“..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

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY :

“..colourful, tongue-in-cheek fun, purpose-built for grown-up lovers of kitsch '80s science-fiction. But the Marvel formula is starting to feel, well, a little too formulaic..”
by Dan Jolin [Empire Magazine]

THE FLUFFY MOVIE :

“..the personal material shines brightest in this consistently amusing if not hilarious stand-up comedy film..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

KICK :

“..is non-stop entertainment and Salman Khan at his best..”
by Sarita Tanwar [dna India]

HERCULES :

“..a picture that is easy to indulge in, and enjoy..”
by Stefan Pape [HeyUGuys]

A MOST WANTED MAN :

“..it's not a kind way for a memorable artist to say goodbye, but there's one thing you have to admit about Mr. Hoffman-he may have been many things, but boring was not one of them..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

VERY GOOD GIRLS :

“..Very Good Girls is a film one wants to like but can't. It just doesn't work..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]

AND SO IT GOES :

“..for all of its 93 minutes, you never feel anything significant is at stake for anyone..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

MY MAN IS A LOSER :

“..that type of movie hottie who hangs with the guys, becomes a love interest for the secretly lonely bachelor..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

COME BACK TO ME :

“..the film's clumsy script elicits groans, but it's the plot that infuriates..”
by Rob Staeger [Village Voice]

LUCY :

“.."Lucy" isn't really much of a thriller - it's virtually an anti-thriller, devoid of suspense or any real sense of danger due to the fact that its heroine is more or less invincible..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
