“..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

THE TALE OF TALES :

“..a dreamy, fresh take on the kind of dark and gory yarns that have come down to us from the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault, only here they're pleasingly new and unfamiliar..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

PERFECT HIGH :

“..it's neither sufficiently impressive on its own merits to be a quality film, nor is it deliciously trashy enough to make for a pleasurable viewing..”
by Alex McCown [A.V. Club]

MAX :

“..a post-9/11 "Benji," enlivened by a solid cast and slightly edgy action..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

INTO THE GRIZZLY MAZE :

“..the elements are there for an old-fashioned animal-as-serial-killer romp, just regrettably given a formulaic telling and poorly assembled by director David Hackl..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]

FRESH DRESSED :

“..it's still interesting, just not as much fun..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

BOUND TO VENGEANCE :

“..nevertheless attempts to subvert the sadly commonplace "woman in captivity" narrative, but mostly only succeeds in testing the limits of our gore tolerance..”
by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice]

TEEN BEACH MOVIE 2 :

“..crammed with catchy tunes, bright sunshine and a perpetually beaming cast of wholesome, winning kids..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

TED 2 :

“..MacFarlane's preference for quantity over quality results in a lot of dead air, but the gags that land are howlers, and all of its crudeness (and racism, and sexism, and homophobia, etc.), the movie beats with a real heart..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]

THE LITTLE DEATH :

“..Lawson knows how to capture that elusive comic spark in short exchanges, but they're not enough to fire a full-length film..”
by Abby Garnett [Village Voice]

7 MINUTES :

“..featuring intricate, non-linear storytelling and an uncommon emotional pungency, 7 Minutes is a taut, tightly controlled exercise that should spell bigger..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
