" actually is a junky '80s movie, like a face-lifted "Delta Force"..”

LATEST REVIEWS

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE ROGUE NATION :

“..Rogue Nation may not be the best, the tightest, or even the most logically coherent M:I flick, but there should be more movies like it: relentlessly thrilling, smart entertainments for folks..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

VACATION :

“..everyone deserves a vacation. And everyone deserves a better comedy than "Vacation"..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

PAPER TOWNS :

“..the adaptation of Paper Towns is a failure. But even as it fails to either develop or subvert its characterization of Margo, it succeeds in complicating all of its ancillary characters..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

SOUTHPAW :

“..a predictable flurry of melodramatic jabs..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

THE VATICAN TAPES :

“..The Vatican Tapes is comparatively inert, even though it features a lot of the askew camera angles and jump-cuts that fans of the Crank series expect..”
by Noel Murray [A.V. Club]

PIXELS :

“..every joke is forced, every special effect is un-special..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

UNEXPECTED :

“..for a movie about surprises, though, there really aren't many... this academic study tends to feel like it's by the book..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

SAMBA :

“..if it weren't for Sy's charm and cinematographer Stephane Fontaine's superb eye (the scenes set at the immigration detainee camp are especially evocative from a visual standpoint), Samba would be a total wash..”
by Keith Uhlich [A.V. Club]

AMERICAN HEIST :

“..alas, this doesn't excuse the film's childish simplicity, be it a line of cheesy dialogue, an overused camera trick, or the primitive romance..”
by Nikola Grozdanovic [The Playlist]

10 CENT PISTOL :

“..Martin's script holds some hard-boiled appeal, but his direction (some nice technical flourishes aside) doesn't back it up..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
