REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..they're bad, but not just bad. They are elaborate and obliterating and unsettling and extremely funny, so that audiences end up laughing, yelling and gasping at the same time..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]
“..the films offer up black comedy, provoking laughs at wrong guesses and giggles over an absurd chain of events that results in disaster..”
by Kirk Honeycutt [Hollywood Reporter]
1 of 4

“..the cheap thrills wear off way fast, and we're left with atrocious acting, feeble writing and clueless directing..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
2 of 5

“..occasionally generates that kind of frisson, but it never goes bone-deep..”
by Kat Murphy [MSN Movies]
2 of 4

“..it's the best Final Destination sequel - if you gauge success by overall shock value..”
by Tirdad Derakhshani [Philadelphia Inquirer]
1.5 of 4

“..it's a slack but competently executed film of a script with butterknife-dull dialogue and actors cast because of their "type"..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
2.5 of 4

“..it adds a touch of humor and even offers a few knowing winks to previous installments..”
by Scott Bowles [USA Today]
“..a new wrinkle in how the killings spool out actually makes the film even more predictable..”
by Mike Hale [NY Times]
“.."FD 5" did not raise even a single goose bump - which for a movie that bills itself as horror is not a good thing..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

MAS NEGRO QUE LA NOCHE :

“..this might just be the silliest Mexican movie of the year, 3D or not..”
by Eric Ortiz Garcia [TwitchFilm]

THE EQUALIZER :

“..a stone-dumb movie, unwilling to allow Washington even a hint of uniqueness (apart from the usual silverware straightening and public book reading, shorthand cliches for "smart")..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

THE BOXTROLLS :

“..delectable treat that balances themes of identity and class warfare with Monty Python-style political skewering, quirky humor and dairy jokes..”
by Brian Truitt [USA Today]

SAINT LAURENT :

“..pure haute couture - considerably more spectacular, but also less practical, with its baroque ornamentation and slip-sliding chronology..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN :

“..painfully well-meaning but largely unpersuasive bid for cross-generational understanding feels at once of-the-moment and too obvious by half..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS :

“..an ambitious English language attempt to give Chinese American gangs their day is disappointingly uninvolving..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

FISHING WITHOUT NETS :

“..offers instead is a slick sense of style and a surfeit of credible detail..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY :

“..The Two Faces Of January may not be trying anything bold, original, or especially complicated, but what it does, it does well..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

FIELD OF LOST SHOES :

“..the film stands as a pinnacle of revisionist bullshit..”
by Nick Schager [Village Voice]

GOOD PEOPLE :

“..predictable, pat conclusion and betrays its generally solid performances and respectable artistic pedigree..”
by Cary Darling [Fort Worth Star-Telegram]
