“..woefully short on humour plus a character that never manages to break out of one dimension..”
by Tim Evans [Sky Movies]
1 of 5

“..there’s none more woeful than this muddled “comedy” starring Simon Pegg and written by Kula Shaker frontman Crispian Mills..”
by David Edwards [Daily Record]
3 of 5

“..there's enough verve and imagination on show to make this debut feature from Kula Shaker's Crispian Mills worth sticking with..”
by Neil Smith [MSN Movies]
2 of 5

“..the slapstick set-pieces can be seen coming from miles away, while the overall gag-count is disappointingly low..”
by Terry Staunton [Radio Times]
“..the film seems to be a little bit of everything and not enough of anything - hence it’s on limited release..”
by Alison Jones [Birminghammail]
“..the film is not left wanting for ideas, with Jack finding the potential for death in the guise of Christmas Carollers, dirty socks and, yes, laundrettes..”
by Steven [Film Ireland]
“..it's clearly a labour of love - something lacking in so much of Hollywoodâ��s contemporary output - and definitely superior to much of it..”
by Kim Francis [Get Reading]
1 of 5

“..hold on to your comfort blanket and have the cloves of garlic handy..”
by Xan Brooks [Guardian [UK]]
1 of 5

“..exasperation eventually morphs into unrelenting pain, and there’s not a single, solitary laugh to be had..”
by Trevor Johnston [Time Out London]
1 of 5

“..a fine stop-motion animation sequence, however, denies it an honest swing at worst-of-the-year status..”
by Robbie Collin [Telegraph]

LATEST REVIEWS

A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 :

“..the script is lazy, recycling countless genre cliches rather than inventing novel twists..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

MAKE YOUR MOVE :

“.."Make Your Move" is an underwritten mess..”
by Inkoo Kang [LA Times]

KID CANNABIS :

“..this wild story sells itself, no narration needed..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]

BEARS :

“..another typically engaging, vividly shot entry in the successful Disney wildlife series..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

A PROMISE :

“..awkward, passionless drama conveys neither the sensuality nor the drawn-out sense of longing required..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

FADING GIGOLO :

“..this second film is the keeper: the kind of keenly observed cultural clash that still finds room for dancing, a sultry fish-deboning (you just have to see it) and awakening..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

TIME IS ILLMATIC :

“..the documentary offers a number of reasons to appreciate its ongoing legacy, with sufficient production values to hold the tribute together..”
by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]

HEAVEN IS FOR REAL :

“..a supposedly true story that uses faulty logic to reduce the complexity of faith to a fairy-tale. By rights, it should displease atheists and believers alike..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ANTBOY :

“.."Antboy" is peppered with fun, cleverly shot and edited action bits as well as apropos comic-book style visuals..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

13 SINS :

“..a creepy little diversion that ultimately unravels long before its hero's fragile psyche does..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
